Small details in a house can make a HUGE difference in how the house is perceived by buyers. If your house is in pretty good shape but you still want a more polished look, consider replacing the outdated light fixtures, faucets, and window treatments.
Take a look at the example below:
The room in the photo shown above has out-dated light fixture and old-style window treatments. Even though the hardwood floors were in excellent condition and the large windows have an amazing view to the back yard, the house felt like it was stuck in the 1980's.
After an in-home staging consultation for selling a home
, the home owners changed the light fixture and updated the window treatments. The result was an immediate leap from the '80's into the 21st Century! See below:
Updating a few key elements allowed buyers to appreciate the features of the home. The elegant window treatments now frames the amazing view, while the new light fixture emphasizes the current style of the home.
Although these changes seem insignificant, it clearly made a big impact in updating the style of the home!
