Prepping Your Home To Sell This Season

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  Make Your Floors Fabulous Again The floors in our homes take a serious beating, and if yours look worn or outdated, it will likely have an effect on the salability of your home.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.     
Three Flooring Alternatives For Your Bathrooms

Three Flooring Alternatives For Your Bathrooms

Bathrooms can be a flooring challenge. You may want a bathroom floor that is beautiful and comfortable to walk on with bare feet, but you’ll also want a floor that’s easy to clean and can resist damage. There is one guarantee for all bathroom floors: they will get wet. For this reason, many people have rejected the idea of putting carpeting in bathrooms. There’s nothing worse than a soggy, mildewed carpet. Laminate flooring is always an excellent choice for bathroom floors and should be on your list to consider, but here are three floor types that you may not be thinking of that can give you a beautiful and durable bathroom floor.  Tile is an old standby for bathroom floors, but it can be cold and hard on bare feet. Never fear! You can have easy to clean tile floors that are also toasty warm. All you have to do is add “Radiant Heating.” Radiant heating is installed under your new flooring, including tile, wood flooring, and laminate floors. You can then set the temperature to “just right” for you and your family or turn it off when you don’t need it. Radiant heating is a great choice for bathrooms. And don’t worry about spills and water—it’s under the floor and will stay dry! Wood floors can be very attractive in bathrooms, but wood flooring can react badly to the wetness and humidity of bathrooms. If you want the look of hardwood floors in a bathroom, consider engineered wood floors. Engineered wood floors will give you the warmth and inviting look of hardwood floors but can be much more resistant to water and the high humidity of bathrooms.  Bamboo is an excellent choice for bathrooms. Bamboo is a durable wood product that is also highly rated as a green or sustainable flooring product. Bamboo floors do well with spills and humidity and properly maintained can give you a lifetime of service and beauty.  There are no restrictions about what you can use for bathroom flooring. Make a trip to your local Rite Rug flooring retailer and take a look at the options available to you, including tile, wood, and bamboo flooring.
