Trying to showcase the potential your home has to offer? Pay attention to the small details to create an inviting and warm ambiance for potential buyers. First impressions matter! Most home buyers get a gut feeling from the moment they enter a home, so keep this in mind when preparing your home for selling.

Create the best possible light in living spaces by gently diffusing the light. Certain products, such as wood shutters, roller shades, dual shades, and blinds, can offer you this light filtering effect. For sleeping areas, provide room darkening window treatments, such as shutters, blackout window coverings, cellular shades, roller shades, and roman shades.

Sheer shades, sometimes referred to as visage blinds or wood shutters, also work well to diffuse light. They are made up of two layers of soft fabric connected by horizontal sheer vanes that gently filter sunlight, while maintaining various levels of privacy and UV protection as the blind is raised or lowered.

The blind can be raised to give an outside view, or lowered with the sheer vanes aligned to control the light and retain a view with some privacy during the day, or fully closed for total privacy in the evening.

These window coverings can also be motorized with rechargeable batteries or lithium batteries, enabling privacy levels to be adjusted and daylight to be filtered at the convenient touch of a button.

Consider curb appeal, as well. A potential buyer’s first impression will start when they walk up to your home’s entranceway. Either choose one blind or shade product to use throughout your home, or choose one product for the main floor and an alternative window covering for the second floor.

For selling purposes, depersonalize your home by choosing neutral, versatile colours.

More Ideas:

• Clear all clutter. You may want to consider renting a storage unit.
• Pack away all unnecessary and non-decor related items.
• Clean, clean, clean!
• Consider professionally staging your home.
• Fix all repairs.
• Manicure your gardens and lawn.

Taking these extra steps will help you quickly sell your home for its potential value. To find beautiful window covers that will help filter light, add privacy, and enhance your home’s curb appeal, contact Milton Blinds for a complimentary in-home consultation.
