Are you planning on putting your house on the market this summer? If so, prepare to dress your home for success. When you are selling a home it is all about style, but not necessarily your own style. This is what makes staging different from interior design and can also make it more challenging. When you stage a home, you want to create an ambiance and lifestyle that appeals to all tastes and styles. Potential buyers need to feel as though they can make the home their own when they purchase it, even though the furnishings and accessories won’t be there when they move in. Homes that are staged sell 50% faster and for 6% more than homes without staging. Read below for some styling tips that will help you see results quickly.

How to Select a Paint Finish

When choosing a paint for your latest project, the decisions don’t end with color. The finish you choose is just as important.  If you are unfamiliar, “finish” (or sheen) refers to the amount of shine the paint will have when it dries. Below is a list of all paint finishes available in Benjamin Moore Paints. These are listed from the least amount of sheen (flat) to the highest amount of sheen (high gloss).  A flat paint has no light reflection and each sheen will gradually show more reflection the further you go across this list.

Flat → Matte → Eggshell → Pearl → Satin → Semi-Gloss → Gloss → High gloss
