I remember as a realtor going through homes on Monday morning realtors tour of new listings and in this one particular home the carpets were covered with a clear plastic sheet, supposedly to keep them clean, but when you walked on the plastic you could feel a layer of oil, like cooking oil, on your feet afterwards. I could not wait to get home and wash my feet.
There is also nothing worse than the smell of spices from last nights dinner drifting through the house either, so be careful of using strong smelling cooking ingredients during the time your home is listed for sale. The smell of home baked bread, cookies or cake is always great but can also be looked at as trying to cover other smells so I personally do not think that is a great idea either. Also, the use of fragrant candles is not a good idea as again it can be and has been used to cover odours and may be seen as just that.
Picking art for any living space can be a complicated task for anyone. There is no right or wrong for individual taste. I personally like my rooms to tell a story and I find that Triptych Photographic wall art does this easily and affordably.
Colors are an important part of any decor. The most popular colors for Christmas are green, white, red, gold and silver. Pastel colors can be added to achieve a softer feel. Light purples, blues and greens give off the feeling of calm, piece and love. Think about the colors that give off the right feeling.
Paintings are elegant and colorful and if they are original works, they can be very valuable and expensive. A professional work of art such as a painting might make for a great conversation piece in a dinning room or living room and be thought-provoking for your guests as well. Then there is the task of picking out frames for your art work. This task is almost as important as picking out the piece of art itself. Picking the wrong frame can make the art piece over powering or underwhelming and throw the entire room off completely. Lets face it, picking out artwork for a living room, formal space, or any room in your home is not easy and it can make or break the whole experience of the room.
