Â Â 1. Â Create a Balanced SpaceÂ -To make a room appear bigger, paint it the same color as the adjacent room. If you have a small kitchen and dining room, a seamless look will make both rooms feel like one big space. Â
2.Â Â Â 2.Don't Overcrowd RoomsÂ - Don't overcrowd a room with furniture that is too large for the space; it will only make the room appear small and cramped. However, don't leave a room too barren either. In a narrow space, shelves can add depth to make a room feel larger.
3.Â Â Â 3.Upgrade With Eco-Friendly MaterialsÂ -Use eco-friendly materials when upgrading your home for sale. Buyers are willing to pay more for a home that is considered green. If you're on a budget, consider cork flooring. It's extremely durable and costs about half the price of traditional hardwood flooring.
4.Â Â 4. Â Create Serene BedroomsÂ - Create a relaxing setting with luxurious linens and soft colors that will make a potential homebuyer want to sit back and relax.
5.Â Â 5.Â Update With PaintÂ - If your doors and casing look old and outdated, give them a fresh coat of sparkling white paint. It will make your whole house look cleaner and more contemporary.
6.Â Â 6. Â Invest in Contemporary AppliancesÂ - If your kitchen appliances are outdated, invest in a new cooktop, stove or refrigerator. Studies show that sellers recoup every penny they spend on appliances.
7.Â Â Â 7.Update Outdated BathroomsÂ - Consider having tacky, outdated bathroom tile re-glazed. It costs much less than replacements and can make your bathroom look brand new. Tip: To remove mold from grout, try a simple solution of bleach and water. If that doesn't work, try staining the grout.
