Restyle the bedroom to attract more buyers


In second place we have the bedroom with 21,345,111 posts. We suggest focusing on the main bedroom to up your property's value. The easiest way to make a big impact is to declutter and tidy things away. Buyers will want to see a blank canvas to imagine themselves in the room.

Living room

Probably one of the rooms where the most time is spent, so it is not surprising that the living room has 20,126,152 Instagram posts. Dedicate some time, effort, and money into decorating this area to help you sell your property sharpish.


A bathroom done well makes all the difference, and with 16,491,692 Instagram posts, a lot of people can appreciate a good wash space. Similarly to the kitchen, if you cannot afford a full overhaul, consider upcycling and changing the hardware for a big impact.
