Rugs can make or break your space especially if it is a small space. When preparing your home for sale, rugs should always be used.
Make sure there is a rug in the main entrance. This is important so potential buyers can remove their shows and avoid messing up your front entrance.
The second space rugs should be used is in the living room. When staging, I typically use 5×7 rugs to ground a space. The addition of rugs makes the room feel warm and inviting and cozy. Make sure to use rugs on all types of floor (laminate, wood and others)
