When selling your home you want people to feel relaxed and picture themselves in your space. Setting the dining room table helps to do just that. It can evoke memories of past holiday gatherings or dinner parties and help them look forward to creating future memories. Clean and elegant is the key and just work with colors that compliment your current decor. Festive holiday decorations look great, however be careful not to use them in photographs to sell your home. You wouldn't want Christmas photos on your listing when it is July!
