5. Coffee Table
A coffee table should be simply and elegantly staged with a few simple accessories.
If you only have a side table, place a couple of hard back books neatly in size order for an elegant look. If possible use coffee table books.
Hide, Hide, Hide except for any of your high end products then stage a couple accordingly.
Try and keep the smells in your home natural and not use any overpowering air fresheners. It is true that fresh coffee and baking are really attractive to a home-buyer; maybe even leave them a cake or two to sample.
Cushions can really bring a piece of furniture alive; make sure they are placed square on and not at an angle. Again you do not have to spend a fortune there are some fantastic cushions available on our high streets.
Make sure all your curtains and blinds are open as you want to ensure that as much natural light as possible is streaming into your home.
Let the start of your home be the signature for what is to come. Remember you want to give your home the best first impression to potential buyers. Add a hanging basket or tubs with fresh flowers if your budget allows use two Bay or Olive trees at either side of your front door.
