Both in Home Staging and decorating, mirrors are one of the most
affordable, versatile, quickest and easiest ways to create an impact.
They can brighten a room by reflecting light back in, add dimension
and depth to a small space and create the illusion of expanding a
space. Mirrors can give practicality to an empty wall, add interest
in a boring room, bring color and texture to an otherwise hard, cold
reflective surface as well as serve as a classy and stylish wall décor.

Common uses for mirrors in the home include personal grooming,
decoration, and architecture. Mirrors are used in furniture, for
example a table top, doors, as shelving and behind shelving,
in bathrooms, bedroom wardrobes, common in bar areas and
exercise rooms, as wall hangings, mirror mazes, kitchen
backsplashes and table topper to name a few uses.

Decorative Glass Mirrors come in many different shapes, round,
oval, rectangular, assorted sizes and styles, such as etched,
beveled, concave and convex. They come sandblasted, tinted,
textured, painted and can be frameless or framed in contemporary,
traditional, wrought iron, accent, antique to name a few and their
associated frames can really make them a piece of art.

On the other side of the coin, it is easy to make an unattractive
impact with the use of mirrors. Some quick tips for decorating with
mirrors are: make sure it’s in scale and proportion with the size of
the room. Every mirror should be sparkling clean. Take into
consideration the purpose of the mirror. It is important to consider
what the mirror will reflect, what images with appear duplicated.
Avoid mirrors in unattractive or cluttered areas of the home.

Homeowners Help Realtors Sell Your House – #1. Leave the Lights On

There are many ways which homeowners can help Realtors.
One way is to leave the lights on inside and outside when appropriate.

When a Realtor is showing your house to a qualified potential buyer
it is because either the Realtor or the buyer have chosen your house
to view from all the other comparable houses for sale on the Multiple
Listing Service.

The Realtor does not know your house, but wants to show it to its
best potential. Motivated buyers view houses at all hours of the day
and evening, during nice weather, as well as during inclement weather.

You can help by leaving your exterior lights on especially during the
evening hours so the Realtor can easily get the lockbox open. The buyer
will get a good look at the front of the house and curb appeal upon arrival.
Leaving the backyard lights on will catch the attention of the buyers and
make sure they look in your backyard and easily see its features. Installing
timers or motion detectors on exterior lights and timers on a few interior lights
would be an alternative.

As I mentioned the Realtor does not know your house, most light switches
are easy to find, but some are not. A well lit room is always more inviting.
If you have special lighting, for example pot lights that are a selling feature,
we want to make sure the buyer sees them. We especially want the buyers
to be aware of all your upgrades and selling features.

Leaving the lights on inside and outside when appropriate benefits
everyone in the end.
