What would you think if we said you could attract wealthier buyers, sell your home faster, and achieve a higher price without a major investment?
There’s an art to staging rooms professionally, but the payoff is huge for getting it right. Your home can rise above the crowd as a standout listing, creating enough excitement for buyers to pay a premium.
So for this week’s blog, we’re sharing our styling techniques along with tips from interior designers and professional photographers to get a picture-perfect look, including expert advice on:
The good news is that you can often use items you already own to make every room in your home look more expensive, so let’s explore where to find and add those valuable touches of magic.
For most homes, the entrance hall is a buyer’s first taste of the interior, so it makes sense to give them a calm and warm welcome, rather than a chaotic greeting.
Finally, if your hall still feels a bit bare, hang some photos, pictures or prints to add life, colour and character - as a bonus, they also prevent your walls from getting scuffed by your viewers.
Adding tactile cushions and throws to your sofa and armchairs is a surefire way to glam up a living room, but it’s not the only trick in the book.
Sellers sometimes ask us if they should present a fully laid table with cutlery and crockery, but it can make your buyers feel like they’re holding up your dining plans, so keep it simple and natural.
Unless you’re a hardcore minimalist, work surfaces look better when they’re styled, rather than completely bare. So here’s what to remove and what to show off.
Ultimately, your goal is to present a well-ordered, functional and beautiful kitchen that buyers can see is a joy to use and a space they can’t wait to own.
When it comes to creating bedrooms that sell, no one is more expert than hotels: they know that a sumptuous sanctuary of sleep is what captures clients and cash.
So here are some of their tricks that work in double, single and spare rooms.
Finally, how does it sound when you speak into the air? If there’s any hint of an echo, adding a thick-pile rug will soften the acoustic into a dreamy haven.
Full of hard surfaces like tiles, taps and porcelain, even the most expensive bathrooms can feel cold and uninviting. But with a few inspired touches, you swap austere for opulence.
Whether it’s for a long and luxurious soak or an invigorating morning shower, accessorising your bathroom to create spa-like surroundings will help you truly clean up when you sell.
