Support Local Nonprofits While You Move
Furniture and Houseware Donations in Asheville, NC
If you are selling your house, a key focus should be on highlighting the positive focal points in each room. To do this, organizing and paring down your household furniture and decor is essential. During a Home Staging Consultation with Tralala Interiors, I suggest what homegoods need to be pared down and what areas would benefit from a little TLC. To make the items you love shine, I suggest what will stay, what can be stored, and what can find a new loving home through donation.
Whether you are moving or just looking to pare down your household, there are many donation options in the Asheville area that can put your furniture and household items into homes and hands that need them. Most donations are also tax deductible.

Organization/paring down your household is just one of the topics that I cover during a Staging Consultation. During the in-home “walk-and-talk” staging consultation, we will go through the home together room-by-room and create a customized Staging Report and Checklist that prioritizes the action items you should focus on to put your house in the best light for photos and viewings.
