9 Tips to Make Your Home Appear More Expensive

CHRISTINA STEVENSON

Interior designers have great ideas to make your home look more expensive, while real estate professionals know how to make your home more appealing to homebuyers. You can take advantage of both worlds of experience to sell your home faster and for more money.

The best interior designs reflect the beauty and character of the home’s origins, whether you have a Tudor, Cape Cod, or contemporary home. Your interior design should be cohesive, intentional, and well edited from room to room. It may take some remodeling to both the exterior and interior to get the tasteful results you want, but it’s well worth it. 

To make your home look more expensive and appealing to homebuyers, consider the following:

·         Conceal all wiring and cables in boxes, inside walls, and in crown moldings, wainscotting, and shoe moldings.

·         Mix in elements like metal, ceramics, wood, and fabric to make each room’s décor more appealing.

·         Hang drapes from the ceiling for an elegant, elongated look.

·         Neutral décor in beige, white or gray is ideal, but to keep it interesting, add a lot of texture through rugs, fluffy bedding, pillows, and upholstery. 

·         Fine oil paintings and area rugs help provide focus points as well as pops of color. But take them with you on moving day!

·         Update the electrical panel, increase the outlets, and upgrade switch plates.

·         Replace carpet with hardwood floors, or affordable engineered wood. 

·         Arrange a vase of fresh flowers in the living area.

·         Use apps for picture, light fixture, rug and drape placements.
