The first impression of your home can be absolutely vital if you are looking to sell. When we first put our house on the market, we were unable to attract as many viewers as we would have liked. After much thought and discussion, we decided to repaint our children’s bedrooms and declutter as much as we could to make the room look cleaner and brighter.
Many buyers will judge your home by the photos of the house either on property search websites or the estate agent’s brochure, and it can be very difficult to turn around a first impression! There is a lot to be said for a neat and appealing appearance to your home, whether it is a small change or something a little bigger. After we repainted their rooms, it made such a huge difference! We got more viewers to view the house and we were sold within two months.
If you have a garage door, ensure it is in great condition and even consider repainting or replacing it. If you’re looking to do something a little more extravagant, replacing the front door to your home can transform its appearance! Adding value to your home has never been easier, but make sure you weigh up the costs and rewards before you begin to knock any walls down!
Another way to make your house more appealing is to add ceiling lights from Cox&Cox, like a classy chandelier to wow your buyers! Dim rooms or those that are poorly lit can feel dingy and claustrophobic. Adding elegant lighting will bring much brightness into the room and change the look and feel of a room.
Also, consider replacing or adding colourful plants and flowers into your home. Invest in some nice house plants, in both small and larger varieties as they will bring colour and texture into your home. Not only that, they can help to improve the air quality and give you a sense of being outdoors even when you’re inside. Fresh flowers are another fantastic option, and something nice that you can treat yourself to every now and again.
If you’re not a plant person, then why not add wall art and pictures to bring your home to life. So what would you do to improve the first impression of your home? Comment below and let me know.
