Dezigner Digz HIP TIPZ: Home Staging, Design & Decor Tips & Nods to the Profession: Tip #'s 141-145

Not sure what HIP TIPZ is?  Please click on Our Introduction to find out more.  Now, let's get down to business -it's time to roll:

 

HIP TIPZ #141

For an open concept home with a loft that is visible from the ground floor, paint the entire ground floor one colour to enlarge the space.  Paint the loft above a lighter shade of the same colour to extend the height of your space.

 

HIP TIPZ #142

Spray your laundry room with a fresh linen-scented room spray before showings.  Be careful not to use too much though!

 

HIP TIPZ #143

Tired of your existing patio stones, but can't afford to replace them this year?  How about adding an outdoor area rug to a section of the patio.  A great way to add some zing.

 

HIP TIPZ #144

Do you have floor-to-ceiling windows that look out over an incredible view?  Paint the surrounding wall area around those windows a shade of the prominent colour seen outside.  For example, if you overlook a gorgeous green forest, paint the surrounding wall area a shade of green to help extend the space.  It will trick your eye into thinking you are right outside.

 

HIP TIPZ #145

If you have a very large room that looks and feels empty, give it more than one purpose by dividing the room into two separate functional areas.

As a guy, I didn't even know there was a spray for linen-scent.  Thanks for helping me sound more knowledgeable than I feel!

Great tips as usual Charlene!  I especially like #141, partly because I have always wanted a home with a loft.  : )
