MY MAGIC HOME STAGING DUO….Paint and Light
When dealing with small spaces, you can make the room feel bigger by painting it the same color as adjacent rooms. This works well with kitchens that are adjacent to family rooms. Sunrooms can be painted green, tying it to the outdoors!
Lighting is critical! A well lit room will change the buyers perception of a space.
Have a spare room in your house? Why not create a man cave. They are popping up everywhere. A man cave, or “mantuary”, is a masculine space that is great for relaxing and getting away from everyday life. The space usually holds a very large TV, oversized chairs and often a refrigerator, game tables, and musical instruments. Textiles that are unique to the man cave are leather, flannel corduroy, usually in black, charcoal, brown or gray. Think dark and inviting, a space that hides the dirt. My brother has a man cave barn. Think outside the box and make a man happy!
