4 Lighting Tips for Selling Your House in Autumn, Red Wing, Minnesota

Fall is a beautiful time of year for selling your house. As the golden sunlight filters in through the colorful leaves, it naturally brightens each room and adds a touch of elegance. However, without the proper preparations, it can be difficult to figure out how to let in more light.

How to Let in More Light When Selling Your House

1. Trim Back Trees

Thick branches and clusters of leaves can instantly reduce the amount of sunlight that gets into the home. Cutting a few of them back is the best way to increase the room’s brightness. If it’s on the first floor, you may have to trim down the shrubs in the garden to prevent them from blocking the sun.

2. Clear the Windowsills

selling your houseWhile plants and other decorative items can spruce up a space, placing them on the windowsill will only serve to diminish the light. Allow homebuyers to see the room’s full potential by placing your belongings out of sight and keeping the windows clear.

3. Install Window Treatments

Several products can help to enhance the appearance of the sunlight. For example, sheer fabrics can soften the beams and disperse them evenly to create a welcoming atmosphere. Linen curtains hang from either side of the window and add a colorful aspect to the light as it filters through the windows.

4. Clean the Glass

Spots and smudges along the surface of the glass tend to make rooms feel dirty. Before a showing, wash both sides of the windowpane, using a microfiber cloth to eliminate streaks. The clear glass will create a seamless transition to the outdoors and make the space feel slightly bigger.
