Selling Your Home in Lakewood? Skip These 5 Decorating Trends

If you’re selling your home in Lakewood or Long Beach, you’re going to have to do a few things about the way it looks - and unfortunately, that may mean undoing a few of the trends you’ve hopped on-board with.

Selling Your Home in Lakewood? Skip These 5 Decorating Trends

You may have to undo these trendy decorative elements if you’re selling a home:

  • Wallpaper

  • Creative tile

  • White walls

  • Bright statement doors

  • Brass fixtures


While unique wallpaper is “in” right now, you need your home to be as appealing as possible to potential buyers - and that means taking down your wallpaper and opting to paint your walls in neutral colors.

Creative Tile

Patterned tile on the floor or on the walls is super-trendy at the moment, but it can prevent buyers from starting with a fresh slate. They may not be able to see all the potential your home has when it has creative, unique tile.

White Walls

It’s been true for a long time - plain, white walls are too stark and hospital-like to appeal to a wide range of buyers. White lacks warmth, so talk to your Realtor(R) about what neutral colors are more appealing to prospective buyers.

Bright Statement Doors

Bright statement doors are hot right now, but who’s to say that your potential buyers will have the same taste you do? Unfortunately, yours might be putting people off as soon as they pull up to the curb.

Brass Fixtures

A few years ago, stainless steel fixtures were in. Now, it’s brass. But do yourself a favor and stick with things that appeal to as many people as possible by switching to neutral-colored metal fixtures - not everyone likes brass, and it’s an attention-grabber.
