Touch up those grubby marks and scuffs. Your decor needs to look fresh. Take a look at your walls. Has the dog made it dirty looking? Are there children’s handprints or crayon marks? It’s all really important. If you have the same paint, spend a couple of hours freshening it all up. One coat should be enough!
Is your paint work looking chipped? If so it is time to repair it. Often sanding it back and a simple repaint will work. If the chips are bit deeper, you might need to use some wood filler first. A home with smart woodwork including the skirting boards and door frames looks so much more appealing. Let’s be honest, you wouldn’t go on a night out with chipped nails with you?
How colourful are your walls? When selling your home you need to appeal to a wide audience. Lighter neutral walls do this. Lighter colours can make a room feel brighter and often bigger. Colour is often too personalised, although magnolia can be seen as boring! I love crisp white and soft greys. Let your buyers visualise themselves living there. Add colour through accessories and artwork instead!
I love wallpaper and I hate wallpaper. Wallpaper is a statement. But often a statement about you. We don’t all have the same tastes. We don’t all for example want purple walls! It can however also work very well. I have seen wallpaper actually sell homes. You can create impact. Choose it wisely and for selling success stick to just one feature wall!
Decorate your home wisely for selling success. I’ve seen decor done beautifully easily add an extra £5000 to a clients home, in this instance it was actually nearer £10,000.
