When staging, choose blinds or shades in neutral colors. Because they’re not visually distracting, they can help prospective buyers picture themselves living in the home. If you want to add a strong focal point, layer window treatments with bold colored curtains and valances.

Homeowners and home sellers both want to create the perfect living space. American Blinds, Wallpaper and More , the leader in home décor for over fifty years, offers tips on making a house a home whether it’s going on the market or remaining a permanent residence.
Staging a home for sale? Curb appeal doesn’t end at the curb. Indoor window treatments viewed from the outside can make a lasting impression to a prospective buyer. American Blinds, Wallpaper and More has just the right window coverings to complement every decorating style. New blinds and draperies not only attract attention, but can maximize the return at resale and sell the property faster. Manage cash flow while staging a home using deferred payments with Bill Me Later®. Make a home memorable that buyers will put at the top of their list.
Tip: With lower ceilings, hang draperies and valances higher than the window to create the illusion of height. Make smaller spaces seem larger by opening blinds and drapes allowing light to flow into a room.
Rachel Rutledge, Product Merchandising Manager at American Blinds, Wallpaper and More says, “When staging, choose blinds or shades in neutral colors. Because they’re not visually distracting, they can help prospective buyers picture themselves living in the home.
