Regarding the initial comment of "keeping it fresh", if a home has a bay or box window, a great way to easily decorate to the season and the style of the home is to install a bromm bay window trellis. It's pretty amazing how much a bromm enhances a room!

I am amazed in reading all these article about smells, and staging a home for sale, not one mention of cleaning the WINDOWS. There is something about being able to see out of a clean window and letting the light in that makes a room shine. All of the ideas above are great. I would just add this one more thing to the list.

Yes, windows! Good point. I am always impressed when businesses keep their windows clean- especially restaurants. It looks beautiful and shows attention to detail.
