Sell your tiny apartment with these tips:
1. Simplify your living space
A cluttered living space is a huge turn off for buyers, especially in smaller apartments. It’s time to pack away the dozens of picture frames, pieces of furniture and collectables. When you’re staging your home, it’s best to stick with staple items like your couch, TV cabinet, coffee table and maybe a rug.
2. Use neutral colours
Keeping wall colours light and neutral will attract more buyers. It gives the illusion of a larger space. If you have a couple of darker walls, perhaps consider painting them.
3. Make the most of balcony space
If you have a decent sized balcony, now’s your chance to ensure it’s a pleasant, additional living space. If you don’t have any outdoor furniture, you can purchase affordable pieces from stores such as IKEA, Kmart or Bunnings.
4. Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Large mirrors can make the world of difference to your home. Especially in smaller rooms such as the entrance and the bathroom. If you don’t have a large mirror, purchasing a new one could be a worthwhile investment. They can give the illusion that the room doubles in space.
5. Big, bold features
Rather than cluttering your walls with multiple pieces of artwork, a large, bold design can give your space the ‘wow’ factor.
