If you are a homeowner and are looking for a change, one of your first thoughts may be to move and sell your home. One of the first things that you should do is sit down and look at your home and figure out what it needs to improve the look and feel. Whether you decide to sell or stay, you will ultimately have to do something to improve it’s current look. There are several things that you should consider before making the big step to move.
Taking time to consult with a Realtor that specializes in your area and looking at homes that are on the market is a good idea. This will allow you to see what your neighbors or nearby communities are selling their homes for. It also gives you ideas on what potential buyers will be seeing if you decide to sell your home.
It is not an easy decision to sell your home, so I always suggest to clients, let’s see what we can do to improve your home. Removing clutter and organizing things is one of the simplest and easiest places to start. Having things in proper place and neatly organized is a perfect way to make a difference in the look and feel of your home.
Look at your walls in your home. What does the paint color say about the rooms? Do you feel inspired while walking through your home? A painting remodel project is another simple way to greatly transform your home immediately without a lot of effort. If you have outdated colors on the walls or outdated accent colors in the home, it is a good time to consider changing the paint colors to more modern contemporary colors. Also consider using the same color throughout the home to make the place feel larger. Check out new colors from Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams or Behr Paints to get an inspiration of new color trends. You may want to have a color consultation in your home with a color specialist to help you identify a color palette that will go nicely with your home and current furnishings.
The next place to consider making improvements is in your kitchen. The kitchen is typically the heart of the home. A kitchen remodel project can make a world of difference in your home. You may need to open a wall to give the area a more open concept and to make the kitchen feel more inviting. You may want to do a kitchen countertop and new undermount sink to freshen up the kitchen area. New kitchen lighting will make a big impact in the kitchen. If you have an old outdated dome plastic ceiling with fluorescent lights, consider making a ceiling with a soffit and recessed lights instead.
