Learning About Curb Appeal

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

Have you ever drove past a home that looks immaculate outside and you wonder what it would be like to live there. The house that the grass is always cut and the landscaping is great. But if you were to go past the same house with it looking all messy you wouldn’t even give it a second look.

Did you drive by, sit there looking at it for a couple minutes thinking about how it would be to live there? Did you notice the yard? Was neatly trimmed and the lawn mowed or did you see long grass, weeds, overgrown bushes and junk in the back yard? I bet if you saw the yard in a mess, you had second thoughts about seeing the inside.

Put out front a mat, a simple one that will welcome the potential new owners. Just a mat that says “Welcome” will work perfectly. Adding area rugs around your house can help to make it brighter. With color all around you will draw attention to certain aspects of the rooms, and plus these rugs can be placed strategically to cover a stain you may have. Remember to make sure that these rugs are similar to the wall color and the furniture.

Try the rugs in different places to see where it adds the most to your room. Remember showing your house may mean a bunch of people wearing a track in the carpet, put a runner rug in place to protect the carpet. When you use an area rug they can instantly bring that room all together, and make a room seem warm and cozy.

You will get to take these new buys with you after your house is sold. You will need to make sure that the contract includes that you can take the rugs with you. This way you will have an immediate start to the new decor in your new place. So take this into consideration when you are purchasing the rugs.

The great thing about area rugs and runners is when you move, pack them up with you. Just make sure when you close the house it’s in the contract that everything which it was shown with isn’t staying except whatever you list. Always remember an area rug will give you a cozy feeling no matter where you go.
