Transform Your House into a Home With These Tips

by Lynn Ganster, PA 03/11/2019

Your home is your haven, and as such, it deserves special treatment. Contrary to the erroneous idea that home décor takes up lots of cash and time, we have put together a few ridiculously easy home-décor tips that are sure to help you transform your house to the home it deserves to be.

  1. Employ bright colors. Bright colors have a magical effect on any space. Colors help make even the smallest room appear more prominent. A great combination of large windows, bright-colored walls and carefully chosen furniture is all you need to bring the style and space home. Dark colors, on the other hand, suck up space and life in a room. Even a big room looks small and cramped with dark colors.
  2. Let the Mirror do the Trick. A mirror is yet another way to work the magic. They add scale and dimension to any space. Bright reflection from mirrors helps project an optical illusion of space. Be sure to place it just opposite the window for an effective result. Let the mirror do the trick!
  3. Use Dimmers with Your Lighting. Bright is not always the smart choice, especially when it comes to lighting. Make your home feel warm with dimmers. Dim lights will complement the mirrors and bright-colored walls, floors, and furniture.
  4. Use Drapes to Project False Height. Proper use of drapes with simple floor ceiling can create an illusion of higher ceilings. Make sure the curtains hung correctly for a fantastic result.
  5. Don't Push the Furniture Against the Wall! The first line of thinking when it comes to creating space in the living room is to push the furniture against the wall. Yes, you get some free space, but the room becomes more of a waiting room than a living room. Let the furniture float instead. Experts advise placing the furniture at least 18 inches from the anchor coffee table. You could choose any area you wish. It doesn't have to be the middle of the room.
  6. Spice Things up with a Touch of Varying Patterns. An excellent way to spice up your décor is to employ different patterns. You could mix things up with expensive and inexpensive designs. Matching new patterns with old ones is a creative way to go too. Mixing it up helps to give your home a unique touch that others lack. Give it a try!
  7. Add Color with Plants. Going green is the wave of today. Try adding color to your home décor by having plants in every room. Besides improving the beauty of your home, these plants also help cleanse the air in your home by absorbing pollutants and removing harmful gases. Go green!

It all began when I was 18 years old and my soon to be husband and I were searching for our first home. I loved the idea that I could be part of someones life experience but I had a life to live before acting on that idea! I never knew much about the industry, but after seeing the process firsthand of a difficult transaction my husband and I were involved in and how important each part of the ordeal was for both my husband, myself, and the owner, I knew it was something that I wanted to be a part of. Of course, I didn’t pursue real estate until I was finally able to dive in back in 2004, but it’s been a passion for as long as I can remember.

I can sit here and tell you that I have strong negotiating skills, local market knowledge, and so forth – and of course, I do – but one thing I want to share with you, the thing that is the most important tool I can provide you in your home sale or purchase is my passion. I didn’t get into the industry to make money. I got into the industry because I fell in love with it. I fell in love with homes, the character each one had, and the beautiful people I got to help transition from one home to another. I fell in love with hearing people's stories, really getting to know their needs for their futures, and focusing on ensuring that they found a home that actually met those future goals.

Real estate can be a stressful thing, moving out of a home you’ve known for years can be hard, and it can be harder if you don’t have someone to partner with who doesn’t take the time to understand that. My business goes beyond the professionalism I can bring to the table, my years of knowledge about our local market and communities, and past the number of sales I’ve made thus far. Instead, it prioritizes you. How much can you afford? What motivates your move? What do you HAVE to have to make this big transition in your life?

You need a real estate agent who understands that, and seeks to know the answer to those questions, and all of the other important ones that make buying and selling a reality for you. Let’s grab coffee or lunch, on me, and we’ll talk about your real estate goals. I’ll get to know your needs, I’ll share the amazing experience I can provide, and we’ll make sure your next move is in the right direction. You need more than a computer to find your dream home, you need a professional partner who has your best interest at heart from the moment you call to even after we close. I’m doing more than just selling houses in Florida, I’m helping you bring your dream home to life.
