NYC Real Estate Expert shares their top five ways to get your house ready for the hot spring market!
Whether you are getting ready to list your home, welcome guests for summer, or simply want to add a fresh feeling to your home, there are a few ways to easily make your home feel as new as the season. Go beyond spring-cleaning in the traditional sense and test your creativity and home improvement skills to have your home feeling as good as new with the following ideas.
1.Changing out Linens Throughout the Home: One of the easiest ways to freshen up your home is to bring in new linens. Think about the entire house, not just your bed linens. People often forget tea towels in the kitchen, bath towels, and guest rooms. Change out winter hues for tones of yellow, blue, and white to instantly lighten up a space.
2. Add colorful Accents to your Décor:Consider bringing in colorful accent for added interest. Items like patterned and vibrant throw pillows for the living room or your patio furniture and fresh flowers in the foyer and kitchen are easy and effective. These little details will have your home feeling like spring in no time.
3. Change Out your Fragrance: Switch out candles and diffusers for seasonal scents such as citrus and floral notes. It is easy to leave your favorite holiday spice candle out year-round; however, heavy scents are reminiscent of the fall and winter seasons. Some of my favorites include Corsica Classic by NEST and Cire Trudon Prolétaire.
4. Declutter:Take the opportunity to declutter while you are switching out and changing décor. This is very important if you are preparing to list your home, but it is also an easy way to make an existing space feel new and fresh again.
5. Exterior Magic: Do not forget to give some attention to your exterior! Cleanup gardens and flowerbeds with new mulch and pruning since nothing says spring like a garden in full bloom. If you are looking to make a bold statement, consider painting your entry door a new color to create a dynamic entrance. Imagine what a vibrant red could do for your curb appeal!
