Go Green – Take a cue from the tiny plant craze and jazz up the homestead with a pop of color. Plants instantly make a home look updated and create a cozy feel. Consider adding a row of live herbs in pretty pots in the kitchen, a leafy tropical plant in the family room or colorful hanging baskets on the front porch.
Perfect Proportions – Large furniture in a small space can make a room feel cramped and disrupt the flow. On the flip side, smaller pieces in a larger space can create an empty and bare vibe. Start with a room at a time and remove the furniture or move it to one side. Bring items back in one at a time and experiment with different placement. This exercise will help determine if you need to have a yard sale or go shopping!
Clean the Closets – Today’s buyers are looking for maximum storage space. Tackle all the closets in your home one at a time and separate items into “donate”, “throw away” and “keep” piles. Once the space is cleared out, add organizers and cute baskets to create additional space that is functional and beautiful. Consider this your opportunity to start packing!
WFH or Hobby Space – Home offices and hobby spaces have quickly risen to the top of the “must have” list for buyers. If you have a room for a dedicated work from home space, make it welcoming with shelving and other organizational and functional accents. If you don’t have an entire room, spruce up a tucked away nook with an oversized chair, lamp and side table.
Let the Light Shine In – A dark house can appear uninviting or even dirty. Brighten up your abode by cleaning the windows, placing lamps and additional lighting where needed and choosing lighter paint colors for the walls. Hanging a mirror in a strategic location can also help amplify the light.
