Interior decorating ideas play an important role in the sale of any home, in this uncertain real estate market, even more so with the incorporation of all the new foreclosures. The best-selling features of a home are kitchens, bathrooms, master bedrooms, outdoor living spaces, and curb appeal. These characteristics are what today’s home buyers compare when they buy their new home. The key question to ask yourself is if you really want to sell your home and do you still have your personal signature? By the time the house goes on the market, it belongs to the future owner. Sorry this sounds cruel, but it’s time to pack up and move on, it’s not your personality, this is business.
Mark it sold, when returning its identity, you must remove everything personal from the house. Here is a list of items to remove, photos, outdated or worn furniture, toys, garage clutter, theme rooms, wallpaper, red, bright or dark colors, custom artwork, have carpets professionally cleaned or replaced , garden maintenance and repair of anything. which is damaged.
Now that the house has not been personalized we can address the colors of the rooms, a cool neutral palette will relate to most buyers, a cooler color scheme makes the rooms appear larger, with the use of the spectrum of lighter colors, especially in the bedrooms. Lighter yellows, beige, and soft greens are perfect kitchen colors, and a fabulous design technique is to bring the outdoors in by using one color.
A good designer knows a client’s concerns and, right now, their thinking, more time, additional money, but consider six months to a year on the market and your home has yet to sell. You can agree that a few gallons of paint and some muscle strength don’t seem so insignificant in comparisons.
Spaces always look better when they are designed as bedroom settings, using their own, borrowed or rented furniture and accessories. Remember, only personal items were removed, your buyers should be able to imagine living in the house. Each room is important, smaller spaces require less furniture, larger rooms need more, bedrooms vary in size, and the master bedroom will need more attention.
Let’s start room by room starting with the entryway, neutral walls, entry table, desk lamp, vase and generic artwork, it does not include rugs, mirrors or clocks. We usually interpret an area rug to be used to cover a defect, mirrors only reflect the tired faces of home buyers, and gifts of a watch will limit your home’s viewing time.
The soft taupe, green, burgundy dining room on the walls are great color combinations. The room should convey an intimate and entertaining atmosphere. A smaller dining area will require a walking space to feel larger, place the host and hostess chairs on the side of a window or on the left and right side of a side table. A large framed mirror will reflect the chandelier adding depth to the room. On the side board, group candle holders, a simple bowl, or a simple coffee service. A fresh orchid plant in a porcelain container and a couple of botanical art pieces on the wall provide an elegant and cozy touch. Some neutral colored panel style curtains as window treatments will finish the room very nicely.
Living room, neutral wall sofa, two chair side table with cocktail table with table lamp area rug will anchor furniture, table and floor lamps, artwork, decorative box or a set of three candles on the cocktail table, simple under indicated curtains, or superior treatments.
Kitchen and living room are usually connected, warmer pale yellow, soft green walls, minimal or bare curtains, brighter, cleaner, better. Clean the countertops of all appliances and other kitchen aids, by doing this you create the allusion of more work surface, add fruit or vegetable bowls, and remove any detail on the top of the cabinets.
The family room should be visually warm, cozy and attractive. Furniture should be functional, sectional, or two small sofas, a chair, and an ottoman such as a cocktail table, tray, side tables, and lamps. If the room has a fireplace, treat it as the focal point and organize the room around it.
On the mantelpiece, display a large plate on a stand, or a piece of art without glass, tall chandeliers, and a stack of books, three to five high. A symmetrical style is less formal. Warning, the top design mistake made is a mirror that hangs over the fireplace, directing the gaze away from the focal point and drawing attention to the ceiling fan, the cat walk upstairs, or the dishes in the kitchen sink. the kitchen.
Master bedroom, neutral walls, bed, simple elegant bedding, side tables, lamps, dresser with decorative framed mirror, chair and window curtains. Secondary bedrooms and bathrooms use cool, pale paint colors on the walls and visually expand the size of the room. One double bed, or sofa bed, dresser and desk with chair and superior window treatments. Treat all bathrooms consistently with votive candles, folded towels, potted orchids, and simple floral or graphic framed art.
We have found that believing in a buyer who shares your personal tastes will never get in your way. The home is now a welcoming, move-in-ready living space more appealing to a broader consumer base than ever before. Transformation only occurs when instructions on how to sell your home are followed. A valuable lesson and not so easy to learn, the house sells itself, when the owner becomes the seller, giving the buyer the opportunity to dream.
