Whether a developer, CGI artist, architect, landlord or owner occupier, attention to detail is important.
It is easy enough to include a Le Corbusier chaise longue and portray an illusion of contemporary chic which some people do buy. I used to advise the use of vertical blinds in flats with not great views. At least the focus was inside, the blinds could be angled to allow light in, and restrict the view over all the bins in the communal yard.
There are certain fixtures and fittings details some people do look for. The same finish of handles on doors and windows. There is no point in having satin chrome handles on internal doors, shiny handles in the kitchen and gold on the windows.
Lighting is so important. No exposed bulbs, no excuse. Here we are talking about pendants that look good , included in the price and are a bit of the wow factor. That is where the interior designer can also make the difference. It doesn’t have to be all about recessed spots.
Kitchens and bathrooms cost the most to install. Add a funky radiator, or interesting shower. It is the fixture that is not going to be removed when let, and it is a good selling point. Think about it. If spending an extra £ means your property on the market for less time it has to be worth it.
Carpet is good. It is tactile, warm and in living rooms and bedrooms great. I am not a fan a fan at all of wood or laminate. Give me vinyl in form of Karndean, Amtico or any great sheet vinyl. Check the wear layer. No beading, looks the same and better in wet areas.
Me, I just want this bath!
