OPEN THEIR EYES
You know what? Size does matter! You want buyers to soak up every square foot of your home, visualizing how their belongings will fit in. Follow these recommendations to maximize the space they perceive, particularly if you are selling a smaller home.
After furniture, the next biggest impact is your walls. Since dark colors absorb light and make even large rooms look smaller, invest in some light paint (think creams, light blues or greens, soft yellows) to open your room’s space.
Another great “trick” is to simply hang some mirrors. Mirrors do double duty in expanding the space. Seeing a reflection of the room gives the impression of more space in “another” room, while mirrors also reflect light, and a brighter room feels like a bigger room.
These are simple suggestions to implement, and a real estate professional will have even more advice for creating an appealing interior.
