Don’t Overlook Your Lighting When Selling your Home!

Americans are spending again, and that’s a good sign for the economy.  After the recession in 2008, people cut back heavily on their purchases.  As more people are finding jobs and incomes have been slowing rising, this trend translates to an increase in consumer spending which is good news for the auto and housing industries. If you’re about to put your house on the market, you’re probably wondering, “How much can I get for it?” Selling your home requires a keen eye to make it appeal to a wide audience. It’s careful planning and knowing how to spruce up your home that will get you the most money for your home. There are a lot of things that affect potential buyers when they are taking a tour of your home.  Poor lighting can make a home look dingy and dirty.  Here are a few tips to help your home look bright and marketable:


Looking Up Never Looked Better!!

There is good reason to look up!!

Today’s ceilings are a lot more elaborate and have more architectural design than in years passed.  A great ceiling design whether it is in the living room or the dining area, the kitchen or the bedroom, can give a room unique and individual character leaving quite an impression to all who enter.

There are countless patterns, designs and colors to choose from. From a tray ceiling to beam ceilings, a cove ceiling to the highly popular drop ceiling, coordinating your lighting with these unusual ceiling patterns can give your home a dazzling look.

Our Favorite Design Trends

It’s the beginning of 2014, and so many design trends are being talked about this year.  We chose a few of our favorites to highlight.

Popularity of open layouts continue to grow.  Open plans promote interaction among family and guests, as walls are not a barrier.  With that, the kitchen continues to serve as the home’s “hub” while the rest of the home flows freely off the kitchen.

Mixing and matching furniture, colors, patterns, and design motifs are also seeing a rise in popularity. Most design magazines are showing saturated hues such as navy and plum in velvet, suede or corduroy and accessorizing with bold throw pillows, lamps and blankets.
