If you’re selling a home in Midland, you want to do what it takes to help it sell quickly (and for the best possible price). That may mean doing away with these interior decor trends that have lost their appeal with today’s buyers.

3 Interior Decor Trends That Have Lost Their Appeal

Check out these three interior decor trends that have lost their appeal among buyers:

  1. Wooden cabinets
  2. Closed-off floor plans
  3. Formal dining rooms

Here’s a closer look at each – and what you can do about them before you sell your home.

#1. Wooden Cabinets

You don’t have to rip out your cabinets and start fresh – but if you’d like to, talk to your real estate agent first. A project of that size might not pay off at the closing table.

An alternative to replacing cabinets is to sand them down and paint them, then install new hardware.

#2. Closed-Off Floor Plans

Classic closed floor plans are a turn-off for modern buyers, who prefer open spaces. Don’t start knocking down walls just yet, though. The best idea might be to repaint closed-off rooms in brighter colors and add a new lighting scheme.

#3. Formal Dining Rooms

Turn your dining room into a flex space – that’s what a lot of buyers want right now. Make it a home office that opens into the kitchen, an entertainment space or something else (talk to your agent about what will work best).
