As we head into the colder month, your open home visitors will be seeking shelter from the elements as they enter your property. Your hallway is the first impression of what lies beyond. So, it’s importance that you make it a great entrance!
In this week’s article, we thought we’d share some practical tips on how you can organise and improve your hallway, to help sell your home!
Making an entrance – Hallways and selling your home:
It’s a simple solution, but doormats save your entrance way from muddy foot prints! There is a great selection of dirt trapper mats available on Fishpond.
Sunhats aren’t in season
Entrance ways can quickly develop into dumping grounds. When you’re selling your home, it’s essential to clear the clutter. The hallway is a great place to start. Get a headstart on your packing by sorting through the coats, shoes and hats that have accumulated in this area. Pack up all the items that are off-season ready for the removal company, then store them out of sight until we get your place sold. It won’t be long!
Have a hook… Or two!
Once you’ve tidied the off-season items away, make sure things stay tidy. Hooks and hangers are essential. Teach the kids to hang their school bags at the front door, so your open home visitors don’t trip over them. We love the selection of General Eclectic Wooden Hooks available at Shut the Front Door.
Organise your space with a clever cubby-hole system. These units from Warehouse Stationary are free-standing so that you can take them with you to your new home! In the meantime, they’ll keep things ship-shape while you are selling your home.
Remembering the telephone table
Do you remember the days of the telephone table in the hallway? While the landline might be redundant, the telephone table is still useful, especially if it has a drawer! A console table is a quick and easy way to clear hallway clutter. Keys, post, mobile phones can all be swept into the waiting drawer at a moments notice.
