Are you looking for a budget-friendly DYI upgrade that can move your home fast? Cream or white roman shades are also a good choice. If you want to make them pop, add a dash of color with pretty ribbon trim that can be sewn or glued onto the shade.
Have you thought about your interior color scheme?
Soft whites, plaster gray, and very subtle colors can make the walls recede from the eye and make your home a blank canvass for the next owner. “Greige,” a pale gray with a beige undertone, is one of the most versatile colors for staging. This pale taupe is a cool, sophisticated hue that can elegantly complement most furnishings.
If your home was a movie, you’d want it to be a blockbuster. A big part of that movie’s success is the background music in your movie. The paint is the background music that sets the stage for your home to shine.
When you decide to sell, you have to think seriously about removing some of your personal indulgences.
Your home is a personal statement about who you are. But when you put your home on the market, it’s no longer your home. It’s a product for sale.
When you decide to sell, it’s time to return the home to a less personal space.
Consider these ideas:
- Organize your work areas. For example, a well-organized laundry room can actually add a lot of appeal for very little money.
- If you have a room that is snug remove superfluous furnishings. For example, remove nightstands in a smaller bedroom. Remove end-tables from a smaller living room.
- Arrange furniture to maximize floor space but to create conversation zones where a buyer can imagine chatting with friends or family.
- Flowers can brighten a room. A strategically placed plant can be an outstanding focal point.
