How to create a home through interior design which boosts your chance of selling it
So, you’re looking to squeeze every penny out of your house and rightly so; but what is the best way you can sell to ensure that you can have some sort of control?
Address any maintenance or repairs that need completing such as doorknobs, light bulbs, skirting board cracks etc. This makes for a well-cared-for house which is something many aspiring homeowners will wish to purchase.
Remove any unwarranted or excessive clutter that may be detrimental to how people view your property. A clean and organised space allows potential buyers to see every aspect of your house without any distractions - not forgetting to remove any pet-ownership marks and smells.
Think about what local elements are near you in your area, such as universities or hospitals. This will then allow you to consider what the demographic of potential buyers will be and then you can build from there.
An example is a suburban area that may cater to families more than students, allowing you to create family-friendly spaces.

Lighting can make a space feel warm and welcoming. The ambiance has such a small but important role to play when selling your house, as natural lighting mixed with well-placed lamps will allow potential buyers to picture themselves making your house their future home.
Whether that is a fresh lick of paint/gloss, replacing door handles, or new plants on the front lawn, sharpening up on the finer details of your home can be aesthetically pleasing for a potential buyer which can only go in your favour.

Arranging your furniture to create more of a welcoming appeal already puts the thought of "home" into a potential buyer’s head.
Avoid overcrowding rooms and always make sure that there are spaces for people to walk through no matter the size of the room.
Many viewers may look at your home as they want to upscale, so highlighting storage space such as cupboards, utility rooms and garages will give you an increased chance of selling.
The kitchen and bathroom play a huge part in whether a viewer will buy your property as these are key rooms, so make sure that everything is in order.
Ensure they are clean and in good repair, and remember that updated countertops, shower heads and hardware can make a big difference without a major renovation.
Subtle candles and home fragrances can spruce up the smell inside your home whilst eradicating any unwanted pet or cooking smells and add to the ambiance of the room.
