Once you’ve stripped back each room to the bare essentials, consider how best to present it as part of a fully-equipped property. A home office or gym may be better presented as a guest room, emphasising its versatility for families. You can rent extra furniture, such as beds and chairs, to clarify each room’s function.
Paint smaller areas, such as ante-rooms and sunrooms, the same shade as their adjoining rooms to open them up and lend the illusion of added space. When you have a bigger area to play with, set large pieces like sofas and dining tables away from the walls to accentuate the room’s width.
Paint your walls
Neutral wall colours are more attractive to viewers, as they enable them to easily visualise adding their own character to the property. Choose plain tones such as stone, magnolia and fawn. For rooms with less natural light, select a more saturated hue to avoid shadows subduing your colour scheme.
