How can I maximize the light in my home without over spending while I'm looking to sell?
A lighter home will feel larger and much more welcoming to your potential purchasers. Here are a few ways to add more natural light without spending too much money:
• Clean all windows and doors, inside and out, or employ the services of a window cleaner;
• Old style low energy bulbs don’t give the best light, treat yourself to the newer style;
• Lamps add a soft, ambient light, ideal for evening or winter viewings;
• Remove net curtains from windows while your home is on the market, they don't help with natural light internally and they detract from the external kerb appeal;
• Re-decorate tired rooms in a neutral, (yes, perhaps boring) but saleable colour and;
• Trim any bushes and trees which are excessively blocking natural daylight into your home.
