If you’re planning to put your home on the market you obviously want it to look its best to impress homebuyers. If you’re going to stage it yourself, consider these three ways to zhuzh-up your house.
Use Accent Furniture
A simple and inexpensive way to elevate the look of your living spaces is to use accent furniture. These are pieces that contrast, but not clash, with other furnishings. For instance, in your living room consider a pair of club chairs, or something similar, that are upholstered in a pattern or fabric that’s different from the rest of your pieces. This helps make your furniture ensemble look curated and collected over time, instead of purchased as a set from a showroom floor. Elevating the look of your spaces can help sell a feeling and a lifestyle to potential buyers.
Enhance Stair Spindles
If the stairs inside your home have white wooden spindles, which are typical in many houses, they may not do much to set your interior apart from other residences. Enhancing your spindles can be a simple way to help your home stand out and be remembered by house hunters.
Consider swapping out the wooden spindles for ones made of wrought iron. It’s a timeless look that oozes with sophistication. If wrought iron is out of your budget you can mimic the look by painting the spindles a matte black. It’s a trick of the eye that can still make your stairs look more modern. (These looks can be complemented using interior neutrals like greys, beiges, and greige).
Upgrade Your Island Countertop
Your solid surface kitchen countertops are durable and serve you well. But you can upgrade them without breaking the bank by focusing your attention on the island. Outfitting it alone with a stone surface can be a cost-effective accent that allows you to splurge on a fancy finish, like Carrara marble, granite, or quartz. On a practical note, most islands are heavily used for meal prep, which makes a stone surface all the more reasonable. All eyes will be on your island and the elevated look of your kitchen.
