How To Step Up The Value O...

Selling a property for the highest possible price is always a challenge, however, it is the properties that stand out which tend to attract higher values and faster sales.

According to research, it usually takes around 20 seconds for a buyer to decide whether they like your home after walking into it. So, if you're looking to sell up, creating a 'wow factor' when you work through the door is essential.

Replacing your stair parts is a simple and cost effective way to spruce up your hall décor and takes a lot less time than you might think. In some cases, a new balustrade can be installed in a day or two, making it an achievable project for DIYers and a great way to increase the perceived value of your home, and grab buyers' attention.

If you live in a smaller home, stair parts play an important role in creating a light and airy ambiance, helping you to make the most of your available space, making the room feel bigger and brighter. Opting for glass infill panels instead of traditional wooden spindles helps to reflect light, creating a stunning centerpiece in your home and making the room feel more spacious and airy.

You can also create the illusory effect of a much larger space in your hallway by the strategic placing of mirror to maximise light.

When it comes to furniture it's also a good idea to avoid clutter. Hallway furniture that doubles as storage is a great idea, for example, a storage bench is an ideal multi-functioning solution. Upgrading stair parts is one of the easiest ways to add perceived value, and will make a big difference to the look and feel of your home.
