4 Tips to Make your Home more Inviting

For years, builders have used Model Homes for one important reason - they help buyers fall in love with a house. And today, sellers hire stagers and designers for the same reason.
Phyllis Ryan, of Interior Concepts, a design firm that specializes in furnishing new homes, offers these tips that might benefit anyone who is selling a home.

  1. A stylish kitchen appeals to many buyers. If a sellers has upgraded cabinets and granite countertops, that’s good. If they don’t, it may help to display some stylish touches like an espresso machine, a retro toaster or just some luscious fruit.
  2. Lots of light makes spaces feel larger. Turn on all the lights even during the day and add a few extra lights if necessary.
  3. The master bedroom should seduce a buyer. Play soft jazz, pile the bed high with a cushy comforter and pillows. Stack plush towels in the bathroom.
  4. Add drama to a bottleneck or a dead end space. Prop an oversize mirror against the wall. It visually ops a space and adds drama.
