3 Steps To Get Started On Home Upgrades
Spring is just around the corner and you might be feeling the need to renovate and upgrade your house. Remember to keep your Realtor in mind, they have connections you can benefit from. Whether you need a painter, carpenter, contractor or stager, we can give you a referral.
HERE ARE 3 STEPS TO GET YOU STARTED
Choose a paint color:
Fresh paint can make a world of difference. Find out what kind of mood you want to set with your color choice. Narrow down your selection to three or four colors and paint a small spot in different areas of the room. Also visit the space at different times of the day. This will give you a better idea of how the color will look. Some paint companies even announce a “Color of the Year” that you can use as a reference.
Make a design plan:
This is one of Pinterest’s biggest draws. Here, you can window shop to your heart’s delight. Take the ideas you see and sketch a plan to fit your space. If you have a friend with a flair for design, run it by them too.
Do some editing:
The idea of editing in home design says to start with a clean slate. Then, only add things to a room that make sense to how you want to use the space. You can also take a picture of the space with your current design and “edit” the picture. In other words, remove the items that don’t match or make sense. Keep in mind, you can also paint items you really want to keep, so that it fits the space.
If you are planning on selling your house a stager can help you sell much faster. We work with stagers for every listing we have. It is a win-win for everyone.
Get multiple estimates:
Remember the vendor will work for you. Do not be afraid to ask questions and follow up on referrals. Ask about product warranties or liability policies. Be comfortable with the research you have done.
