Episode 2 - Totally FREE ways the spruce up your space for sale!

Looking to nail your photos/home open without whipping the wallet out? Here are some of my go-to no-cost updates to blow the socks off your potential buyers.

Fill With Foliage

Find your inner florist and pick some

homegrown or found foliage from nature as a decorative element. This can magically add height and make your space feel bright and lively.

Fav Foliage Options:

  • Olive branch

  • Eucalyptus

  • Magnolia

Switch It Up

Think about better alternatives for your furniture placement, considering accessibility, traffic flow, focal points, and balance. The layout is crucial to a room's comfort and function. You're selling the space not what's in it so this is your chance to present it for its full potential.

Repurpose 2 Redecorate

Look around your home for items that will look great on display on a bookshelf/ console or as a centerpiece. There's a fine line between cozy and clutter so be selective ( Not a pile of irrelevant items) they have to all tell one cohesive story.

Top 5 repurposed décor examples :

  1. Clear glass bottle as a vase

  2. Ceramic/ wood bowl with fresh fruit

  3. Coffee mugs/ wine glasses to style

  4. Books/ magazines/ cookbooks to display

  5. Woven baskets to chuck a chunky knit blankets

Quick Lick of Paint

Chances are you already have leftover cans of paint on hand, a new coat of paint is one of the best ways to make your room feel refreshed. This goes for cabinet doors, window frames, or even that dresser that could use a modern touch.

The Style Stack

Display cookbooks, novels, and coffee table books to create an

additional point of interest. You can stack them vertically/ horizontally or have them open on your favorite page. When it comes to using books as décor, I always advocate judging one by its cover. Colour, content, and size all play a role in cohesive


Great places to stack books:

  • Coffee table

  • Shelves

  • Nightstand

Unspoken Rule: Sack biggest to smallest + spines on display

Elevate the drapes

If your curtains have enough length, consider moving the curtain rod closer to the ceiling to give the room a greater sense of height. This is a cheeky interior design tip to give the illusion of a bigger room.

Sound, sight & smell

These three senses are great in evoking positive emotional responses giving your buyers a calming feeling so they can picture themselves in the home in serenity and bliss.

  1. Sound- At crib we are strong believers in the power of music, switch on your music to suit your target buyers vibe!. PS. Justin Bieber might not be the best choice for an older mansion, I'd go classic!

  2. Sight- There's nothing better than a fresh, clean canvas to attract potential buyers. Think squeaky clean windows and all surfaces of the house.

  3. Smell- Lighting a few candles or baking fresh muffins to fill the space with beautiful aromas is a great way to create an inviting atmosphere.
