5 Design Tips to Sell Your Home

Posted On:May 17, 2016 by Rachael in Design Tips


Let’s face it — the way you decorate your house for showings makes a huge difference for potential buyers. Here are a few design tips to make a picture perfect home:

  1. Fake the height of a room by incorporating low furniture. Using lower profile furniture with fewer horizontal elements (arm rests, for example) will accentuate the distance between the furniture and the ceiling.
  2. To make a room appear bigger, paint it the same color as the adjacent room.
  3. Warm up a room with mirrors. Use a large mirror and make sure it’s at least 3/4 of the wall length. Another trick is to place a mirror facing a window to make it look like there are more windows.
  4. Reposition sofas/chairs into cozy conversational groups to make the house feel welcome for guests.
  5. Increase wattage of lamps and fixtures (total of 10 watts for each 50 ft) to brighten your home.
