  1. Add window treatments

Window treatments are an important part of the decor of your home and can really add something to a room. Window treatments can look incredibly beautiful and can make a room more memorable, exactly what you need your home to be when you are showing potential buyers around. They offer you the ability to control the amount of natural light coming into the room, helping you to highlight an exciting feature or take the focus away from something you don’t particularly want the buyer to notice.

  1. Change your Lighting

Lighting can have a huge effect on the appearance of a room, it can alter the mood, alter perceptions in regard to the size of a room and highlight features. Make sure you have the right lighting in your home to help it appeal to potential buyers.


  1. Add some metallic detailing

Metallic detailing is a big trend in interior design that looks like it is here to stay. Think of gold, bronze, silver, brass, or rose-gold, anything that has a metallic finish really makes a room look instantly more modern and fashionable. Look for light fittings, decorative accessories or door handles to really add a touch of class to your home.
