Need more space in your home? Make use of our self-storage in Bournemouth to free up some space.

 

 

1. Let There Be Light

No home will impress if viewers enter a dark and gloomy home. Make sure your curtains and blinds are not covering windows, to let as much light in as possible. This is particularly useful to brighten up bedrooms to make them feel nice and spacious.

 

2. Utilise Self-Storage Units

If you’ve got excess clutter that you can’t get rid of, be sure to use self-storage in Basingstoke to make some extra space available.

3. Make It Feel Spacious

In key selling areas like the living room and kitchen, keep the floors tidy and open – viewers need to be able to envisage their own belongings in communal spaces. Add some long mirrors to the hallway to make it seem more spacious. If you have any unneeded furniture, move it into a personal storage unit.

 

4. Be Sure It’s Cosy

Making your home impress at house viewings is all about creating a comfortable feeling when people enter. If it’s a chilly winter day, be sure to set the temperature to something warm (but not too hot). Or, on those rare hot summer days, open up the windows and to get plenty of fresh air coming in.

 

5. Don’t Neglect the Outside

Regardless of the size of your garden, be sure it is tidy and well-organised. If you have a nice garden table set, display it! Also remember the driveway must be immaculate – it’s the first thing they will see coming onto your property.
