On-Trend Cheap Updates For Home Sellers
Posted by Richard on November 9, 2021
If you will be in the market to sell your home in coming months, you can get the best price with some inexpensive DIY updates, on-trend with young buyers.
Country and ship-lap are on the way out, but granny chic is right on-trend.
Granny chic is the new millennial drift toward nostalgia and comfort. It is the kind of decor that evokes security and tradition, although you can be sure that millennial buyers will be tucking technology between the drapes.
With the right touch, that granny chic look can be achieved with peel-and-stick wallpaper, popular right now for those who want a quick update without a lot of commitment. Geometric patterns and florals are all back in for splashes of wallpaper. Use it in the kitchen or in a bathroom for a quick change that can be easily removed when you sell — or get tired of it.
Gray cabinets and gray kitchens, all-white rooms and vast empty spaces are all going out.
Instead, greens are in for kitchen cabinets, according to the Insider. Warm, cozy — and way less industrial — are the goals for kitchens.
With woven furniture styles gaining in popularity, wicker and rattan elements should also make the preferred list.
On display are ceramics of all kind, matched with florals and patterns for that vintage look.
Meanwhile, it isn’t grandma’s house. While her comfy house is back with deep cushioned furniture and a love of pattern, the new granny chic is also high-tech. Millennials, after all, expect their homes to be smart.
