How to prepare your home for a property styling makeover?


Preparing your home for a property styling makeover is an exciting process and can be overwhelming. Property styling is the process of making a home look and feel inviting, attractive, and marketable to potential buyers. It involves staging furniture, accessories, artwork, and other décor items in order to create a desirable atmosphere that will draw attention from buyers.

In order to achieve the best results when preparing your home for a property styling makeover, there are several steps you should take. This includes decluttering and depersonalizing the space as much as possible, rearranging furniture to create an open floor plan, selecting appropriate colours and textures, adding decorative accents such as rugs or throw pillows, and bringing in fresh plants or flowers for an added touch of life. With these simple steps you can transform your home into one that will attract potential buyers.

Here at Simple Styling Solutions, we take a lot of that hassle away but we strongly advise for you to do the decluttering and depersonalizing before we enter your space.

Selling your home is the perfect opportunity to let go of all the things you've accumulated over the years. Get your sorting boots on, and put everything into 4 piles : KEEP, THROW, SELL AND DONATE.

Be brutal, it's now or never, if you haven't used something in over six months and it doesn't hold sentimental value, LET. IT. GO. Don't over think it, just do it! Once you get the ball rolling, you'll find it's quite the liberating practice.

After decluttering you'll be ready for a new start!

Before we come in and style, we also suggest depersonalizing your home. This is so potential buyer can visualise themselves in the space and therefore are more likely the make an offer.

This may look like, storing family photos, that quilted throw from nan, the inherited dinner set, the kids collection of sports medals and stacks of books we've all accumulated for that rainy day.

Once this is done, make sure everything is as clean as can be and you are ready for your property styling transformation to begin!
