THE small finishes
usually date a home.These includes:
colour of the bathrooms tiles – painting tile white is a simple way to
modernize a bathroom
or worn flooring should be replaced
fittings can tell a real story – replace ‘70s fittings with simple, modern
fittings; wall paper can also date a home – floral wall paper must go;
replace it with a fresh coat of white paint.
you can afford it, modernize the built-in cupboards by replacing the doors
and handles, this also improves the home’s “datedness”.
for selling quickly:
the house but not the window frames or doors – this is not really
expensive and gives the property a psychological lift.
to carpets with a thorough deep clean and reseal flooring.
– clean all upholstery to remove any unwelcome odours.
a garden service a trim.
doors and drawers that don’t close properly.
all clutter, put away ornaments, excessive furniture, picture frames
