Home Staging: Bringing The Yard Together

The genius of MLQH is that it speaks to the whole woman. We all love some celeb gossip. We all have to eat (and drink!), we all have relationships and sex lives and we all want to advance our art, learn new things, and share a sense of community with other readers.

A home fulfills many purposes, but it can also satisfy numerous personal, aesthetic, and emotional requirements that can be difficult to describe in words. In starting to imagine your home design, it will help your architect if you identify and communicate how you want each space to feel. How?

New zones. The classic appliance triangle has given way to zones for specific tasks. This trend has led to another in which countertops are customized for certain jobs. A lower marble surface for rolling pastry, a higher wood block for chopping, and so on.

They may claim that they are trying to protect you by giving you this information, but what they are really trying to do is protect themselves from a sense of failure by preventing you from trying and succeeding.

Often, simply changing the room color can be a dramatic change. If you are unsure about how to update your kitchen, visit a model home. This will give you an idea of what the newest trends in kitchens. It may provide just the inspiration you need to get your own remodeling project started. If your visit does not provide any inspiration, try some home magazine and websites. These sites and magazines will give you information on the cutting edge trends. Print or cut out the items that you like the most. You will quickly realize that a particular style or trend is jumping out at you.

Also, make sure your real estate agent uses aggressive marketing strategies to make sure your home sells. In a red-hot market, the MLS is probably the only exposure your home will need. However, if the market is anything less than red-hot, your agent will need to print flyers and introduce your home to other agents in his or her office, as well as other local sales offices. Also, exposure in cuisine at home ads, classified ads, and the internet will help generate demand for your home. Make sure your agent uses a powerful marketing program!

Or has it already under a different name? I’m thinking of the trend toward loft living, which comes without rooms. (Only the bathrooms are walled in.) Open layouts routinely show kitchens and beds in the same space. Lofts, often converted warehouses at inner-city locations, are so popular today that the U.S. Department of Justice reports less crime in urban areas than in the suburbs.
