What are we seeing in 2019 for home updates before we Sell?

As a real estate broker, I always get excited to see a new home.   All interiors are unique to a seller’s style.   And we all want our homes to be “in style”….in 2018 we were starting to see gold fixtures in the new construction homes (not all but with some of the builders/designers that stay on the cutting edge).  And again 2019 is setting up to be a year where we wave goodbye to stainless steel and polished nickel, and welcome brass and gold accents back into our homes. The gold and brass are a surprisingly warm and subtle alternative to the expected steel/chrome we have been viewing for the past ten years.

Modern and bold colors are also starting to be the 2019 trend:

Though muted colors can help you avoid making spaces feel overwhelming, designers believe that 2019 will be a year where bolder colors are preferred. Richer hues throughout your home can make more muted furnishings and decorative decor pop. Lookout for dramatic reds, statement pinks, bold yellows and organic greens…..and some floral prints!

I am also seeing velvet and simple modern furniture….fun!……good bye heavy leather!  Open the space and de-clutter.

The designers tell me truly timeless design trend, black and white furnishings will want to be on your list of trends to incorporate into your home’s decor this 2019. The visual contrast of black and white will provide a sense of balance and boldness to your home’s space.   I love this concept…the house feels open and not so personalized and overwhelming for a new home buyer walking through your home.

If you are looking for selling advice my husband and I are always happy to come visit your home.  All our listings include a home stager’s advice.   We want to make sure your home is beautiful for any new buyer.  The selling and buying season is upon us – no more procrastinating!
