Livingroom/Familyroom Before and After – The Heart of every Home

Livingroom/Familyroom Before and After – The Heart of every Home

May 25, 2010 | Barbara's Blog

The heart of every Home is the place where a family or homeowner will relax, play, communicate and entertain. The Sanctuary for spending time with family friends and loved ones.

When potential home buyers walk through the living room area of a home, they should be able to see themselves engaging in these activities.

Some Key Principles:

  • Define the great features of the room and play them.
  • Create a warm and inviting Living Environment
  • Maximizing space, arrange furniture for the best possible flow
  • Making it conducive to conversation / entertaining.

Always step back to the doorway and evaluate your final results. Nothing should be obstructing the view and highlights should pop but never distract. When buyers walk through the room, they should want to sit down and spend time in it.

If they sit and or spent more time, then we are one step closer towards a possible offer.
