As soon as she steps into your home, Shelly notices what's beneath her feet. "Flooring is a major item. If carpet is dated/worn/sagging/etc, it really devalues the home," Shelly says. So, instead of using that area rug that has probably seen better days, opt for a brand new design in a fun print, or if you want to really get creative, try adding hardwoods in a funky color. Shelly will notice!
