Cast Light on Your Home
When presenting your home for sale you'll want to show it in the best light, both figuratively and literally. With the sun going down early at this time of year, it’s important to find ways to brighten up the inside of your home, not only to create a warm welcome for buyers, but also to showcase every corner of your home and let them know you have nothing to hide!
Start by testing all your lights and replacing any burned out light bulbs with new, bright ones, while also switching out any old, dark lampshades for white replacements. Before a potential buyer arrives at your home, ensure all your overhead lights and lamps are switched on and that every corner is illuminated; move floor lamps to dark areas as necessary.
If your walls need painting, consider a fresh, white option. In addition to instantly brightening up a dark room, a white or off-white paint creates a neutral canvas for potential homebuyers to envision themselves personalizing for their own needs. White is also right when it comes to freshening up your bathroom and bedroom. In the bathroom, invest in a white shower curtain, plush white towels and some white countertop accessories. In the bedroom, a fluffy white duvet with corresponding pillow shams can go far in creating an alluring presentation.
Maximize natural light in every room by removing curtains and opening blinds all the way — just be sure your windows are sparkling clean, both inside and out! When removing your personal artwork and family photographs from the walls for staging purposes, consider replacing some with large mirrors, to reflect both indoor and outdoor light.
