When you’ve made the decision to sell your home, it’s important to take a fresh look at every single room. Often potential buyers have a difficult time looking past your color and decorating choices.Here are some tips to help you put your best foot forward:1. Avoid placing large pieces of furniture across the corner of a room. Instead, try angling these pieces. Angling large furniture will help your room appear to have more visual movement, and will also give a potential buyer the idea that your room might be a bit larger and easier for them to work with when placing their own furniture.2. If your home features a vaulted wall, it is wisest for you to place large pieces of furniture close to the highest wall. Again, you’re calling attention to the wall’s architectural interest and helping to create balance in your room.3. Remember this rule of thumb: Less is more. Especially if your home features smaller rooms, an under-furnished room is always preferable to an over-furnished room.4. Add a simple spark of visual interest by changing your lampshades. This quick fix can give any room an updated appearance – especially if your current lampshades feature plain, ivory shades. Replacing them with a modern shape, or sleek, dramatic black, or even textured shades can enliven the room.5. Need to give the illusion of more space? Then consider purchasing a large wall mirror. They bounce light around the room and create some sparkle. Just be sure to take special care in placing your mirror so that you can be sure it reflects a pleasing sight.6. Add some texture. Throws, pillows and even rugs can create a warm, cozy feel in any room.7. Let there be light. Be sure your window treatments are in the open position, flooding as much light as you can into each and every room in your home.8. Add some permanent florals and greenery. Don’t go overboard, but adding a high-quality tree in a bare corner, or carefully placing grasses or succulent arrangements can help to bring the outdoors in.9. Don’t go crazy with color. When selling a home, neutral shades are typically the best. It’s difficult for buyers to see beyond the colors they see when they enter a room. Repainting your rooms in neutral shades might make all the difference between a sale or no sale.10. Re-accessorize. Your cherished mementos—while precious to you—might actually create a barrier in the mind of a buyer. Think about simple accessory plans, with lots less clutter.Above all, when preparing your home for sale, remember that potential buyers like to be able to envision their possessions in your house. They like it to look neat and clean, almost like a model home. If necessary, rent a storage space to store items that you feel currently clutter your home.And if you get stuck, a professional decorator can give you advice on where to begin.
