There is a saying that kitchens and bathrooms are what sell homes – whether this is true or not, certainly making sure these places look their best, and are presented in a modern and stylish manner is what could grab a prospective buyers’ attention to your home. According to Shayanna Blaze (interior designer) you do not need a full renovation, you could always get away with inexpensive changes like new handles, bench top, sink, taps as well as covering old or outdated splashbacks with new surfaces.
Getting a paint job could be a bit expensive but often it can be well worth it in the end. It leaves your place looking brand new and fresh. Always try sticking to neutral colours when it comes to getting a paint job. Soft whites, beige, grey and even black leaves the place not only looking modern but these are colours that are the easiest to blend and co-ordinate with.
Try not to have a cluttered room, this leaves the home looking spacious, clean and fresh. Make sure all surfaces and cupboards are cleared up. No one wants to see a room that is full of unnecessary clutter. Shayanna Blaze says, while everything might look great, her biggest hate is what you can’t actually see, but what you can smell! So it can help to have your carpets and rugs steam cleaned in advance and keep any pets you have away during any open home inspections. The smell of animals can sometimes be a big turnoff for prospective buyers.
Add some vanilla scented candles, mood reeds or an essential oil diffuser (available at Dusk at Westfield North Lakes and other home style retailers) to leave a clean scent instead –
