The décor of your home is one of the first things a prospective buyer notices when selling your home. Follow these 7 tips to make sure your home’s first impression is a good one.
De-clutter the bedroom.
Ensure your master bedroom creates a feeling of relaxation and peace by removing unnecessary clutter and personal items. Neutral tones and fresh linens will turn your boudoir into an inviting sanctuary.
Mix up the flooring.
Contrary to popular belief, having one type of flooring in a house can actually be a “double edged sword”. Yes, it can make a space feel larger and more unified, but this can also create undefined spaces which lack warmth and visual interest, particularly if character like original floorboards are hidden underneath.
Go towards the light – avoid an overly dark colour scheme.
Stick to a light and bright colour scheme to attract more buyers and create a feeling of space in your home.
Bring your furniture in for a group huddle.
Bringing your furniture away from the walls helps create a feeling of intimacy, so unless it’s a “naughty corner” chair, shuffle the furniture in.
Hang your art at eye level.
The average eye level is 150 centimetres from the ground, so always aim for the middle of your artwork to hit at this level.
Mirror, mirror on the wall.
Natural light creates the ultimate feeling of space, but if this isn’t possible, get your hands on some large mirrors to replicate the feeling and give the illusion of a larger space.
Think big when it comes to rugs.
A good rule of thumb is to go for the largest rug you can afford for your space. Make sure you allow for extra overhang around furniture, like dining tables, so that the chairs stay on the rug too.
