Decorations have an impact on how potential buyers of the house perceive it. A well-decorated home gains value in the market compared to an undecorated one. While decorating a house before selling, which is called staging, can incur costs, it will fetch better returns for the seller in the end.
A comprehensive plan for home staging is needed to make it a worthwhile undertaking. Service providers like Advantage Property Styling have the professional experience to carry it out efficiently.
For The Ultimate Stage Decoration
Any venture will need planning to make it a successful one. Home staging, with its myriad of components, is no different. You will need the help of professional staging service providers to generate an appropriate plan. They will consider your input and their expertise to come up with the best possible solution.
Four months ago, we had the interior of our home painted. When they painted, they did our master bedroom a lovely shade of blue. A blue that I chose myself. Because the room’s color scheme was blues, white and yellows.
Except the blue came out…different…that I thought it would. It’s not BAD, but it’s quite a bit more…vibrant…than I was planning on.
This has created a project for me: a complete redo of our master bedroom. (You can stop laughing now.) Thankfully the furniture has been ordered, and the bedding, as well, but NOW it’s the actual decor I’ll be working on. Since I’m transforming MY space, I thought today might be a good day to chat about that!
When seeking inspiration for your bedroom, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a style that’s more timeless than modernism.
A modern bedroom can be many things. It’s sleek and trendy, minimalist and effortless, and luxurious and elegant. In the context of design, modernism is primarily characterized by clean lines and shapes, functionality, and a polished aesthetic. But the trick to creating the modern bedroom of your dreams is simple enough — just incorporate the elements that resonate with you.
From ensuring you have the best memory foam mattress in place to repurposing furniture, these five modern bedroom ideas will inspire you to create a space that transcends time.
1. Create an Accent Wall
The walls say it all. The best way to add a personal touch to your modern bedroom is with an accent wall. You can paint one wall in your bedroom a different color, apply a patterned wallpaper, or even venture outside your comfort zone and add an exposed brick wall.
When thinking about freshening homes, people often think about touching up the paint or adding new wallpaper, maybe even some modern furniture. Doors don’t require upgrading as often, so they’re forgotten about. High quality doors are built to last years, however, they experience a battering of daily usage. When a complete refurbishment is needed to turn a home from drab and dated to modern luxury, internal doors should be one of the first things considered. An simple option such as internal glazed doors will last through years of interior design fads while still looking great and creating a positive atmosphere.
Doors take up a lot of space in the home, even small homes. Yet they don’t seem to take up much space at all. This is due to their function. They serve a purpose that the pictures hanging on the walls don’t. They separate rooms. With that much space taken up by doors, they can most definitely add luxury when the right doors are selected.
All internal doors need to match to avoid creating a chaotic atmosphere. That doesn’t mean they need to be the exact same door. If glazed doors are desired for all rooms except the bathroom and storage cupboard, it is still possible to match. Simply find glazed doors that have matching panelling.
Typically I love me some good ol’ painting projects. Last month I decided to paint the girls’ room. No biggie, right? Seemed fairly simple. Except I had to work around everyone else’s schedule and ended up only being able to actually paint for about an hour a day. A week and a half later, I finally had a bedroom room with freshly painted walls. (Don’t ask me about the trim and doors – it’s still not done). At that point, my plan of repainting our home by “just painting one room at a time” went down the drain, and a call was placed to my friends who own a painting company. They’re on the schedule to come out and finish the rest of the house next week! Because painting is IMPORTANT, and it turns out…I HATE PAINTING.
So when Daniel from PaintAccess Painting Guides contacted me and asked if I was interested in his article on various painting projects to keep your home bright, I definitely was – especially because I may add his suggestions to the list for my painter friends! Let’s see what he thinks…
When it comes to adding value to your home with painting projects, one of the rules of thumb to follow is that brighter is better. This doesn’t necessarily mean buyers are going to be attracted to a lime green dining room, but a nice, illuminated area does wonders for a space.
There is nothing quite like the joy of a meal that turns out just like you wanted it to. If you love to cook, the kitchen is your happy place. Cooking up a storm gives you calm, relaxation and gratification.
Your affinity for the kitchen could easily become a stressful experience, though. Over time, appliances start to get dated, faucets get faulty and the space becomes less pleasant to cook in. Factors such as advancement in age or having children in the home can also make the space no longer suited to your needs.
All is not lost, there are affordable changes you can make to salvage your kitchen without having to tear it apart. Read on.
