Maybe these Glendale, Arizona sellers have the right idea. Why hide your toiletries and cleaning supplies in a cabinet or medicine cabinet?
There’s no bending over or searching for items. Very handy & convenient this way. Great idea!

The hot trend right now in kitchen remodeling is adding glass tile to the backsplash. But be careful…good intentions can lead to blurred vision from busy patterns.
You can buy squares of the glass tile at Home Depot or Lowe’s, which then results in a grid pattern. In this photo, you can clearly see the squares.
These sellers tried to update their 1950s/1960s vintage bathroom with “modern” glass tile walls.
Bright colors in smaller glass tile pieces are starting to show up now.
May I suggest using a monochromatic pattern? Doesn’t look so busy.
It’s more pleasing to the eyes.
Hold on. When I suggested monochromatic tile, I meant it should match the rest of the kitchen.
These sellers hired someone to hand paint the glass backsplash in their kitchen.

August 26th is National Dog Day.
It is the dog days of August.
How much is that doggie in the window?
I was on a Realtor home tour this summer. As we approached the next home, there was a pit bull a few houses away, chained outside, in the 100+ degree heat, barking. Many agents thought it was cruel for the dog to be chained outside in the heat; many others were turned off by the dog (buyers would have to drive past it every day).

1. You might be upside down with your home’s value, but don’t prove it with the photo!
2. The only lines you should see are lines of people to visit your house.
3. Close-up photos never tell the true story.
4. Your reflection in the bathroom mirrors reflects your photography skills.
The four faces of Eve? She’s reflected four times in this photo. At least we know she’s not a vampire.
5. Fish eye photos creep out buyers. Is that mold on the walls or wallpaper?
6. Don’t take a photo from behind glass.
7. Take photos to show off the features of the house or of a room, not of personal items. It’s doubtful those towels are worth more than $3.
8. Watch out for shadows!

Four family rooms for your consideration.
What would you remove in this family room to look less busy?
After the family photos are removed and the curtain unknotted, what else should be done here?
This one’s too easy: the gun safe, the miniature popcorn machine, the jacket, the dog, the tie-dye towel, the cuckoo clock, etc.
The vines, the clothes, the macramé. Anything else?

Home staging request: if only one item could be removed from a room to make it look nicer, what item would that be?
A motorcycle! [Aberdeen, Washington]
A flyswatter! [Hot Springs, Arkansas]
A towel! [Phoenix]
A hammer! There is a jug of Arm & Hammer laundry detergent, but let’s not be so literal. Where’s the arm? [Glendale, Arizona]
