Spring is here; the nights are getting lighter and everything’s starting to look a bit livelier again. The same should go for your property and if you’re looking to sell then there are a few spring-time habits you can adopt to get your surroundings in tip-top condition.
Renewal and fresh starts sum up spring, so here’s a few tips for bringing some seasonal changes to your property.
After the dark and drab winter months, you need to inject a bit of colour into your property. Splashes of colour can work really well in your home, especially more spring-like tones. Leafy greens, mustard yellows and dusty pinks are just a few colours that add some natural, healthy vibrancy to your surroundings. This can make your home look more interesting and creative.
You don’t necessarily have to re-decorate either – you can bring out some colour with cushions, curtains, throws and rugs and rotate colours from season to season.
Declutter your space
There’s one big thing that people associate with spring – cleaning! It’s a great time to throw out old stuff and bring some new ideas and perspectives into your property. Decluttering your home is a good habit to get into anyway, but when you’re looking to sell, it can help you to get organised and utilise the space you have to show off to potential buyers.
Buyers are put off by cluttered, messy rooms and if you keep things minimalist then it’s easier for people to imagine themselves living in your property.
Bring the outdoors in
Lovely things start growing again in spring, so why not take advantage of some of the fresh flowers and plants that you can get hold of and scatter them around your property. Having plants in your house helps to make things look more visually attractive and you can bring a bit of nature indoors too.
Having plants and flowers in the rooms that lead out into your garden is a great way to accentuate your garden’s features.
Change things up a bit
There’s no time quite like spring for changing things around and working with the spaces in your home. Why not rearrange your furniture and switch things around, so you can see if you’re really making the most of the best features your property has to offer.
Moving your furniture around can give you more space and the number one things that potential buyers are looking for is space. You might have items that are blocking lots of natural light into your rooms too. Use mirrors to create an illusion of more space too.
Fresh colours, plants and ideas are some of the best ways to give your property a new lease of life and get it looking its best for the months ahead.
