When it comes to selling or letting your property, first impressions matter. Everything should be perfect to attract and impress potential tenants or buyers. Here are some easy interior design tips that can really increase the value of your home, whether you’re looking to sell or let it.
Make a good first impression
Make a statement to potential buyers and tenants as soon as they step into your property by sprucing your entryway. A fresh coat of paint combined with modern light fixtures will set the tone of your home. Making your entrance brighter will also add the illusion of a bigger space and will have a big impact on potential buyers and tenants’ first impressions.
Stay colour neutral
You may love the idea of having a bold wallpaper in your kitchen or in your living room but keep in mind that a neutral look is likely to appeal to more potential buyers and tenants. If your walls are looking a bit tired, a fresh coat of paint can really make a difference to the look of your home. Essentially, it’s all about making your property look modern, clean and fresh.
Quality over quantity
When decorating your home you also need to pick durable furniture, décor elements and appliances that will withstand the test of time. Focus on the quality of the materials used especially if you’re looking to let your property. Buying cheap furniture and appliances that will need replacing will end up being more costly on the long term.
Play with the lights
Start by focusing on natural light and make the most out of it. Show off your windows by leaving them uncovered to bring in more sunlight during the day. It will draw the eye to the outdoors and will also make your rooms feel bigger than they actually are. You should also consider adding some artificial lights. Using illumination as a background element in the shelves of your living room can add a stylish touch to the feel of the room.
Small details can make a difference
There’s a lot of competition on the housing market so you will need to find ways to make your home stand out from the crowd. Adding stylish design elements to your living room or your kitchen such as a modern painting or a nicely designed decoration on the table can make a big impact on the look and feel of your house. Small details can actually make a big difference when it comes to attracting buyers and tenants, especially if they are hesitating between two properties.
