Really make your home stand out If you want to go the extra mile to make your home stand out from the crowd, try these tips: • Fresh flowers near the entrance or in a reception room or kitchen look bright and fresh and may add a lovely scent (depending on the variety) • Freshly plumped cushions on the sofa and on the bed can add colour and a sense of luxury - they don’t cost much so it might be worth investing in some new ones • Fluffy new towels in the bathroom create a fresh and inviting atmosphere • If the grouting in your bathroom has seen better days, give it a once-over with a grout reviver product, available at DIY shops If you’re not sure what your home really needs to make the best impression on buyers, please ask us.
