Having a small living room gives you a great chance to cozy up and feel snug. Itís not such a disadvantage to have a small living space. If you buy the right furniture and place it accordingly, your small space can have big personality. For example, buying a larger sofa takes up more room than a love seat, yet you may be able to fit a love seat and two chairs in the same space. This gives you the ability to seat more people. Pro tip: Armless chairs are great for small living rooms.


If youíre short on space in your home, you can use the corners of the room for other purposes. Tuck a desk with your computer in a part of the living space to help you make the most of the area that you do have. This helps to give the room multi-functional purposes with style.  


Use Focal Points


Like every room of any home, you need a focal point. Does your small living room have a fireplace? Hang some art above the fireplace, in order to help both pieces stand out. Using that area of the room as a focal point gives the appearance of a larger room. Keep away from over-stuffing a room with furniture and decor, as it will appear smaller. 


Bring Out The Height Of A Room


You can make a small room feel bigger if you bring out the height of the room. Hang paintings a bit further up the wall than normal. You donít want to make the space look awkward, but think outside the box to use the upward space of a small room. You may even consider placing molding type materials between one foot to a foot and a half from the top of the ceiling. 


Stacking Furniture Helps


No, we donít mean for you to stack your furniture pieces on top of each other. You could place a cabinet behind the back of a sofa thatís facing in the opposite direction. This can help to save space and create a feeling of divide in between rooms. This could also be a handy way for you to place tables next to chairs- directly against them- in order for guests to have a handy place to put drinks or appetizer plates.              


How To Make An Entrance


Many times, the living room is also the entrance to the home. Your living space can also serve as the home office or a dual dining space. For these purposes, keep everything smooth. If you make a color transition from room to room, be sure that itís subtle and well thought out. The overall color palette should be similar.

A nightmare home selling experience is something that every home seller wants to avoid. Fortunately, we're here to teach you the ins and outs of selling a house so that you can minimize the risk of problems that could lead to a nightmare home selling experience.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you avoid a nightmare home selling experience.

1. Study the Real Estate Market Closely

You don't need to be a real estate market expert to find ways to maximize the profits from your home sale. Instead, you can study the real estate market closely and gain the insights that you need to price your house competitively.

Remember, a home seller's goal is to optimize the value of his or her house. To accomplish this goal, it is paramount to establish the right home price from day one. Otherwise, a home seller risks alienating buyers with a price that is too high, or missing out on profits due to a price that is too low.

Take a look at the prices of available houses in your area that are similar to your own. This housing market data will enable you to see how your residence stacks up against the competition so that you can price your house accordingly.

2. Conduct a Home Inspection

A home inspection usually is completed after a home seller accepts a buyer's offer. However, a home seller who conducts an inspection before listing his or her residence can increase the likelihood of a profitable home sale. Perhaps best of all, this home seller can avoid the danger of a buyer requesting home repairs or a price reduction later in the home selling cycle.

During a home inspection, a property expert will evaluate your residence both inside and out. This property expert then will provide a comprehensive report that details his or her findings.

Examine a home inspection report. That way, you can find out about your house's strengths and weaknesses and take the necessary steps to transform various weaknesses into strengths.

3. Hire an Experienced Real Estate Agent

An experienced real estate agent understands exactly what it takes to sell a home, regardless of the current housing market's conditions. As such, this real estate agent can serve as a guide throughout the home selling journey and help you immediately identify and resolve any potential home selling hurdles.

For example, an experienced real estate agent can provide you with a wealth of housing market data before you list your residence. This housing market professional will help you make sense of assorted real estate data and ensure that you can establish a competitive price for your house. He or she also will promote your house to the right groups of buyers and help you enjoy a quick, seamless home sale.

When it comes to selling your home, there is no need to leave anything to chance. Take advantage of the aforementioned tips, and you can avoid a nightmare home selling experience.
