Make your property stand out from the rest

New interior styles and trends for homes are emerging in 2023. Many properties on the market use unique architectural designs, artistic decor, and minimalism as an effective way to stand out. Bold interior design is making its way back this year, with many homes already selling on the market while featuring bold designs with intriguing styling and unique colour palettes. 11 Lusher Avenue, Turvey Park, Wagga Wagga (Sold) Pick a colour and see where it takes you. Many vendors have been explorative and discovered some creative designs that compliment the features of their homes. As you can see above, the orange walls are complimented by accented rugs, orange furniture, decorative pieces and wall art. Blue being a complimentary colour to orange, sets a nice contrast within the room, creating a sense of cohesiveness. 11 Quill Avenue, Boorooma, Wagga Wagga (Sold) This modern, stylish home as you can see above, houses a beautifully contrasted kitchen space, with open plan living. The wood tones and the sleek black cabinets and bench compliment each other perfectly, creating a diverse space, which is softened by the white marble style splash back.

Not only can it express emotion, but it can reflect the potential that a home has. Creating an engaging space and show a home's individuality. Using bold interior design can help create an exciting atmosphere, using its contrasting colours, textures and patterns.

Having a home that stands out, creates a higher opportunity for interest, because finding a home with personality and style is high priority. Having a bold, colourful and vibrant bedroom can have a positive effect on moods and emotion. Having cooler colours like green and blue can promote relaxation, whereas having orange and yellow can create a sense of warmth and welcoming. Each room can have its own purpose and you can explore the different impacts and personalities there is to offer. Creating a home that is stylish, emotive and bold can be the key to success when selling your home.

Presenting Your Home: Styling

A well-presented home is one of the biggest aids you could possibly use when advertising your property. The way your home looks and feels can be the make or break when coming to a successful sale, and good presentation could lead to a potentially higher selling price than anticipated. This is why styling your home or hiring a home stylist is extremely important. 5 Burwood Street, Turvey Park, Wagga Wagga What is styling? Styling takes an empty home, and makes it feel alive again. By using furniture, ornaments and decor, you can give each space a purpose, and show buyers the potential the home has for their own future. It can emphasise practicality and provide ideas for functionality and layout. A stylist will take a rooms functionality into account and capitlise on that, utilising light, the purpose of the room; it can create an emotive environment such as: the living room relaxing, the bedroom cozy and comfortable, the kitchen streamlined, open and calm. By using different colour palettes, they can harmonise the household by creating a consistent colour theme and art style. 29 Valencia Drive, Gobbagombalin, Wagga Wagga Why Style your home? Styling not only boosts your homes appearance for inspections, but also creates a more interesting subject to photograph. Photos of a home is almost always the first step in having a potential buyer to show up. As long as a home looks appealing, it can intrigue buyers and convince them that the property might be perfect for them. Not only does it show the functionality of the home, but it creates a window of opportunity for both the vendors and buyers. 11 Quill Avenue, Boorooma, Wagga Wagga (Sold) As you can see, the homes above have been given a unique flair, and now compliment the space. There is a cohesive colour scheme, and it makes the area feel open, airy and welcoming. It really helps potential buyers to be inspired as to how they could use the space.
