When a move is in the works, you are most likely seriously considering what painting projects need to be done. Before you ever list your house, you may want to update the paint in key areas to make it as appealing as possible. You may be wondering what areas need painting and what areas can wait for the next owner. The painting professionals at Jacobsen Brothers have decades of experience in helping homeowners in greater Boulder, CO, prepare for selling an existing house and moving into a new house.
As you prepare your house for the market and look for your next house, here are three strategies to consider:
- Broaden your house’s appeal
If your current house has dramatic décor in a particular room, you may want to consider making that room more neutral to appeal to a wider audience. People need to be able to visualize their own furniture in that space, and, traditionally, that is considered easier when the room is more of a “blank canvas” in appearance. When in doubt, the professional design team at Jacobsen Brothers can offer an expert opinion.
- Put your house’s best foot forward
No house is always perfect for your needs. By now, you know the areas of your house that you wish you could improve. Sometimes, all that is needed is a fresh coat of paint to give it a different look. If the high traffic areas show signs of dirt or smudges, some fresh paint will work wonders. If a hallway is dingy and poorly lighted, a lighter choice in paint will improve it dramatically. If a room is small and cramped, a new coat of light-colored paint can brighten it and make it appear bigger. If a wall has imperfections, an expert paint job can lessen its noticeability. Whatever your design concerns are, Jacobsen Brothers can make improvements with the right application of color and style.
- Schedule to paint before you move in
While you’re improving your existing house to increase your appeal on the market, it is a good time to schedule your new house for painting before you move in. The easiest way to paint the interior of a house is while it is still empty. If you schedule Jacobsen Brothers to paint your new house before you move in, you can save money in labor since it will be easier for them to move efficiently throughout the house.
You can also ensure your furnishings are completely protected by not being in the way of a painting project. Moving into a house that has the right colors and a clean, fresh look will help you and your family settle in and feel more at home.
