Thinking of redesigning your home? Any changes you make now will have an effect on how easy your home is to sell – and at what price – when the time comes.
Of course, it’s important that YOU love your home, but before redecorating, consider how your decisions will affect your resale value and appeal to potential buyers.
At Mitten Made Properties, we see a LOT of Metro Detroit homes, and we have some advice on interior styles that can bring the most bang for your buck in terms of enjoyment now and profit later.
Let’s take a look at current design trends.
From Granite to Marble
Once-popular granite countertops are becoming a thing of the past. According to Trulia, homebuyers now prefer marble countertops, particularly if they’re in subtle black-and-white.
From Stainless Steel to Matte
Here’s some good news for anyone who’s tried incessantly to keep fingerprints from appearing on their stainless steel appliances: Matte is the new finish of choice. These dark hues create an elegant and bold feel, especially in the kitchen space.
Green, Gray, and Blue
Your interior paint choices are arguably the most important aspects of design. Cool shades of green, gray, and blue are ideal for living room space, while warm whites, yellows and red accents are perfect for a cheerful and appealing kitchen. If you’re unsure or just want to keep it simple, neutrals like taupe and shades of white are always in style. Steer clear of dark paint as it is quite difficult to cover – and potential buyers could see this as a negative if they dislike the color.
And remember, if your home is stuck in a decade too dated to be remedied with a low-budget refresh, give Mitten Made Properties a call. We buy homes fast, for cash, and as-is, whether you’ve got mustard-colored appliances, mirrored walls, country wallpaper or other style choices that clearly show their age.
