Staging Emergency! Too Much Stuff!

June 9th, 2013 · 10 Comments

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania home with too much stuff.  It’s not full-on hoarding and not dirty, just very cluttered.

The kitchen isn’t that bad, but you’ll see, as the photos go on and on, how much stuff is there.  By the way, there are 2 stoves in this photo.

And here’s a third stove!  Macramé!

It makes your eyes go all over.

So many pillows, they’ve spilled onto the floor!

Rugs, mismatched furniture, and a mirror in the corner.

More rugs!!  It looks like the floor is caving in on the left.  The end table is leaning against the wall!

Visual clutter everywhere.  More macramé.

The owl lamp is a real hoot!  Another macramé hanging.

There’s stuff everywhere.

Bedroom with more rugs.

This might be a combination bedroom, office, bathroom, and laundry room.  It looks like there’s a toilet behind the blue curtain on the middle right.  All those chairs.  Do you sit and wait your turn for the toilet?

Good grief.  How many towels do you need?  I count at least 20 towels!  And 5 scrubby pads.

Make it stop!  It’s giving me a headache.  It’s overwhelming.

It would take a week to dust everything in this house.

Make it stop.  I need to close my eyes and declutter my brain.

    This doesn’t look like someones home or house to me. It looks like a shop laid out to look like a home. Several of the rooms caught the overflow.It also looks like this was probably a duplex and an effort was made to combine the houses. Would explain the multiple kitchens. Only a couple of areas actually look like they are lived in.

    There is no dust or garbage lying around. No dirty pillows visible, and the bath tub is clean. It probably doesn’t smell bad.

    This makes this house a lot better then many others we have seen!

    if you buy better give them a week to move out with that much junk!!

    I wonder if they’re selling to buy a bigger house because they’ve run out of room?

    I bet this is a hoarder issue. Looks clean and somewhat tidy for all the stuff crammed inside. Do these things make the owner feel safe?

    Wait until you have to move all this stuff and then you’ll find out if these things are important enough to keep. *military brat and wife speaking from experience here :-)

    I feel exhausted just looking at pictures of all that stuff and trying to image what it would be like to live in a house that’s so busy.

    i love the owl lamp, needs an updated shade though.

    It looks like they were trying to give the bathroom a nice spa feeling with all of the stuff around the tub, but it just looks scary.

    When I look at houses like this, my first thought is, “Can the seller get all their crap out of here before closing?”
