As early summer is often a key time for people looking to move, Sarah Quilliam, head of product design at Hillarys, gives some top tips on how window dressings can help create the right impression if you’re trying to sell your home.
“In a buyer’s market doing everything you possibly can to give your house the edge over the competition could mean the difference between selling or not,” says Sarah. “Windows are often the first thing you notice when you look at a house and if the window dressings are untidy and haphazard it can give a messy first impression.
“Roller blinds, all positioned at the same level, will give a clean and uniform look to the outside of your home.”
Prices start at £43 (61cm w x 76cm d) measured, made and fitted.
Shutters also look great as they are designed to attract the external onlooker as much as the internal occupant. “Curtains and blinds tend to be patterned on one side only whereas shutters have a lot of appeal for people outside the house.”
Prices start at £287 per sq metre for orders over 3 sq metres, measured, made and fitted.
“People like light filled rooms, especially when it’s natural daylight. Swap heavy drapes for light curtains that you can pull back to let the light flood in.”
Prices start at £99 for (127cm w x 137cm d) measured, made and fitted.
