Don’t Forget the Laundry


When you’re selling your home in Naples, your REALTOR® will most likely talk to you about home staging – the act of making your space more appealing to buyers. One of the spaces in a home that’s often neglected during staging is the laundry room… but it doesn’t have to be. Check out these four tips to make your laundry room more appealing to buyers before you put your home on the market.

4 Tips to Make Your Laundry Room More Appealing to Buyers

  • Add art.

  • Use vertical organizers.

  • Make use of baskets and decorative boxes.

  • Don’t be afraid of bold colors.

Here’s a closer look at each

#1: Add Art

In the vast majority of laundry rooms, people avoid hanging art. That’s because they see laundry rooms as purely functional spaces – but when you’re selling a home, you’re selling an idea of comfort and style. Hang art in your laundry room, whether it’s an adorable picture of socks hanging on a laundry line or a classic piece you are likely to see in a museum.

#2: Use Vertical Organizers

Because floor space is usually at a premium in laundry rooms, use vertical organization techniques. That means using shelves and cabinets that can expand storage opportunities. You can even add a hanging basket, such as one that you’d see in a child’s room for stuffed animals. A tall, rolling rack with space for hanging clothes is also a welcome addition, provided you have the floor space for it.

#3: Make Use of Baskets and Decorative Boxes

Rather than leaving everything out in the open, use beautiful baskets and decorative boxes to store laundry room items. These also can serve the purpose of adding texture to the space, which is something that will make the room look more inviting. Place these on shelves to create a well-coordinated, streamlined look that buyers will love.

#4: Don’t Be Afraid of Bold Colors

Laundry rooms are small spaces, and that means they’re perfect for decorating in bold ways. A bright laundry room is less likely to put off buyers than, say, a hot pink wall in your living room. Because you can close the door to a laundry room, it’s the perfect place for bright colors and bold patterns. You should talk to your real estate agent before you make any major changes to the style in this space, but there’s a good chance that you can make it bold and vibrant to make a lasting impression on prospective buyers.
