Ask any real estate agent, and they will tell you that Spring and Summer are considered the “hot” seasons to sell your home. This should come as no surprise, as most families want to purchase and be settled in time for the new school year. 

If you're getting ready to sell this season, it’s a smart idea to make some small improvements that can greatly improve the salability of your home. For the most part, improvements need only to be simple and inexpensive — but buyers will undoubtedly notice the difference! 

Clean Things Up 

It may seem obvious, but dust and dirt can be a real turnoff to prospective buyers who are looking for their “new" dream home. To make a great impression, consider having your flooring and window treatments professionally cleaned to freshen up the space. 

You should also take some extra time to de-clutter. Not only will this help with the sale, but it will also help with your move! Clear old clothing from your closet rods and show off some floor space. Also, don’t forget to tidy your pantry and kitchen cabinets. 

Give Your Bath a Bath 

Everyone loves a beautiful, serene and clean bathroom. But even if yours is less than updated, there are some small fixes you can do for big impact with buyers. 

If your toilet seat cover is old and discolored, replace it with a new one (it's inexpensive and very easy). Change out your shower liner and curtain for something new and neutral. And for a really big impact, have your tub recaulked — it won’t go unnoticed.

Let The Sun Shine In 

There's nothing like great natural lighting, so be sure to keep draperies light and airy, and of course — open! Replace any missing or dim light bulbs, and try to avoid unflattering florescent lighting whenever possible. 

Do Some Touch-Ups 

You might love your green bedroom, but it's safe to say not all buyers will feel the same. Give your home a fresh coat of paint in a neutral grey or beige. There's nothing quite like it to easily revamp a room — and luckily it's extremely affordable. 

There are many other small 'touch-ups' you can do around the home that are easy and inexpensive. Consider changing out dated hardware on cabinets, and tossing those decade-old vertical blinds. You'd be surprised how much impact a brand new clean doormat can make! 

Make Your Floors Fabulous Again

The floors in our homes take a serious beating, and if yours look worn or outdated, it will likely have an effect on the salability of your home. If you're opting for an update, it's always smart to keep new flooring neutral so that it will appeal to a wide range of buyers. Also, it's a great idea to consult with your realtor to determine what type of flooring is most desirable in your neighborhood.

Rugs have the ability to anchor a space, provide dimension and add that much needed pop of color to an otherwise neutral room. So the question is, what do you do if your space has wall-to-wall carpeting?

It seems like this is an ever-present question when it comes to design, but our experts believe that when done right, area rugs placed over carpet have the potential to create a super sophisticated aesthetic. Check out these helpful tips on navigating your design plan...

 

Play With Texture

When layering, consider varying textures. A plush and patterned accent rug atop a more traditional neutral carpet will create an intriguing focal point. The rug can create and define living spaces, all the while adding an interesting flair to the room. Alternatively, a more neutral area rug is a great way to break up an already boldly patterned carpet.

 

Pop Some Color

The right area rug can provide your space with a dose of color or exciting design element, however it’s important to remember that your wall-to-wall carpeting is still there too. Try to select a rug that complements and does not combat your existing carpeting color for a more harmonious design.

 

Shape It Up

Area rugs that vary in shape can work wonders in tricking the eye. Small room, big room, or awkwardly configured — evaluate your space and play with shapes to change the overall ambiance. Round rugs and animal shaped rugs can really change the feel of an otherwise boxy and boring carpeted room.

 

Keep Things In Place

One worry about area rugs is that they will shift or wrinkle atop existing carpeting. Luckily, rug-on-carpet pads are made specifically for this reason. An easy and quick solution, this really is no worry at all.
