We make it spotless, how do you make it fabulous?
Whether you’re styling your home with a new look, or sprucing things up for photos like our Airbnb customers, make sure your home looks its best with these quick and easy styling tips.
As part of our expert guest series, home-staging expert, Jenny Lindsay-Fynn of Decoroom, gives Handy an exclusive on her top tips for styling your home like a pro.
Remove those piles of old magazines, boxes stacked up in corners, piles of clothes, bathroom products and ugly kitchen appliances. Put them in the cupboard or out of sight to help maximise the feeling of space.
2. Introduce pops of Color
Buy some new cushions, rugs or throws to give your place some instant style and brighten up your photos. New cushions can liven up an old living room in no time and give it a fresh new look.
3. Spruce up Your Bed
Making your bed look neat and attractive makes all the difference to how a guest feels about sleeping there. Buy a new bedspread, or tuck your duvet into the matress and add plump, decorative cushions in front of your pillows.
4. Add Fresh Flowers or Houseplants
Buying fresh flowers for the day of your photoshoot is a quick and easy win. Try to choose colors to go with your decor, and they’ll help make your home look fresh, clean and cared for.
5. Capture the Light
Everything looks better in the light. Try to book your photographer on a day that’s forecast for good weather, and failing that use additional lights in your home to light the photos room by room.
