Taking down family pictures and wall décor that represents your family is one of the first things most homeowners know to do when it comes time to sell their home. Experts say when selling a home, it is best to make the home as neutral as possible in order to give prospective buyers a blank canvas they can see themselves moving into.
Taking down a lot of the art and décor on your wall will undoubtedly leave you with a bunch of blank space you need to fill. So, what art on the wall is best to showcase when trying to sell your home?
If you aren’t sure what type of art to put in each room, take a cue from the room itself. What is the purpose of the room you are looking for art in? if you are looking for a piece of wall art for a kitchen, then choose something that can stem off of that theme. For example, wine glasses or a café scene are great compliments to any kitchen. If you are looking for inspiration for a bedroom, try a black and white images of flowers, or a sleeping abstract to represent calmness.
When selling your home, it is best to choose wall art that will show off the lifestyle of your home’s architecture and neighborhood. It is a great way to bring flair to your home and give it style when showing.
Abstract art is a great way to bring color and uniqueness to a home when selling it. Since there is no right or wrong answer to abstract art, you really can’t go wrong no matter what buyer walks through your doors. It is an inoffensive way to add color and dimension to your home.
Landscape art is another great option in wall décor, as natural scenery from mountains, to forests, trees, flowers or rivers are both peaceful but also neutral when it comes to buyer taste. You can use realistic or abstract landscape art, which works great in living rooms, family rooms or bedrooms.
Lettering is another unique and cool way to highlight a home and be used as art. You could spell out something using letting in a room, such as “relax” spelled out in a bathroom or “laundry” in a laundry room.
Lastly, maps are another great piece of art to hang in most any room of a home. Depending on the style of your home, you can use traditional maps or a more modern version to hang in a family room, den or office.
Investing in simple art work pieces for the walls of your home can make a big difference when it comes to how your home shows to buyers.
