5 Picks to Prepare Your Home For Sale

Preparing your home for sale can seem like a formidable undertaking. These carefully chosen top picks should help you along the way to creating a space memorable for potential buyers. 

 

Chairs

Mid-century silhouettes have become a prominent trend in 2020, curvaceous yet sleek seating can create real impact - a vision of modern design that still oozes originality. 

 

The inventively named ‘Squishbag’ armchair from Loaf.com is not only boasting comfort transferability due to its classic shape. 

 

 

Similarly, the ‘Juno’ Armchair from West Elm makes a bold statement, a great addition to a neutral space.

 

Art

Unlike furniture, decorating with some great art requires much less commitment and can be interchanged depending on your interior scheme. The right pieces can have real longevity, following you through future homes.

 

Art can be implemented in whichever way you wish, Divine Savages carries its print through its pieces, from cushions to wallpaper in a variety of richly decorative patterns.

 

Divine Savages’ ‘Deco Martini’ collection, encapsulates the opulence of the Art Deco period, as an ‘accessory’ to a room. The rich tones used here become a point of interest with minimal effort!

 

Mirrors

Mirrors are the ultimate accessory to open up space. Mirrors can be really expensive, but John Lewis has some great options that won’t break the bank. Whether it’s a sleek look you’re after or something more decorative, their range varies from minimalist to ornate. 

 

 

Lighting 

Lighting – a practical consideration but also key in creating ambience. It’s important to think about sidelights as well as overhead lights and how this complements the use of space.

 

 

This wall Light from David Hunt Lighting is an industrial style fitting available in a range of shades. This would be great in a dining area or space for entertaining, giving the feel of luxury.

 

 

Alternatively, Oliver Bonas has some beautiful lamps for a smaller budget. This floor lamp will give a quiet glow to a room, its slim frame adding an elegant touch.

 

Plants

A common misconception is that to sell your home it must be decorated from wall to wall. However, paring it back and choosing simple pieces often helps emphasise the flow of space for buyers.

 

Plants are one of the cheapest and most accessible home accessories available. Found even in your local supermarket, there’s an enormous range on the market, whatever your style.

 

 

 

Amara has a great selection of artificial plants and pots. Not only does this Bonsai require no maintenance but will look chic almost anywhere.
