One of the goals to preparing a house for sale is to highlight the features in your home, such as a fireplace, granite counter tops, bay windows, or a jet tub. Placing decor by these areas can help draw the eye so buyers will remember the features.
Home owners do not need to run to the nearest home decor store and spend hundreds of dollars to make their home look great; they can shop for decor in their very own house. I don't mean online shopping, either. Using accessories from other rooms in a new and interesting way can give focal points the emphasis that it needs.
This photo to the left shows a jet tub with no accessories. Although nice, there is nothing memorable about this area. The lack of decor leaves this area feeling cold and uninviting.
Buyers who may view several house in one day may not remember anything special about this master bathroom.
This photo to the right displays a pedestal and vase with flowers taken from the living room. This decorative feature helps to emphasize the elegance of this space. The height of the arrangement brings drama into this master bathroom. Rolled towels on the opposite corner softens the room while bringing a spa-like feel.
The total cost of decorating this space was $0.00!
So whether you are selling a home
or just want a new look for your space, using items from around your home can help you achieve an updated look without spending a lot of money!
