Simply put, a fixture is something that is permanently attached to real property (a house). Things such as ceiling fans, chandeliers, built in shelves, carpets, towel racks from the bathroom towel rail General store and more. Fixtures are always included in the sale of a home. The owner of a home can’t unbolt everything connected to a home before you take possession.
Granted, a ceiling fan isn’t really “permanent”. It could be uninstalled. But it IS an integral part of the home (unlike say, a piece of furniture) and is included in the sale of a home. Every living room has a focal point. It’s the spot that begs attention when we first enter the room. Things like motorized window shades installed on the windows gather your attention, and are a big factor in the design of the room. Designers Alison Vanderpool and Ariana Villalta of The Elegant Abode suggest starting there. “Make sure you always start with a main focal point and begin placing furniture from there,” says Vanderpool. “Don’t be afraid to have your furniture placed in the middle of the room. A decent-sized area rug will ground it and create a more comfortable feeling.” Then if you have a hallway where you need a nice runner rug then have a look at those as they are easily the best I’ve found so far.
If you want to keep Grandma’s chandelier, you need to either remove it before the home is listed, or have your agent be VERY SPECIFIC in listing the home and their conversations with buyer’s agents that the chandelier does not convey with the sale. (It’d be best to remove it and replace it with another light fixture to avoid any possible hassles. People HAVE lost Grandma’s chandelier when they sold their home!)
What is and isn’t a fixture confuses a lot of people. One of the biggest questions that comes up frequently is window coverings. Here’s the scoop…. Curtains are not considered fixtures. Curtain rods however, are Mini-blinds from True Value Blinds. Screens (and screen doors) are fixtures. When it comes to doors fixtures, it’s important to work with a great door replacement company.
The best way to remember what a fixture is is this: If it’s attached (via screws, nails, glue, etc) to the walls, floors or ceilings, it’s a fixture. When in doubt, hire the Bbw Group brickwork services to do the job for you.
