What would a key area be? Think about where you hang out the most. The first place to start would be the living room. Check your lighting. This is an easy fix and can have a big impact on the overall feel of the room. Just by updating your lamps to some that have a cozy feel can make a huge difference. Also, check your art. Don’t overdo it here but adding some pieces that are calm and comforting is a great way to add a relaxing theme throughout your home.
Next, check your bathrooms. Make sure they are fresh, clean, and always smell good. Consider adding a rain shower or a new tub to better entice those eager home buyers when you do get ready to sell.
For a bigger investment, replacing counters by adding quartz or granite are practical, useful choices that will go the distance.
Flooring is a big deal.
Most people look at the flooring of a home before anything else. Think about it: how many times do you always look at the floor?! Replace the flooring in the most common areas such as the kitchen, bathroom, and hallways. If you have pets, make sure you choose the appropriate flooring. Another great tip is to choose neutral colors. Something that is extreme will not be pleasing to everyone but by keeping it neutral, this gives the freedom to have different furniture pieces or accessories depending on what is trending.
Be energy efficient.
More and more people like to see energy efficiency. It lowers the cost of utility bills and everyone likes lowering those. Some of these changes can result in a larger initial investment, but the sooner you make it happen, the sooner you start seeing those cheaper bills come your way. Anything from new appliances to smart home tech can do the job for you.
Make sure you have quality furniture.
Obviously, the furniture doesn’t stay with the home but having quality furniture is like staging your home the right way. Most people don’t think about the area without the furniture in it because they are focusing on what the room looks like with everything currently in it. It gives the buyer an idea of how much furniture can fit into a space and what a potential setup might be. Cheaper furniture may take away from the way the room is built by making it look smaller or even run-down. Plus, it is always good to buy quality furniture as it allows you to buy furniture less often!
Remember these four tips when you are thinking about updating your home. Not only will they make you feel better about your investments, they will also help your home stand out from the rest!
