Who reads a book from the rear cover backwards? Unless you’re that person, this article, really more of a guide, will help you to navigate through all the previously posted articles with ease so you can get your home staged and sold!

Over the past thirty articles posted, there’s been a variety of topics covered, but it really makes more sense if you read them in an appropriate order. Newest articles always get posted to the top, but if you haven’t covered the basics yet, you might get easily confused about where to start. Use this article as your guide from start to finish. As future articles are posted, this guide will get updated, too.

Below, the articles have been grouped three ways: those that will help you understand the concept of home staging, those that give advice about different aspects of home staging and advice about how to stage specific rooms in your home.
