Last week I talked about the importance of colour to update a home prior to sale . It’s also important once that new paint job is completed that you change any light fixtures that have yellowed or were painted the same colour as the old wall color or any cutesy theme switch covers, including ones that may have been wallpapered to match the old décor. My feelings is choose something simple and plain and cohesive for the home. Timeless and classic is definitely the way to go! This statement is a basis for so many of my designs!
This month’s tip for a budget friendly update is changing old worn out flooring. There are so many types of flooring on the market and if you keep an eye on your local flyers I’m sure you will find something that’s budget friendly.
A few readily available options including some pro’s and con’s are as follows :
Many of these floors can be installed in a weekend by someone who is handy, but the same goes for the paint option if you are NOT handy hire a professional! Flooring definitely makes a big impact when selling your home . I had a home staging client that instead of removing the old worn parquet flooring we put new laminate flooring on top. Voila! looked gorgeous and almost matched the rest of this home ‘s hardwood flooring , thereby reducing the investment the homeowner made prior to sale.
And now the best part the pictures!
Check back for next week’s tip # 3, my favorite kitchen’s!
