Daily Real Estate News  |  March 18, 2010  |   'Speed Decorating' Quickly Improves Property
Anyone planning to sell a home might be advised to read Jill Vegas’ Speed Decorating.” Vegas explains how to redecorate at minimum cost and maximum speed.

“Speed decorating,” she says, “is not about calling in contractors; it's about looking at a room and thinking about what you can do in a couple of hours, a week, to make it better."

Vegas offers these tips for anyone who needs to do a little high impact, low cost upgrading:
  • Clear out the clutter
  • Clean and repaint
  • Define the function of each room and then place furniture to accentuate that purpose
  • Improve the lighting, adding bright light to work areas and soft light to bed and dining rooms
  • Use art and accessories to add drama and personality
