Outdoor living is very trendy. By creating a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living spaces, you not only increase the value of a home but you also create the illusion of extra square footage. With the warmer season upon us, now is the time to take advantage of the outdoor lifestyle you can portray to sell your home.
Carry through the flow from the interior by bringing in the same colors and furniture styling to your outdoor living area. Our favorite technique is to use cushions and flowers outdoors that are similar to the colors in the main floor of the home. This helps create an undisturbed transition and really creates the illusion of extra square footage.
As you would inside your home prior to taking photos and showings, sweep floors, fluff pillows, and wipe down furniture. Use a pressure washer to remove mold and mildew from surfaces if necessary.
In larger yards, define your outdoor space. Create an inviting eating area with a full outdoor dining set where potential buyers can envision hosting dinners. Add a small conversation area with an outdoor sofa or loveseat and chairs for that intimate outdoor lifestyle.
Whether you are selling a large home with a spacious yard or a condo with a small balcony, do not miss out on adding financial value to your home by staging these outdoor spaces properly. – Text by Julie O, www.luxfurniturerentals.com
