If you’re thinking about selling your home, updating your decor can increase your home’s value and attract buyers. With smart decorating choices, your home may sell faster and for more money! Beautiful decorations and attractive, functional home fixtures are always a good start. Whether you’re thinking about putting your home on the market or would simply like to improve your home’s overall value, smart decor can help.
Staging is the art of making your home look more attractive, usually for buyers. People usually use matching furnishings, cute accessories and smart fixture installation to stage their property.
Staging can be done on a small scale by replacing pillows and upgrading curtains, or it can happen on a big scale, with a purchase of all new furniture, new paint and other big-ticket items. Investing in staging is a popular way that homeowner prepare their property for sale.
Upgrade Your Kitchen
Staging the kitchen is a good move because many home buyers look at the kitchen first. Many older kitchens can benefit from a renovation, especially if the kitchen lacks features like an island and open shelving. If you’re thinking about selling your home and have time and resources to renovate your kitchen, get started by meeting with contractors as soon as possible.
If you don’t have time or resources to renovate your kitchen, consider taking a slightly less time consuming route. You can install a kitchen island all on your own. For example, this Jeffrey Alexander kitchen island looks great in vintage kitchens and is compact enough to fit in tight spaces.
Coordinate Furnishings and Accessories
Many homes have a patch-work quilt feel because they’re decorated in stages with mismatched furniture and accessories. Coordinating your furnishings and accessories can make your entire home seem more organized, maintained and attractive.
Some people tackle this project by purchasing a furniture set and matching accessories. You can also handle this problem by selecting a main color and a few accent colors and proceeding to purchase furniture and accessories that match this color scheme. This is a good idea if you’re trying to spread your coordinated furnishings all over the house, rather than buying a furniture set for just one room.
For example, imagine you’ve selected gray as your main color and sunny yellow and white for your accent colors. Purchasing gray furniture like one of these Jennifer Taylor Sofa Beds and the yellow and white Pomeroy decorative throw pillow can turn your living room into a place of comfort and style, especially if all the other furniture is similarly matched.
Let Light Into Your Home
Light is one of your most crucial assets when it comes to staging and preparing to sell. Light makes rooms look bigger, less cluttered, more spacious and more comfortable. Many homeowners block natural daylight by using dark, heavy curtains in public spaces like the living room and dining room.
One of the best ways to let light into your house without installing a new window is to take down these heavy curtains and replace them with sheers. Worried sheers alone will make your windows look bare? Try patterned sheers like the Dolce Mela Prague window sheers curtains panel.
