While selling your home may not be at the top of your list of priorities right now, it could be something that you have your eye on for the coming year or so. If you’re using lockdown to carry out some DIY and home decor projects, there are a few that you might want to avoid if you’re intending to put your property on the market in the near future.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Jen Stavbrook, from Love Chic Living, explained what you should focus on and what you should avoid if you want to sell your home.
One thing that is falling out of favour, according to Ms Stavbrook, is open-plan living spaces. “An open-plan layout was a huge trend a few years ago, but many people love the idea of separate rooms to give them more living options,” she stated.
If you were considering opening up your living space, you may instead want to spend money on luxury internal doors to give your home a facelift and keep the space separated.
Ms Stavbrook also advised against having tiled floors in living rooms, as people are often concerned about comfort and warmth if this kind of flooring is used in this part of the home.

Getting rid of piles of magazines on the coffee table is one suggestion, as well as replacing fake plants and flowers with the real deal.
