Mastering The Kitchen
Create A Look That Appeals
Styling is all about creating a look that appeals to the widest market possible. On-trend is fine but steer clear of anything too “out there”. Learn to master flooring, color, styling, lighting and finally kerb appeal.
Tick All The Right Boxes
You don’t have to spend a fortune to get a winning bathroom design. Learn the essentials on baths, showers, vanities, basins, toilets, tiles and accessories.
Perfecting the heart of the home
We use our kitchens everyday, so it needs to look great and be a functional space to cook, clean and enjoy spending time in. A great kitchen is number one on a buyer’s wish list, so if you’re designing with profit in mind, a neutral, elegant kitchen with clean lines will appeal to the widest market.
The priciest room to renovate
When it comes time to sell, your bathroom has to tick all the right boxes. But you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a winning design. Learn how and where you spend your money to get the biggest bang for your buck, in the priciest room to renovate.
Carefully executed wow factor!
So when styling your own home or ‘for profit’ investment projects, take a lot of angst out of the process of furnishing and accessorizing your home by following what the display homes do. Remember to keep your home impersonal, but make sure it feels light, warm, and inviting. You’re not selling a house, you’re selling a lifestyle!
Introduction to Styling
Good styling will make a buyer love your house more than the competing house down the road, even when that other house may be bigger, better located, and has views yours doesn’t. Put plainly, this is the super fun bit!
