Having a small living room gives you a great chance to cozy up and feel snug. Itís not such a disadvantage to have a small living space. If you buy the right furniture and place it accordingly, your small space can have big personality. For example, buying a larger sofa takes up more room than a love seat, yet you may be able to fit a love seat and two chairs in the same space. This gives you the ability to seat more people. Pro tip: Armless chairs are great for small living rooms.


If youíre short on space in your home, you can use the corners of the room for other purposes. Tuck a desk with your computer in a part of the living space to help you make the most of the area that you do have. This helps to give the room multi-functional purposes with style.  


Use Focal Points


Like every room of any home, you need a focal point. Does your small living room have a fireplace? Hang some art above the fireplace, in order to help both pieces stand out. Using that area of the room as a focal point gives the appearance of a larger room. Keep away from over-stuffing a room with furniture and decor, as it will appear smaller. 


Bring Out The Height Of A Room


You can make a small room feel bigger if you bring out the height of the room. Hang paintings a bit further up the wall than normal. You donít want to make the space look awkward, but think outside the box to use the upward space of a small room. You may even consider placing molding type materials between one foot to a foot and a half from the top of the ceiling. 


Stacking Furniture Helps


No, we donít mean for you to stack your furniture pieces on top of each other. You could place a cabinet behind the back of a sofa thatís facing in the opposite direction. This can help to save space and create a feeling of divide in between rooms. This could also be a handy way for you to place tables next to chairs- directly against them- in order for guests to have a handy place to put drinks or appetizer plates.              


How To Make An Entrance


Many times, the living room is also the entrance to the home. Your living space can also serve as the home office or a dual dining space. For these purposes, keep everything smooth. If you make a color transition from room to room, be sure that itís subtle and well thought out. The overall color palette should be similar.

When it comes to making a good impression on prospective home buyers, small details can make a big difference! Not only do you want prospects to see your home as being clean, neat, and well organized, but it should also leave them with a good overall feeling.

Even though it can be a bit of a hassle to continually prepare your bathrooms for house showings, there's no bigger turnoff to prospective buyers than a grungy bathroom! Generally speaking, if people cringe at any aspect of your home (especially the bathrooms or kitchen), then they're probably not going to make an offer on your property.

In addition to making all fixtures and surfaces sparklingly clean, winning over potential buyers also involves making your home look inviting.

One thing many home sellers overlook is the condition of their bathroom towels and washcloths. If they're wet, bedraggled, or ragged looking, then that's going to send the wrong message to buyers. There are a variety of ways to overcome that, including putting out brand new, colorful towels that have never been used before (Just make sure to take off the store tags before putting them on display!).

If they're neatly folded and strategically placed, then they'll convey an impression of freshness, cleanliness, and neatness. Those are among the key qualities people want to see when they're considering buying your home. By making sure your house is well organized, uncluttered, and tastefully decorated, you're also giving the impression that you and your family take pride in the appearance and upkeep of your home. This is sure to score many Brownie points with potential buyers!

Besides ragged-looking towels, another subtle, but powerful turnoff for buyers is old-looking curtains. Although you may be so accustomed to your old curtains that you don't even notice or see them any more, there's a good chance they'll stand out like a sore thumb to other people! If the appearance of your curtains degrade the rest of the room, then that one aspect could literally be a deal killer. As the expression goes, "A chain is only as strong as its weakest link." People may not know exactly why they weren't favorably impressed with your home -- even though it met all their basic requirements --but it could be something as simple as grungy, faded, tattered-looking curtains, rugs, or towels. It's often an easy, relatively inexpensive fix, but you have to be aware of the problem before you can take corrective action.

Working with a real estate agent to help you present your home in its best light can make the process go much more smoothly and result in a faster sale. Experienced agents will also provide you with valuable advice, guidance, and marketing assistance that can favorably affect the actual selling price and the length of time your home remains on the market.

An open house represents a valuable opportunity for a home seller. If a seller plans ahead for an open house, he or she may boost the likelihood of hosting an unforgettable event that showcases the full beauty of a residence. As a result, this seller may receive multiple offers on his or her home as soon as the open house reaches its conclusion.

Believe it or not, preparing for an open house can be easy. Now, let's take a look at three tips to help a home seller get ready for an open house.

1. Perform Extensive Cleaning

A neat, tidy home is ideal, particularly for a home seller who wants to enjoy a fast, profitable home selling experience. Thus, if you allocate the necessary time and resources to clean your residence now, you may be better equipped than ever before to host a successful open house.

To clean your home's interior, you'll want to take a room-by-room approach. Wipe down each room's walls, mop or vacuum the floors and remove any debris.

Moreover, you should spend some time mowing the front lawn, trimming the hedges and performing assorted home exterior maintenance. And if you need extra help along the way, don't hesitate to reach out to a professional landscaping company, either.

2. Declutter As Much As Possible

Clutter can make it tough for a homebuyer to envision what life may be like if he or she buys your residence. Therefore, you'll want to remove as much clutter as possible prior to an open house.

Oftentimes, it helps to rent a storage unit where you can store assorted clutter until you finalize a home sale. A storage unit generally provides a safe and affordable option for home sellers who want to safeguard various belongings over the course of several weeks or months.

On the other hand, it may be beneficial to sell excess items online or host a yard sale. Because if you can sell items that you no longer need, you can declutter your home and earn extra cash at the same time.

3. Collaborate with a Real Estate Agent

Hosting an open house may prove to be challenging, particularly for those who are trying to work alone. Fortunately, real estate agents are available who can help you take the guesswork out of getting ready for any open house, at any time.

A real estate agent is happy to provide comprehensive support at each stage of the home selling journey. As such, he or she will help you enhance your home and ensure it is open house-ready.

Usually, a real estate agent will offer personalized recommendations to help you prep your residence for an open house. This housing market professional also will promote your open house in the weeks and days leading up to the event. And when the open house ends, a real estate agent can provide honest, unbiased event feedback as well.

Host a successful open house Ė use the aforementioned tips, and you should have no trouble achieving the best-possible results during an open house.
