Top 5 Tips to Add Finishing Touches to Your Living Space
There’s no denying that when it comes to selling a property, presentation is everything! But sometimes adding the right finishing touches can be easier said than done. Thankfully, we are here to give you the breakdown on the top five tips to make your property stand out from the competition.
We know that it’s what is on the inside counts, but sometimes there are exceptions. Your property’s exterior is one of them. Optimising your property’s street appeal is a great way to make your house feel like a home. You can achieve this instantly with a lush garden space. Going green is surprisingly easy. Taking time for the little things like trimming your hedges, painting the fences and mowing the lawn can make a huge difference. Don’t have a garden? We have the perfect solution. Create a defined pathway with potted plants or a welcome mat. By framing your entrance, the space is immediately taken from being a property to a potential home.
Nothing shrinks a space more than clutter. When presenting a property giving the illusion of space is paramount. A common mistake is having oversized furniture, such as a large sofa or dining table, that blocks the flow from living to dining. Items such as photo frames and figurines reduce the available space and should be removed before presenting your property. Make sure to decrease the number of excess or decorative pieces hanging around by asking yourself if they serve a stylistic purpose. If the answer is no, time to put it in storage.
Keep it clean
Everyday life can get messy, but that doesn’t mean your place should be. Buyers want to see your property at its most ideal state. That is why your day-to-day items have got to go. Any laundry, paperwork, dishes, keys or garbage needs to be removed before the inspection. The cleaner the property is the more loved and cared for it appears. Buyers are more willing to see potential in a property if its prior owners took pride in it, which is why this factor shouldn’t be overlooked.
The ideal atmosphere buyers are looking for is airy, light and spacious. Set up well in advance to your open-house by opening the curtains and blinds, optimising your natural light. Keep the environment as comfortable as possible by turning on the heating or air conditioning and making sure every room is well lit either naturally or by candles and lamps. Not only does this make the property more welcoming but it demonstrates the functionality of your amenities.
Aim to impress
First impressions can make or break a sale. For your hallway invest in a runner rug and add a decorative mirror or piece of bright artwork. The focus of your property styling should be on displaying your space as a welcoming and warm environment. A great way to do this is by dressing up a table with flowers and scented candles. If you are more creatively inclined utilise ornaments and indoor foliage to show off your artistic flare. Regardless of the approach the key takeaway to remember is the need to present a lifestyle within the styling that is consistent with your audience.
