3 Ways to Make Your Home Look More Expensive

When you’re selling a home in Tampa Bay, you want it to look like a glamorous space that buyers would fight to pay top dollar for – and the good news is that even if your house isn’t ultra-glam or super-desirable, you can make it look that way.

Here’s how.

3 Ways to Make Your Home Look More Expensive

Use these tried-and-true design tips to make your house look more expensive (and more desirable to buyers):

  • Upgrade your hardware
  • Add more lighting (or upgrade what you have)
  • Declutter everywhere

#1. Upgrade your hardware.

Your cabinet hardware says a lot about how old your kitchen and bathrooms are. Even if they’re not old, they really date your space.

For very little cash, you can upgrade your cabinet and drawer hardware and add a modern splash to kitchens and bathrooms. Check out the closest hardware or home improvement store to see what’s hot.

Pro Tip: Upgrading your faucets goes a long way with buyers, too, so if you find one that’s affordable, it’s probably worth the investment!

#2. Add more lighting (or upgrade what you have).

Expert interior designers use light to make spaces look better, and you can do the same. Zero in on the areas you use in your home – maybe you have a reading nook in the bedroom, a conversation spot in the living room or a desk in the den. Light each one appropriately for the activities you do there: a table lamp for reading, sconces on the wall for socializing and task lighting on the desk.

#3. Declutter everywhere.

We’re not really into taking everything out of your space that doesn’t “spark joy,” but we do know from experience that the less cluttered your home is, the bigger it looks – and the faster it sells.

Take out anything you haven’t used in 6 months or more. That goes for every room, from the kitchen to the guest bedroom-slash-workout room.
