The headboard has become an integral part of bedroom furniture in the contemporary bedroom. Often the centerpiece of a bedroom, there are many design options available to you. Some are simple and understated. Others may feature cushioned back support, storage functions or built-in reading lights.

Wooden

Wooden headboards are a classic and timeless choice. Traditional wooden styles can take center stage or be beautifully understated, letting your bedding or other design features take the spotlight. Youíll find paneled options, mission, spindle or sleigh styles and even variations that incorporate shelving or drawers for storage. Modern options could use simple shapes that highlight rustic or distressed finishes.

A wooden headboard doesnít have to be traditional. For a more unusual wooden option, consider repurposing an intricate antique door or a hand-carved medallion. 

Upholstered

Upholstered headboards are often finished with fine textiles like velvet and satin but they can also be found in leather or leather-like materials. There are plenty of understated styles that come in standard sizes but many upholstered headboards are quite large and can become a natural focal point for the room. Sophisticated details like brass nailheads or thick piping are often used in these designs.

There are DIY options available that can show you how to add upholstery to an existing headboard. Consider this option if you already have a headboard that is a size that fits your space well.

Paint or Textiles

If your room is on the smaller side and you want to conserve space, incorporate a headboard that is either painted on the wall or created with hanging textiles.

If you opt to paint, carefully measure and draw your design on the wall where the head of your bed will be. Use painters tape to achieve a crisp line. Itís easy to repaint if you change your color scheme or bedroom style so this is a good option if you often like to refresh your space.

If textiles are a better fit for you, consider installing a decorative curtain rod near the ceiling line above your bed. You can use the curtain rod to hang curtains, tapestries or even macrame or woven pieces. If you have a few bedding sets that you cycle through, this gives you the flexibility to easily update the hanging textile to match.

A buyer's market can challenge even the most diligent home seller. Fortunately, we're here to help you stir up plenty of interest in your house, regardless of the current housing market's conditions.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you get ready to sell your residence in a buyer's market.

1. Assess the Housing Market

You know a buyer's market favors homebuyers over home sellers, but you still have no idea how this market operates. Fortunately, if you allocate time and resources to learn about the local real estate sector, you'll be better equipped than ever before to maximize the value of your home.

Take a look at the prices of recently sold houses in your city or town. That way, you can see how long these homes are generally available before they sell. You also can examine the sold prices of these houses to better understand how you should price your residence.

Furthermore, you should assess the prices of available houses in your city or town that are similar to your own. This housing market data can help you establish a competitive price for your residence from day one.

2. Perform a Home Inspection

A home inspection commonly is performed after a seller accepts a buyer's offer on a house. However, if you perform an inspection before you add your residence to a buyer's market, you can take a proactive approach to address various home problems.

During a home inspection, a property expert will examine your residence and detail his or her findings. You then can use the home inspection results to prioritize home improvement projects and upgrade your residence. As a result, you can enhance your house and find ways to differentiate it from the competition.

3. Consult with a Real Estate Agent

Selling a home in a buyer's market is exceedingly difficult, especially for those who choose to work alone. Thankfully, real estate agents are available to guide you along the home selling journey and ensure you can achieve the optimal results.

By hiring a real estate agent, you can receive extensive assistance at each stage of the home selling journey, even in a buyer's market. First, a real estate agent will learn about you and your home, as well as your home selling goals. This housing market professional then will offer recommendations to help you enhance your home and ensure it stands out to potential buyers. Next, a real estate agent will list your residence and host open house events and home showings. And if a buyer submits an offer on your house, a real estate agent will help you review this proposal and make an informed decision.

When it comes to selling a home in a buyer's market, there is no need to worry. Take advantage of the aforementioned tips, and you can separate your residence from the competition and boost the likelihood of a profitable home sale.

Does your bathroom look vintage but not in a cool or trendy sort of way? If so, and you don’t have the resources or time to give your bathroom a complete remodel, you can make some minor changes to your bathroom to freshen it up.

For instance, you can plan a weekend DIY project to refinish your bathroom cabinets and give them an updated look. All you need is a few materials, paint and some elbow grease.

Materials you’ll need:

Fine grade sandpaper, water-resistant (durable) paint, primer, painters’ tape, small tarp or drop cloth, small paintbrush, small roller and a screwdriver. 

If you’re looking to replace your visible hardware (an easy task and gives it some modern flair!), you’ll also need some new knobs and/or pulls.

Once you’ve gathered your tools and materials together, you can get started.

Step 1: Remove the hardware and position painters’ tape

Unscrew all of the cabinet’s hardware so you can remove any drawers, along with the cabinet door(s). Put these aside and lay them flat on the tarp or drop cloth in preparation for painting. Next, use painters’ tape to cover any areas you don’t want to accidentally get paint on.

Tip: Place any screws and other pieces in a small baggie so they don’t get lost.

Step 2: Sand down all surfaces

Take the sandpaper and gently sand down the cabinet, door and drawer surfaces. Next, thoroughly wipe them down to remove any residual dust, grime or dirt.

Step 3: Prime the cabinet

Once the drawers are clean, you’re ready to prime your surface. Give it a good coat, you might need two, depending on the current stain or paint of your cabinet. Let the primer completely dry.

Step 4: Paint the cabinet

Take your roller and paint the larger surfaces of your cabinet, including the front of the door(s) and drawers. Use the small paintbrush to catch any details the roller can’t properly reach. If there are still some tight grooves or other areas left the paintbrush can’t adequately cover, try using a craft paintbrush to dab the paint onto these areas. Let all surfaces thoroughly dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary.

Keep in mind, if you go with an oil-based paint, which tends to last longer and is more durable, you’ll need extra time for the paint to dry, along with good ventilation. If not, you can go with a semi-gloss or satin paint that doesn’t have the same strong odor.

Step 5: Reattach door(s) & drawers

Reattach any hardware that was removed earlier and then re-screw the door(s) and drawers back onto the cabinet. If you really want a completely new look, go ahead and replace those knobs and/or pulls.

A new coat of paint can do wonders for any old bathroom, especially if a replacement isn’t in your near future. Try this easy makeover and see what a difference it really makes.
