Could you share any golden nuggets?Kirkland says: It’s all well and good to make your home smell great for potential buyers using fragrance, but that may still not work if the source of bad smells remains. If there’s a bad odour somewhere in your home, track down the source – whether it’s musty curtains, a damp or mouldy area, a litter tray, or shoes near the font door. And here’s another tip for sellers: add house plants. Greenery is beautiful to look upon and it helps purify the air.Hard Sell: What Could be Hurting the Value of Your Property?

Choose a style with a luxurious and appealing finish. I love using engineered stone for vanity benchtops. It’s durable and stain-resistant, yet has a beautiful, natural feel. Timber tops also look amazing, but they do need to be well-sealed and protected in order to reduce wear and tear.
What if my bathroom is dark?It’s difficult to keep plants in a bathroom with no windows or very little sunlight, but there are solutions. Start by choosing one of the plants mentioned above, which don’t require lashings of sunlight. Give them a rest in a brighter room every now and then – just make sure you don’t shock them by suddenly moving them from a dark spot straight to a hot location next to a bright window.
