For Sellers: How to Make that Listing Pop!
Every buyer seems to be looking for an open kitchen next to a family room. And, in general, they want a space to feel fresh and updated; French doors always do that trick. They’re an easy way to open up a small, dated room. They’ll likely cost around $5,000 to $6,000, or double that if they’re being installed in a brick wall.

DITCH THE NAUTICAL THEME
Buyers have a hard time seeing past aesthetics, and most people’s tastes aren’t universal. You’ll want to emphasize brightness with lots of white. The furniture and finishes should be neutral to appeal to the masses—even if you hate that look.

FOR BUYERS: DEMYSTIFYING THE DECORATOR’S FEE
A consultation by an interior designer can range from an hourly rate to a flat fee of up to roughly $2,000, depending on the size of the house and the designer’s experience. The bill can be off-putting, but it will often include things like a customized floor plan, swatches of fabric, paint chips and a storyboard. You get the full sense of what the room is going to look like, and what will and will not have an impact. It’s a complete vision. Make sure when you’re hiring someone that you feel in sync with their style. After you have a frank discussion about the budget and put together your wish list, pass over your trust and let the designer come up with a plan.

*** The More affordable Option ***
