Sometimes, it’s the little things that make a big difference when you’re selling a flat. While it’s easy to spend a fortune staging your home for viewings, you don’t have to splash the cash to freshen up your space.

By maximising the assets your apartment already has and doing a few simple things to spruce up the overall appearance, you can make your home look more attractive to buyers and be on the right track to getting a quicker sale.

In this article, we’ll share our best home staging tips for apartments that can help you sell your flat quickly.

1.  Declutter

One of the best things you can do to stage your flat for a quick sale is to declutter. A messy flat can easily make the space appear smaller than it is.

Before viewings, minimise your belongings and put things away in cupboards to maximise your floor space and show off shelving areas.

Remember, it’s best to depersonalise as much as you can, but never make your flat feel empty. Buyers want to see open space, but too much emptiness can have a negative impact and make your home look cold.

Strike a good balance and stick to decluttering the clutter, not everything.

2.  Accentuate Natural Light

Natural light is one of the best features a home can have. If you have many windows in your flat, accentuate the natural light as best you can.

When viewings are booked in, make sure your window ledges are clear and your blinds/curtains are opened all the way. If you have time, give your windows a quick clean, too.

These changes may be small, but they can make a huge difference in how bright your apartment feels.

3.  Wash Rugs & Upholstery

Sometimes, it’s the little things that make a big difference! If you want to make your apartment look brighter, give your rugs, upholstery and sofa cushions a clean.

You may not notice it yourself, but these items can become dirty over time. With a quick wash of the essentials, you can make your space look fresher and cleaner. Plus, your apartment will smell fab when buyers walk in!

4.  Refresh Walls

Your apartment walls are likely one of the first things buyers will notice. With a bright, neutral colour, your flat can easily appear bigger and cleaner.

To stage your apartment for a quicker sale, giving it a fresh coat of paint can go a long way. However, we know not everyone can spare the cash or the time to paint.

Instead, you can simply wipe walls down with a magic eraser. With just a quick spruce, dirt and blemishes can disappear entirely.
