5. Light + Flowers = One Amazing Home Showing

Hoping to make your home look appealing? The windows are actually key to making that happen. Take a closer look at your windows. If they’re bare, you may have a problem. Bare windows are not an appealing or inviting look to a room.  If you have any windows in your home that don’t have curtains or draperies on them, consider getting some.  This doesn’t have to be an expensive venture.  Plenty of inexpensive options are available.

But What About Natural Light?

While you want window treatments on most of the windows in your home during a showing, you will also want to leave them open and not closed.  Surveys have found that among the top five things prospective homebuyers look for in a home is natural light.  You want to showcase the natural light in your home, but you also want to have pretty window coverings for times when you want to block out the sun and/or want a modicum of privacy.  You can choose curtains, various types of blinds, or draperies (in some rooms).  The look should be aesthetically pleasing, as well as functional, to promote the best traits of the windows in your home.

One Last Touch: Colourful Plants and Flowers 

How the windows look certainly matters, but there’s one other touch you can add. Utilising colourful, fresh flowers and plants can go a long way toward enhancing your home for a public viewing.  Fragrant fresh flowers can also help hide minimal bad odours that might be in your home.  Plants and colorful flowers always make rooms look more alive.  Remember to change the water every few days for fresh flowers to last longer.  A colourful bouquet set on a table in front of a window can make excellent use of that space. 

It doesn’t take much to make your home inviting, but a few little touches can go a long way. To get more tips about how to make your home a bit more marketable, contact Doorsteps today!
