The renovation process includes the physical work and the choice of the best supplies to elicit maximum positive emotional effect from prospective buyer.

This article brings to light the psychological impact of design details which result in the desired transformation, promising the highest potential resale value. By incorporating the psychology of residential design, you intentionally choose how to transform your fixer by using colors, textures, building materials, and decorations that assure your future speedy and cost-effective sale.

Design details additionally influence our senses of touch, smell, hearing, and even taste.

Selling Season: Fall and Winter

House Style: Cottage
Exterior Colors: Pale yellow, Khaki Brown, Creamy White

House Style: Tuscan
Exterior Colors: Tuscany Gold, Chocolate Brown, Olive Green
Front Door: Terra Cotta Red
Interior Colors: Tuscany Gold, Mocha, Mixture of these colors
Trim: Ivory
Flooring: Ivory carpeting, hard wood, tile

Your goal of composing a glorious home that buyers can't live without begins with your planning of changes desired. Following a design plan, from inception to realization, bit by bit, simplifies and organizes your makeover. Taking the time to make a design plan assures you of a profitable and quick sale.
