Window Treatments Can Help Sell Your Home - Let a Home Stager Show You How

New window treatments can make a world of difference when selling your home. They can add value and style to your home and be something the buyers view as a bonus - something they will not have to buy or replace when they move in. When it comes to window treatments, one size doesn't fit all. Some windows are smaller than others are. Some look over gorgeous views while others serve more of a utility function. And each window is in a room with its own style. Sometimes a home stager will suggest that you remove the drapes and all the accompanying hardware to show off a beautiful view or to let in the natural light. More often than not, however, your stager will replace them with something that makes the room more appealing to the potential buyers.

For instance, your stager may suggest adding floor-to-ceiling window panels. These panels are large and will bring in a large amount of color, drawing the eye through the room to the window. Side panels can either be stationary or have the ability to open and close when necessary.

Another option is top treatments. These include intricate swags to a simple swath of fabric over a wooden rod. Top treatments are a good option for smaller windows or those windows that provide needed natural light. Top treatments can also be added to side panels to create a rich elegance.

As you ready your home for sale, walk through your home as if you were a buyer. Do your window treatments allow enough light into the room? Do they fit in with current styles? Are the colors still vibrant? If not, a home stager can help you turn your windows into an asset instead of a liability.
