Another reason why you should keep your place clutter free is if you want to sell your Home:
Your home is your most expensive investment. I am sure that you would like to get top dollars from a buyer. A few small changes can make that investment pay off real well. However, you must be realistic. A real estate broker can help you meet that goal if you make needed changes in your home. A dated home and décor will not sell well. A buyer is not interested in your personal things. They are coming to your home to see how that space will work for them and their family. Therefore, my first hack to you, declutter all your personal stuff. For this and tons of great advise about how to organize your home to make it look as though it was stage by a pro, talk to your real estate agent. Today, however, we are going to focus on your living room:
The Living Room:
This is the first room that you, your friends and everyone see when they come to your home. First impressions are important. Make an effort to keep this room looking clutter free and current.
To accomplish a nice look, you can update a dated living room by RELOCATING the room furniture completely or partially and by reducing the number of pieces not needed to give the room a spacious look.
Paint, paint, paint in neutral colors. If you want to go bold just do an accent wall.
Think neutral furnishings, beige, whites, chocolate, etc. Then use pop colors in your accessories. For example, if your sofa cushions are in print designs, get some inexpensive color only pillows. You can get them at stores like Ikea, Target or even Walmart. On the contrary, if your furniture cushions are colored only, no designs, then get decorative pillows with simple designs that are current, such as chevron or geometrics.
Finally, do not forget the flooring and window treatment.
You will be surprise how new and fresh everything will look in that room.
