But simpler uses of crown molding or ceiling trim can achieve effects such as unifying adjoining rooms for less than $1,000, says Julie Whitley, director of architecture design at homebuilder Red Seal Development Corp. in Northbrook, Ill. One DIY technique thats attracted wide attention and adds an updated farmhouse feel is to use shiplap, basically manufactured boards with grooves that fit together snugly. The look picked up steam after celebrity TV couple Chip and Joanna Gaines of HGTVs “Fixer Upper” show began using them in countless projects, including on ceilings. For a more modern vibe, Zuber of Morgante Wilson Architects recommends trim with an angled or slanted profile rather than straight rectangular boards. He advises keeping millwork in the right proportion to the ceilings height. “Four-inch crown is good for an 8- or 9-foot ceiling,” he says.

He advises making certain features look aspirational—like theyre part of a curated Instagram feed. Pogonitz also sees social media as an inspiration for listing materials. “This is how millennials communicate, build interest, and gain followers,” she says, recommending agents use close-ups and short videos to relay a story about features that showcase personal style. However, if theres anything in the room that may not appeal, Kim Cantine with Coldwell Banker Village Green Realty in Rhinebeck, N.Y., suggests not highlighting it. “Buyers will see it in person, but you dont have to play it up,” she says.
