There are many things that will have an impact on the sale of your home.

Of course, it goes without saying that you are utterly at the mercy of the property market. Other things that obviously have an impact on how quickly your home sells is it’s location, it’s condition, and of course the estate agent you instruct to help you to sell it.

But have you ever thought about the ways in which interior design could have an enormous impact on the speed at which you can sell property? You might be surprised to hear just how important it can be!

Today, we’re going to be sharing our top interior design tips with you, that will help you to sell your home, not only quickly, but for the best possible price.

Neutralise Your Colour Scheme

Ask any Makler, and they will tell you that in order to sell your home efficiently, one of the easiest and most effective things you can do is to neutralise the colour scheme of the property.

The first problem with colour schemes that are too bright, designs that are too edgy, and patterns that are too bold, is that they aren’t for everyone. Whereas some buyers may love your taste, others may entirely differ, and therefore the design inside of the property could actually end up putting them off altogether.

The other issue with bold and bright decoration, is that it can make a small space – and even a larger space – seem smaller than it actually is. Now, ask any industry professional, and they’ll tell you that one of the key requirements in many potential buyer’s minds, is that there is plenty of space. You don’t want to minimalize that simply by not being thoughtful about interior design, do you?

So, with that in mind, simply go out and purchase some neutral coloured paint. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to look chic, either. Earthy tones, stones and creams work equally well, so choose your neutral vibe and go with it. Trust us.

Revitalise Your Kitchen

The kitchen is often thought of as the heart of the home. It is where the whole family get their sustenance, after all, isn’t it? Not only this, but it’s often thought of as one of the selling points of a property, so if yours could do with a little make over, then we suggest you listen up.

Renovating a kitchen in its’ entirety is, let’s face it, expensive. It’s not something many of us can afford to do just for the sake of selling, however, there are things that we can do to help make the kitchen look newer, and to give it more of a modern feel.

One of the first things that people notice when they step foot into your kitchen is its cleanliness, so before you do ANYTHING, ensure you give it a top to bottom clean.

Another thing everyone will notice immediately, are your cabinets. They’re potentially the most important part of your kitchen.

Now luckily, you don’t have to replace them – but you can upgrade them! A simple sand and paint job, or even purchasing some sticky back paper to go over it will make it look newer. Plus, if it’s an unattractive colour at present, you may want to neutralise it, for all of the reasons we have listed above.

If you are going to get something new fitted, we would recommend it be under cabinet lighting. Not only is it extremely practical, but it can take a kitchen from an old fashioned pantry into a chic bistro in, quite literally, the flick of a switch. Potential buyers will love it!

Accessorise, and Do it Well!

Last of all, but by no means least, the cherry on top of any kind of interior design in all of the rooms of your house, is to accessorise.

We would say accessorising is completely underrated for the affect it has. Whether it’s adorning your sofa with throws, dressing your bed with cushions, or changing up your curtains with the seasons, it really doesn’t matter! If you’re after a simple freshen up, then a house plant or two will do the job. Go as big or small as you want to in the accessories department.

Just ensure to follow the two golden rules:

  1. Do NOT overcrowd, or your home will look cluttered.
  2. Ensure that everything either matches, or compliments each other.

If you follow these two golden rules, you can’t go far wrong.
