Reality check: If the decor/artwork in your bathroom is from the early ’90s, it is nearly 30 years behind the times! (And if you redecorated your bathroom in 2010, that’s almost a decade ago.
Choosing the best realtor isn’t the only challenge you’ll face when putting your home on the market. Making sure your home is in top condition is vital when it comes to enticing potential buyers. One way to make sure your home is both modern and updated is to incorporate stylish colors into the design. Why not try using Pantone’s color of the year, Living Coral? Redecorating with this fresh color will show realtors and potential buyers that your home is more modern than others on the market. Check out these ways to incorporate the Pantone color of the year into your home:
This warm but subtle hue will showcase your home and make it stand apart from others in your price range. Add instant curb appeal to your home by painting your front door in Living Coral. It will help to brighten the entrance of your home and help potential buyers easily identify your house during a long day of showings. If Living Coral doesn’t match well with your existing exterior color, consider adding in touches of it by hanging a coral colored wreath or even adding a new welcome mat to the front entrance.
Using fabrics to convey a new color in the home is an excellent way to add a punch of color to any space. Consider adding a few coral colored pillows to the couch and easy-chair. Rugs are a great way to anchor a room and can instantly upgrade the look of an area. Other options include hanging curtains on bare windows that need some extra touches of color. Remember you don’t need to choose fabrics that are a solid coral color. Instead, select fabrics with hints of coral to create a cohesive feel throughout the house.
Placing fresh plants inside your home is a great way to brighten a space and create a focal point instantly. Consider adding coral-toned plants to your home as an easy way to add the Pantone color to your front or backyard. Choose from a wide variety of coral-hued plants, including ‘Salmon Beauty’ yarrow or ‘Coral Sunset’ Peonies. Cuts of ‘Coral Wings’ rhododendron would look quite stunning in a large vase in the kitchen. For those smaller areas of the home, consider using more delicate coral flowers like ‘Bishop’s Children’ dahlias that offer pure single blooms.
Many homeowners are looking for modern rooms with a monochrome color scheme. However, this doesn’t mean that everything in your home needs to be black and white. Placing certain accents pieces in the color of the year around will help to warm up the area and draw attention to certain features. Place a few side accent chairs near the fireplace to create a cozy and defined living space. Other options include placing a coral colored rug in a guest bedroom to help accentuate the fact that the home has extra space.
SPRUCED UP ACCESSORIES
One of the main parts of staging your home for sale is to take down family photos and personal items that potential buyers won’t be able to relate to. Replacing these items with coral colored decorations will help tie together the Living Coral theme as well as create a more approachable look. Consider hanging a coral colored mirror where a photo used to hang or even add some decorative pieces of art to create a focal point on the wall. Doing so will help to hide the fact that something is missing and is an easy way to incorporate the new color scheme.
Potential home buyers will appreciate your care for your home if you show you have kept it updated. Choose to sprinkle the color throughout your home to create a professional yet comfortable look. You may end of getting a lot more than the asking price.
