How to prepare your home ready for photo day!

Posted on Monday, September 17, 2018

It’s true.  A photo speaks a thousand words.  Great photos attract buyers.  Poor photos can actually put them off.  At JDG we believe in crystal clear photography that shows off the whole room.  Here are our some of top tips to help you get ready for your photo shoot!


The kitchen

Clear your workspaces of clutter, jars and food.  Hideaway the dustbin.  Remove the dish liquid and tea towels.

Add flowers and a bowl of fruit



The bathroom

Put down the toilet seat, remove the everyday shampoo bottles, laundry bin and any spare loo rolls.

Display fresh towels and some posh looking toiletries!



The bedrooms

Clear away any clothes and shoes.  Make sure the bedside tables are tidy and nothing is peeping out from under the bed. Clear off anything that is stored on wardrobe tops.

Dress your bed in your best linen and add a luxury look with plump cushions



Those general area’s

Clean your windows.  Make sure your curtains and blinds are open.  Hideaway any wires that look unsightly. Tidy away the kid's toys and signs of pets.

Light the fire.  Turn on your lights.  Plump up the cushions



Outside your home

Move your car from the drive or house front.  Tidy the garden, and sweep away the leaves.  Move the wheelie bins.  Clean the front door.

Add colour with seasonal planting.
