    Most Aussie families come to a time where we wish to sell our homes. Maybe you need to move closer to work or other family members. Perhaps you have a growing family, and your house has become too small. Or perhaps you’ve got an empty nest and it’s time to downsize.

    There’s also those that invest in property and come to the point that it’s time to sell. Whatever your reason, the one thing we all want is the highest price possible. Before you put your property up for sale there are clever ways to increase its market value. By investing a little into the appearance of your home, you’re more likely to get top dollar for the sale. You don’t need to invest in a major home renovation to accomplish a greater sale price. More often than not, simple cosmetic upgrades can have a great impact. Simple items like changing your curtains or  blinds can do the trick.

    Below we have a few simple tips that can help you make your home more attractive to buyers using cost effective window dressings.

    What room needs curtains or blinds?

    Different interior décor works in different types of homes and rooms, as does window dressings. From a strategic perspective your personal taste does not matter. For the general consumer, some rooms work well with curtains, while others are better off with blinds. There are several factors to consider including the styling of the room itself, the amount of natural light it gets and how much privacy it requires.

    Curtains and blinds are more than just decorative items. Part of their purpose is to control how much natural light gets inside the room and to provide privacy. Additionally, they can provide warmth in cold weather and help to allow air circulation in climates where that’s suitable.

    Weigh up these factors when choosing between curtains or blinds for each of your rooms and how it may suit the lifestyle of potential buyers.

    Go for neutral colours

    Many of us have a hard time imagining a property with minor cosmetic changes. Using vibrant curtains or blinds in your interior decorating can be a great way to add a visual statement to your personal home. The problem is your personal sense of style may not suit potential buyers.

    When you’re selling your home, it’s preferable that you use neutral colours throughout your styling. Neutral colours are understated which can also make a room appear more elegant. They are less likely to overwhelm potential buyers and therefore allow your buyers to see all the possibilities a room holds for them.

    Create visual appeal

    Lived in homes tend to show signs of wear and tear over the years particularly for families with young children. We don’t tend to noticed the marks, stains and tears when it’s our own home however visitors notice them immediately, particularly if they are assessing the quality of the property like a prospective buyer does. Replacing old window dressings is a great way to give the whole home a clean, fresh look.

    Your curtains and blinds can be the finishing touch that makes or breaks a great sale price. The right selection for your property is the key. For example, if your living room is built with floor-to-ceiling windows with lots of natural light and a great view, installing motorised blinds can create a dramatic effect in the room. The room’s natural beauty can be shown gradually by raising the blinds with the remote control, slowly letting the light in and view revealed.

    Your choice of curtains and blinds can play a huge role in how attractive your home is to buyers. We’ve all seen the reality TV shows about renovating and flipping houses and how the budgets can blow out unexpectedly.

    Installing curtains and blinds is an easy way to raise your home’s market value. Contact us today for our recommendations to suit your property along with a free quote.
