If you’re planning to list your home on the Vancouver real estate market this year, we’ve put together your must-do home improvement list. Whether it’s a False Creek condo for sale or East Vancouver house, these simple staging steps will make your home stand out. You could sell faster, and at a higher asking price. These are the home decor trends you need to know!
Start with a Kilim rug for their wild prints and well-traveled vibes for a statement. The added bonus of a throw rug is it covers up less-than-perfect flooring. Put it in the entryway, and you’ve got an instant warm welcome accent. Their tight weave makes them perfect for high-traffic areas like this as well.
And the more bold, patterned, and bright it is, the better! Create accent walls, update kitchen or bathroom backsplashes with a patterned tile, or get creative and use them as wall art. The 3D texture of a tile gives the illusion of added warmth.
Incorporating warm jewel hues and cozy fabrics like a luscious velvet can soothe a hectic life. Dark blues, purples, greens, and gold are the 2017 go-tos. Put them on the wall, or use as as an accent–imagine an entire purple velvet couch to punch up your living room! Combine with the galaxy-themed accessories that flooded the decor aisles this year, and you’ve got an on-trend look.
Houseplants are the perfect way to spruce up an uninviting space. They create a sense of warmth and add pops of colour. Use faux stone planters, and you’ve got a trend double whammy! Stone walls, granite, and marble are as popular as ever for surface areas from counters to bathroom walls.
Matte black adds a touch of sophistication, while copper edged out rose gold as the metal trend of 2017. Display a copper collection of pots and pans in the kitchen, and you’ll immediately evoke a warm, vintage feel that draws the buyer in.
