Property styling is in the detail

Property styling is in the detail!

In previous blog posts we’ve told you all about the importance of a clean and clutter free property and homestyling basics, but once you have a blank canvas then you can start thinking about the details. This stunning property that we have recently sold in La Rinconada shows perfectly what you can do with a few carefully chosen, well placed pieces and a little imagination.

Painting a wall a strong contrasting colour and then adding a headboard with texture and style can transform a bedroom. Adding a structural plant such as this one on a bed side table or in an empty corner, brings the outside in and softens the appearance of the room. Also, you can see how the cushions on the bed pick out the main colours of the walls and the headboard, tying everything in to a coherent design.

Kitchens can sell a property, but it doesn’t mean you need to spend a fortune, shops such as Ikea do excellent value, stylish kitchens and you can personalise with striking light fittings such as these, which draw the eye to a feature such as an island, or dining area.

Bathrooms can be boring, or outdated, but with the addition of flowers and scented candles you can add colour, warmth and a lovely fragrance.

As we said in our last post, don’t forget to dress your outside spaces, as empty terraces and patios can look cold and boring. By adding some strong palms or ferns and neutral toned sun loungers with towels on, it makes buyers imagine themselves soaking up the sun. Once they imagine themselves living in your property, you are an important step closer to an offer.

Remember, you don’t always have to buy new pieces, you could easily have everything you need in the property, but just not in the right places. So as you declutter, make up a box of interesting pieces such as vases, pretty bowls and plates, candles etc. which you can then find the perfect place for when you’re ready to start the styling process.

If you need help, we have experience taking properties which won’t sell and transforming them through styling into a property that buyers love. Please contact us to find out how we can style to sell.
