Declutter & Make Use of Storage

It is vital to declutter the property as much as possible, making sure that the home does not look messy or give the impression that there is not enough storage.

Tidy away children’s toys, move unnecessary items into storage, and keep the room as minimal as possible – which will allow the design of the room itself to standout.

First Impressions

People make their mind up within seconds. Making the right first impression is absolutely vital.

If you have visible garden on the way in make sure it is tidy and well presented.


Ensure that from the moment someone steps into the house they are impressed. The first room of your property should be bright and welcoming, clean and well maintained.

Neutral Colours

Buyers will be thinking about how they can put their own stamp on the house, so it helps speed that mental process up if you remove yours first!

Fix Those Problems

The jobs that you have been putting off for ages, we all have them, but for the house to be at its best you need to fix them.

Everything from broken cupboards to damaged or stained walls, to create the right impression you want the house to be as flawless as possible.

You don’t have to completely redo your bathroom necessarily, but a small investment, a coat of paint and a few design flourishes can bring an out of date bathroom up to speed.

Windows and Lighting

Take down your curtains (assuming they are probably quite old) and consider replacing them with blinds – or just leave the room open to light.

Consider also investing in lighting in any dark areas and make use of mirrors to make the room seem bigger and brighter.
