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.
