One of the quickest ways to make your house look more relaxing and appealing is by making it look brighter. The easiest way to do this is by opening up windows to let in the light; try removing curtains and see how that act alone can get rid of a room's heavy atmosphere. Whenever you are entertaining a potential buyer, remove or tie back curtains as this can help make the room much brighter. Letting in views from the outside also makes the room look bigger and much more spacious than it really is. If you really need to use curtains for privacy, try going with light fabrics or sheer lace that can obstruct views but still allow light to pass through. Avoid using thick fabrics and heavy drapery as these not only block light but also give rooms a stifling atmosphere.
Another thing that can guarantee interest from buyers is including special details in your home that make it look all the more luxurious to live in. For instance, placing a basket filled with rolled towels tied with pretty ribbons and packets of scented soaps, creams, and lotions can make your bathroom seem more like a spa than a place for maintaining hygiene. A vase of fresh flowers waiting to greet prospective buyers with a sweet floral scent can make your house all the more inviting, and a collection of colourful cookbooks and bowls of shining, fresh fruit in the kitchen can help make your guests more enthusiastic about cooking meals there. These little tricks don't cost much but they can have great effects on the appeal of your house. Remember, it's all in the details.
Lastly, selling your house does not depend entirely on how it looks. It's also affected by how you present it. Make sure you exude a cheerful vibe when selling because talking about your favourite room in the house won't be as convincing when you're looking sullen, or worse, impatient. Be enthusiastic when showing prospective buyers why you love the house and you'll be sure to get great price for your property in a short amount of time.
