Remember the last time you visited an upscale furniture showroom?

 The furniture and fixtures on display probably looked great. The colours and textures jumped out at you. It was a feast for the eyes! There is a good reason for this: lighting.

 Of course, the quality of the products has a lot to do with how appealing they look when on display. But smart retailers know that proper lighting is key to making those products look their best. In fact, some retailers even hire lighting consultants!

 What does this have to do with selling your home quickly, and for the best price? Obviously, when showing your property to potential buyers, you want your home to look its very best. Proper lighting can be a big help.

 When preparing your home for sale, review the lighting in each room and make sure the space is sufficiently well lit. You want the lighting to be strong enough to prevent dark or shadowy areas, yet not so strong that it's uncomfortable for the eyes.

 As a rule of thumb, the total wattage of lights in a room should equal the room's square footage times 1.5. So, if a room is 120 square feet and has three light sources (ceiling light and two lamps) then the bulbs in each should be 60 watts.

 Pay particular attention to traditionally dark areas, such as the garage, basement, and closets. Make sure those areas are well lit. If you have a viewing scheduled during the day, take advantage of natural light through windows. Open the curtains!

 Finally, one of the most important areas is the foyer. Always make sure the entrance has sufficient lighting. You don't want buyers to think they've entered the home of classic TV's The Adam's Family! Want more ideas for preparing your home for sale? Call today.
