When it comes to cabinetry, colors are becoming more robust nationwide. Manufacturer MasterBrand Cabinets has found blue tones are becoming more popular, while teal, sage, and olive colors are making inroads. But when it comes to selling, color expert Amy Wax generally recommends being more cautious and favoring lighter colors that convey an easy-to-decorate, move-in atmosphere. How you can take action: Learn preferences of buyers in your market, which may require asking paint store salespeople, designers, architects, and color experts. Then share what you learn with clients. “You can help buyers find a look by showcasing an updated aesthetic that doesnt feel contrived,” Wadden says.
Midcentury design made its way onto the American residential architecture scene as a way to merge clean, modern aesthetics with burgeoning postwar demand for housing. The often one-story homes feature clean lines and large windows that bring nature into full view. Bedgood sees the style as one of the best examples of what a home should be. It “was almost always designed with people in mind,” he says. He also loves how flexible the style is, allowing homeowners to integrate an “eclectic mix of furniture” and decor in the home without it feeling like a hodge-podge.
How you can take action: Your sellers dont have to revamp rooms completely. Make suggestions on incorporating a few pieces to get the look. “You can capture a concept with a single well-chosen piece. Make it bold, beautiful, and memorable, and your listing will stand out in buyers minds,” Chandler says. How you can take action: This small livable option can be a good investment for your buyers. Find out if there are any developments in the works in your market. “Many pay higher prices for lower-square-foot rentals,” Hunt says.
Another builder that focuses on large luxury homes takes the concept a step further by giving the pajama lounge some of the best views in the house. Architect Paul Fischman of Miami-based Choeff Levy Fischman puts the spaces near bedrooms on the second level so they overlook water views, as most of their houses face the ocean or intracoastal waterways. And even when a site seems impossibly tight, Lexington Homes has found a way to squeeze in these spaces. The Chicago builder is adding pajama lounges to the three-story townhomes its constructing in the citys Avondale neighborhood, on the third floor near the master bedroom suite. “The idea,” says co-principal Jeff Benach, “is that children whose rooms and bedroom are on the second floor will come up to the parents level so all can hang out together.” For those parents who dont want to climb an extra flight of stairs, the master suite and flex room might be switched with the second-floor childrens bedrooms. The floor on which the flex space is placed is less important than ensuring that theres a bathroom close by, Benach says.
