New flooring, fresh paint and clean linens are hallmarks of a home that’s taken care of by its owner. These major components are also complemented by the finer details. Don’t overlook these aspects of the home because they can make a difference during a sale. Explore these features that deserve some attention.
The transitions between the ceiling and walls may not be perfect. Most homes don’t have exact, 90-degree angles in these areas. The paint transitions may not be straight either. Crown molding fixes all of these issues. Add it in at the ceiling-to-wall transitions as a pure-white feature. Potential buyers will marvel at the detail.
You may have added tile to your kitchen or bathrooms, but it’s incomplete without trim. Add anodized aluminum to the tiles’ edges. Buy the aluminum from a home-improvement store, or consider using an anodizing tank if you’re a DIYer.
This trim gives the tile a neat-and-tidy appearance. It might look jagged or messy otherwise. The trim merely covers any aberrations along the tiles’ edges.
If you’re laying tile as your new flooring, think about a herringbone layout. You lay the tiles at an angle, which gives it more pizzazz than a standard installation. The layout makes the floor look larger with more interest for anyone who walks in. Consider a professional’s help with herringbone installations, however. There’s often a lot of cutting involved.
You may have added new windows to the home, but think about the trim. Many homes have wood accents that surround the frame. The wood or paint might be in need of an update. Repair this area as needed because it makes a huge difference when it comes to curb appeal.
No property will be a perfect space. There will always be flaws. Try to clean the home and upgrade what you can before an open house. Some buyers prefer some anomalies so that they can put their own touch on the home. A sale will occur in time.
