Window Treatment Ideas that Help Sell Your Home
If you're selling your home, your window treatments - curtains, blinds, etc. - will often be included with the property. They are an important selling feature. So, when a prospective buyer views your home, looks at the front window with its gorgeous draperies, and says, "Wow!", that's a good thing.
If you’re thinking of upgrading your window treatments in preparation for selling, here are a few ideas:
Buyers love to see vertical blinds on sliding patio doors. Installing these is a DIY-friendly project.
You may have a window that, for whatever reason, doesn’t need a curtain or blind. That’s fine. But, if you want to dress it up, consider a nice-looking valance.
If you have a window that looks dark, heavy or otherwise “over curtained”, strip it down.
Removing an inner curtain, for example, can dramatically lighten up the window as well as the entire room.
Replace any worn or stained curtains. There are many affordable, mid-quality curtains available that look terrific. Alternatively try sending stained curtains to the cleaners.
