A lot of people are looking for coastal homes, especially in North Carolina. They love the laidback lifestyle and that is why the locals love the area and visitors can’t wait for their next visit. If you are considering of selling you home, you should consider hiring a decorator to stage the home. Below are some of the tips that will make the house more appealing to home buyers.
The house must be inspired by nature. That means painting the walls in neutrals such as blues, tans, and light coral. You should avoid dark and intense colors. The house must give a sense of calm and relaxation.
- In order to make the room look bigger, paint the trim along the doorway molding, baseboards and other accents white. Not only will it make it bigger, it would lighten the room as well.
- Paint the wood paneling white or a pastel shade such as yellow or blue. It makes the paneling more sophisticated. This is a cheap way to update the look of a room.
- When decorating the room, use the items you pick up from the beach. Bring the beauty of the coast into the home by using shells, sand dollars, coral and other things you can pick up as design accents.
- You can also use marine and nautical decorations such as anchors, life rings, oars, and ship wheels. You can also use horizontal navy and white stripes, porthole mirrors, or nautical stars as accents as well.
You must not go overboard with the coastal designs. Don’t make every item inside the home about the beach. Avoid making your home tacky that will drive away potential buyers.
And just like any other home staging, remove personal clutter from the home. You should make it as clean as possible and remove personal items, such as portraits.
