Having a presentable home says a lot about you. Just like when you first meet someone and make an opinion based on their appearance, the same is done when someone comes and visits your home. If your home is messy and looks unappealing, guests may think of you as an untidy person who doesn’t care about their appearance. If your home is presentable, neat, and tidy the opposite opinion may be passed.
Making your home a presentable space isn’t a hard job, it just takes time and a bit of patience. Take a moment to run the Hoover and mop over your flooring to remove any dust and dirt – If you haven’t got time, a one-time house cleaning service could be something to consider. Ensure you have nice-looking accessories on display and put any clutter into a cupboard instead of having it out on display.
Below are our top tips for making your home more presentable.
Remove Any Clutter and Place It In Your Cupboards
When improving how presentable your home is, clutter is a big no no! Take a moment to walk around your home and spot anything that you think is out of place. If anything stands out like a sore thumb, remove it instantly. Try and find some cupboard space where you can store it but when storing, store it neatly instead of cluttering a cupboard. Whilst going over your home, this is also a chance to throw away anything that you no longer need – the longer you have stayed in a place, the more junk you tend to collect.
Accessorize Your Surfaces
Have you got a console table? Side tables? Or maybe a coffee table in your living room? Instead of leaving them bare, why not accessorize them to make them look more presentable? You could buy some candle gift sets and place the candles around your home to add a nice smell as well as make your surfaces look more presentable. Instead of candles, you could add some crystal, maybe a picture frame. When accessorizing, be careful not to overdo it and make the surface space look too cluttered.
Purchase Some Plants
I know, we probably sound like a broken record on this topic, but plants are amazing at making a home more presentable! They can add a selection of nice colors to your interiors as well as break up any big space you have in your rooms. They come in a myriad of shapes and sizes and are very affordable. Take a quick look on Instagram and search indoor plants for some examples of how other people use them to make their homes more presentable. They may not add value to your home but if you ever come to sell, you’ll certainly sell quicker.
