With 15 years experience in interior design, Penny Magro, from Style by Penelope, has been through many homes and has been able to provide various styling tips to allow people to showcase their home at its best. Below are five top styling tips recommended by Penny for preparing your home for sale:

Remove Your Personality

One of the most important style tips is to remove your own personality from the home. Ideally you need get used to the that one day this will not be your your home. Removing your collection of items such as your collection of jugs, or antiques, or photo frames will allow for a blank canvas on the property, meaning that a broader number of people can fall in love with the home as they see themselves living there.

Furniture Layout

Don’t have large furniture in small rooms, and don’t have too much furniture. There has to be a flow in the place. Allow people to breath and relax in the rooms in your house. Moving from room to room needs to be able to work. For example, if you have two large sofa’s and two large chairs in one lounge room, consider having just one soft or possible one chair and a small side table. This will give the room a feeling of space, and will allow for groups of people to walk through comfortably. When groups of people walk through for an open an inspection, a large coffee table in the middle of a lounge room will feel cluttered.

Front Exterior

A lot of people concentrate mainly on the internal of the house but you should consider other areas of the home. When you walk up to the front gate, it should be pretty and clean. It has to make people want to fall in love and think “I could live here”. Have one grand pot with very healthy green foliage on the front veranda or porch, rather than lots of little pots, along with a nice welcome mat at the front door, and clean windows. Make people feel that this could be their front door they could be opening for the next few years.

Neutral Colour Scheme 

Make sure that the colour scheme of the home does not clash. Tone down the use of colours, using varying shades of neutrals. Keeping the colour scheme simple will be a blank canvas for others to add their own personality.

Clean and Tidy

Have the property fresh, clean and inviting. Master bedrooms should look very sumptuous because the people who are walking through will see that as their room. Add a lovely throw at the end of the bed, and have clean, fresh, new linen.

Scent

Avoid using air freshener. It can be overpowering, particularly when a property has been closed up for a while. We recommend a vanilla candle, quietly burning in the background so that it is not noticeable. It will be a subtle scent, and add some lovely ambiance.
