Both of the biggest home buying groups, Baby Boomers, and Millennials want luxury homes. But of the two groups, Baby Boomers are more likely to have the big budgets that are required for luxurious homes. That doesn’t mean that you can’t make an older home look more luxurious though. Adding updated features and making a few simple changes can make even a budget-friendly home look luxurious enough to attract home buyers that have expensive tastes but don’t have huge budgets. Here are a few tricks from professional stagers that will make any home look more luxurious and expensive and will help in sell your Edmonton Real Estate fast :

Update The Light Fixtures

Often light fixtures are not something that sellers really give much concern to but changing the light fixtures can change the whole atmosphere of the house. Putting modern light fixtures in trendy finishes like copper or brushed metal will instantly make the house look and feel updated and expensive.

Update the Window Coverings

Window coverings are another home feature that is an easy way to add a touch of luxury in a home. Replace blinds with Roman shades. Or add long sweeping expanses of curtains in rich materials that look expensive. Replace the curtain rods with modern metal rods and make sure that the windows are clean. With a simple update to the window coverings, the house will have a fresh, clean, modern and luxurious appearance.

Don’t Forget the Crown Molding

One of the features that draw in buyers to new homes is the expansive use of crown molding. Adding decorative molding in all the rooms and chair rails and decorative elements to formal spaces will give tired old rooms a totally classic look that buyers love. Give the walls and the molding a nice coat of paint to finish the transformation of an old room to a new beautiful space.

Think “Spa” For The Bathrooms

Luxurious bathrooms sell houses. But putting in a lot of luxury touches can be expensive. To make a bathroom look luxurious on a budget first make sure it’s shining clean. Get a professional team to clean the bathrooms from top to bottom so that they sparkle. Replace old faucets with modern faucets that have beautiful design elements. If possible update the sink and vanity to add more storage. Then replace all the towels and the shower curtain. Clean white cotton shower curtains and thick fluffy white towels will make any bathroom look more like a restful spa retreat. A soft bath mat also will add to the appeal of the bathroom. Old bathrooms should also be given a new coat of paint or clean white grout to make them seem brand new and expensive. A few plants and some strategically placed high-end bath products will impress buyers and make them more interested in the house.
