Develop a concept board. You can help your sellers widen the pool of buyers by making it easier for possible future owners to see past an orange range, blue refrigerator, or countertop with exotic swirls. If they really dont want to change a thing, suggest to your sellers that they hire a designer to develop a concept board with samples of more tame choices and a rendering of new design options. “That way you take away the unknown, which to some can be overwhelming” for buyers, says Jennifer Ames, a real-estate salesperson with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Chicago. “The boards become a road map and you could help more by asking a contractor to estimate replacement costs.” How much might a board cost? Pogonitz hasnt yet designed one, but she estimates shed charge $350 to pull together two with different options. The price may vary by region, but the bottom line is that its not that expensive to present a clearer vision of whats possible.
Sometimes, a wildly unexpected hue can be the easiest way to update a room, which was the approach architect Anik Pearson took with a vintage New York apartment that had its footprint and bones intact. “We restored it to its glory but with a modern twist by painting the dining rooms walls and beams a bold teal, filling in the space between beams in white, and running some chinoiserie-inspired wallpaper all around,” she says. Bob Zuber, partner, principal, and head of architectural design at Morgante Wilson Architects in Chicago, finds that tinted Venetian plaster warms up ceilings. For the best coverage and less splatter, Rick Wilson, director of product information at Sherwin-Williams, stresses the importance of using quality ceiling paint. His colleague Sue Wadden, director of color marketing, suggests going with flat or matte finishes to hide imperfections and produce a polished, clean look for any color choice. Otherwise, painting the ceiling is no different from painting walls.
