Here, are 10 designer tricks to help you make any room look larger:

1. For the illusion of a larger room, use a color scheme that is light rather than bright or dark. Pastels, neutrals andfamilyroom_1280 white are all color possibilities.

2. Use a monochromatic color scheme on the furniture, rugs and walls. Select different shades and textures of your single color.

Pet Odors While Selling a Home

Don't Let it Derail Your Sale

Jacksonville, FL -

Air your house out. While you’re cleaning, throw open all the windows in your home to allow fresh air to circulate and sweep out unpleasant scents.

Once your house is free of pet odors, do what you can to keep the smells from returning. Crate your dog when you're out or keep it outdoors. Limit the cat to one floor or room, if possible. Remove or replace pet bedding.

Scrub thoroughly. Scrub bare floors and walls soiled by pets with vinegar, wood floor cleaner, or an odor-neutralizing product, which you can purchase at a pet supply store for $10 to $25.

Try a 1:9 bleach-to-water solution on surfaces it won’t damage, like cement floors or walls.

Do you want to sell your home for more money, well according to a new study by Redfin, a Seattle-based real estate brokerage, Professional Photography does just that. Redfin found in an analysis of more than 100,000 listings in the Boston metro area and Long Island, N.Y., that homes with professional photographs sold anywhere between $934 to $116,076 more than those shot from cheaper, point-and-shoot cameras. That’s probably enough to start making you feel a little insecure about your photographs if you’re not using a professional. What’s more, homes with professional photographs were found, on average, to be viewed 61 percent more online than others in that price range shot with a lower-end camera.

Just when you thought that your home inspector is someone you can trust!

When we were building our first home, we hired a home inspector to check out the work in progress. We did this because we wanted peace of mind- surely this trained professional would be much better equipped to catch construction errors than we were. It was our first home being built from the ground up, and we wanted to feel comfortable knowing that nothing would go wrong at the final walk through. However, during our frequent visits to the construction site, we would find discrepancies that our home inspector had missed. Things that were missed were problems such as the double sliding door to the patio was installed upside down; there were even doors placed on the wrong side of
