Image
Like millions of people around the world, you start and finish your day tackling important hygienic routines in your bathroom. With so much important time spent in this room, it's safe to say that it's a pretty important space in your home. Remodeling your bathroom can be an effective way to improve your home's value. With a little effort, you can improve your master bathroom in a way that any buyer would fall in love with. Here are a few easy ways you can update your bathroom before selling your home at the Lake of the Ozarks!


Add New Flooring
Old, chipped linoleum can date a bathroom faster than anything else in the space. You can get away with laying new linoleum in your bathroom, but if you really want to update the space, opt for something updated and timeless like tile. Ceramic tile is still just as popular as ever, and you can even get a tile that mimics the look and texture of wood so you aren't straying from a warm spa-like feel.

Staging Your Master Bedroom to Sell!

Image
Staging your home to sell is one of the easiest ways to show off your home's full potential and entice buyers. We've covered staging your home's living room and kitchen so far. This week we're going to focus on the master bedroom, which can be a very important room to many homebuyers. At eXp Realty, we care that you not only sell your home but that you find buyers who will be a great fit. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you prepare to stage a Lake of the Ozarks home.


Use Caution with Color Choices
The key to staging your master bedroom is to create a place that will feel comfortable and homey. Choosing the right colors can make a definite impact on the feeling of the room. If you currently have bold, bright colors, you may want to tone them down with something calmer like a light blue, green, beige or gray.

Be Minimalistic

Staging Your Kitchen to Sell!

With up to three meals a day, multiple snacks, and catching up after your kids are back from school, the kitchen in your home is always hopping. Since your kitchen is typically the hub spot for family gatherings, you want to make sure that this room shines above all of the others. Remodeling your kitchen can be one of the most effective ways to improve your home's value, so here are a few things to keep in mind as you make changes.


Start with a Facelift
Sometimes the only thing your kitchen really needs is a bright coat of color to make it look new. You can repaint the walls, and/or cabinets to keep things fresh. If you'll be repainting, just remember to stick with satin and shiny paints so that splatters can be easily wiped up. If you'll be selling your home in the near future, try to stick with colors that are timeless and neutral. Greys, beiges, light browns and greens are always a great option when you are selling your home. Potential buyers can imagine themselves in th…
