Home Staging and Window Treatments
CREATE THE WOW FACTOR
When you put your home up for sale, there is so such to be done, including staging for potential home buyers. According to Realtor.com, “Curtains are one of the most underused resources when preparing a home for sale, experts say. The right set of curtains or drapes can make or break some home sales—especially when it comes to transforming a room into the staged version you want your buyers to see.”
One of our customers, Michael V., was putting his Arizona home on the market and wanted to make some upgrades to his windows. He worked with our friendly customer service team and ordered several products including the 85000 curtain track, both ceiling and wall mount options and available in white, silver, and black, for the windows and closets in his home. He then added floor to ceiling curtains.
Along with curtain track 85000, he also used 84106 Wheeled Snap Carrier - Corded For Ripplefold and the team at Curtain-Tracks helped Michael by doing 60% fullness ripple fold styling for this project. Curtain fullness refers to the number of ripples or folds when the curtains are pulled closed.
When staging your home, Coldwell Banker suggests, "Installing curtains and blinds as close to the ceiling as possible draws the eye up and makes the room appear bigger. Panels should skim the floor." Michael did just that in every single room and the end result is fantastic!
In one room, Michael removed the old closet doors and added curtains on the 85000 track. Viola! Closet curtains! Replacing dated closet doors and adding a stylish curtain can create a completely new, fresh look for the entire room.
As he was preparing his home to be sold, he didn't just upgrade his window treatments, he also created a new look in the bathroom by adding aluminum track 88001, which is available in 6 foot, 8 foot, 12 foot and 16 foot sections. He used 88102 Privacy Cubicle Two Wheel Carrier with Ball Chain & Hooks and added a robin's egg blue shower curtain.
Michael's efforts paid off. He recently contacted us to say, "I had 3 offers in 2 days of showings and just accepted one above asking price. In part thanks to your awesome curtains!" Thanks, Michael. You certainly created the Wow factor. We are so happy for you and wish you much happiness in your new home!
