October Featured Before & After

White enameled trim is an amenity, but if buyer’s can’t see it, they can’t appreciate it.  Here we painted the walls Benjamin Moore Bennington Gray to make the room more inviting and show off the trim.
This living room is from the same home as the bathroom in the last post.  To see a before and after tour of the entire home, click here. This Minneapolis home will go on the market next week, let us know if you would like more information about it.

October Staging Tip of the Month

Staging Tip of the Month

Semi-gloss paint is very good for a lot of things.  But a small bathroom in an older home with a lot of uneven walls is not one of them.  Semi-gloss paint reflects light from every imperfection in a wall so it draws attention away from the good things in the room.  The reflection also makes the room feel smaller.

Here, a softer color paint in an eggshell finish makes this bathroom much more inviting.  We also replaced the large wall shelf with art to give the allusion of more space.  Painting the shelves white made them an accent to the room.  And for those of you following our staging tips, the lighting fixture was from our September tip.
