Furnish the House, But Don’t Overdecorate
Empty houses are hard to see. Furniture provides scale, shows use, and adds light to spaces. Without it, the space is just walls, windows, floors, and ceilings. It is important to show how the space is used and how big the space is. Once you have taken care of these items, then stop decorating. There is a point when the decoration is no longer about the house and more about the decoration. Stop before you get there.
Prepare Every Room You Plan to Shoot
For outstanding advice on how to take real estate photos, Linova Photography compiled a room-by-room guide demonstration on how to prepare for a photo shoot. Here are a few tips for preparing kitchens and bathrooms for your photo shoot:
To prepare a kitchen for a photo shoot:
Remove everything from the top and doors of the fridge, including magnets, business cards, photos, and so on.
Clear and wipe off the counters so they look polished and clutter-free.
Hide dish soaps, sponges, paper towels, and anything else around the sink.
Curate the kitchen or dining table with a nice set of dishes.
Place a bowl of fruit or a bouquet of flowers on the kitchen counter if it doesn’t detract from the finishes.
To prepare a bathroom for a photo shoot:
Put toilet seats and lids down.
Hide toiletries that are on the counter or in the shower or bath.
Clean mirrors and any glass surfaces.
Remove old towels from doors, showers, and bathtubs and hang a new set of towels that coordinate with the paint or tiles.
Depending on the space, place flowers or a potted plant on the counter.
