Renovation Investments Should Impact A Home’s Sale Potential

Impress ….. Don’t Stress!

Over 5 million homes change owners each year.  That means many hours of preparing a house to get ready to go to market.  It can be a stressful time!  Today, on another Wednesday “Wow”!, we share a renovation investment that will have a tremendous impact on the sale of this property.


The Before Fireplace

Renovating A Home To Sell

First, a quick bit of history about this home and it’s DIY owners.  When they contacted laurelbledsoedesign to ask for some ideas about the fireplace, they had been working non stop on the walls and floors.  In the before photo above, you can see the rich dark wood floors and snowy white walls.   The hope was to come up with a design that would not require removing the existing fireplace tile.

LBD’s Suggestions

  • paint the entire fireplace in the same, already great white color used on the walls
  • overlay a cement tile on the existing tile hearth
  • add a black framed, round mirror above the mantel
  • finish up with simple white ceramics full with greenery

Wow!  What An Impact!



Let’s look closer at the finishing accessories and this hearth.  Everyone who looks at this property is going to remember this is the house with the great fireplace!
