Perhaps the mostÂ obvious brightening technique is putting fresh coat of paint
onÂ interior walls and woodwork.Â This isÂ very inexpensive and will give your home
a big boast. Even if your budget doesn't call for furniture buying at this time
it is better to stage room with bright pillows and accents rather than leaving
itÂ vacant. Buyers need to visualize how their furniture would work and empty
won't don't it.
If your artwork is limited use your flat screen TV as a silent slide show of
nature's images without photos of people for the great room. Think of the flat
screen TV as modern day hearth and keep it out of the bedroom and it can
function as art. Also it is better to have mirrors or photos to fill a wall
rather than leaving dead space.
Yards should be maintained and grass cut nicely. It doesn't have to be
elaborate but pots of flowers next to the door offer welcoming affect. On the
interior a fresh bunch of flowers in simple glass vase is so condusive to warmth
and charm however, please remove any fake plants as they spell graveyard
Window treatments inside can be simple with rod and solid drapery to avoid
sterile feeling. If you have a library in your home or just some rows of books,
it is better to remove the jackets and expose the solid color for personal
touch. The bedrooms should be non gender related but keep them fresh with simple
white bedding look of down or such rich fabric choice. Everything should be
neutral shades not too dark or bold.
Above all the things listed here de-clutter is the key. This will make your
rooms appear larger and brighter. Please room things from kitchen counters and
tidy the pantry closet.Â
