Getting your property ready for the Autumn market

Getting your property ready for Autumn market will a few slight changes can make all the difference.

Summer is fading, Autumn is on the approach and following a busy stretch of removals over August of successful staging projects, Cullum design are gearing up for a busy installation period ahead!

Whether working on a project for the sales or rental market, successful home staging is about enticing viewers to see a property as home, and simple updates to an interiors scheme will create a cosy and comfortable environment to take a property into the chilly months ahead.

Think colours – warm and earthy, rather than summer pastels, or jewel like tones for a hit of colour. Think layering up with fabrics and textures – velvet headboards, extra cushions, luxurious throws and chunky bedspreads. Think natural, seasonal touches – logs on the fireplace, vases of sticks and berries, and wooden chopping boards on display in the kitchen. Think inviting autumnal smells – room fragrances infused with vanilla, sandlewood, figs and spice. And finally, think ambient lighting as the nights draw in – floor lamps, table lamps, spotlights for dimming, not to mention candles to create a mood.

See images below where we have put our advice into action in a selection of home staging projects to inspire you to get your property ready for the Autumn market…

But its not only about interiors. The garden is going to be more work now clearing leafs, checking gutters and creating kerb appeal. When selling or renting your property, don’t undervalue the importance of the garden. It may not be the time of year of BBQ’s but you still want people to see what a lovely time they will have in the garden when Spring does finally come round again!
