How To Make A Tiny Balcony A Selling Feature When Selling Your House
How to make a tiny balcony a selling feature when selling your house?
This is a true story about how homeowners transformed what they considered an “ugly duckling” and a space for extra storage into a selling feature when they prepared their home for sale.
Through the Eyes of the Property Stylist
- Our property stylist immediately saw the potential of this tiny balcony, with its three brown and red-brown bricked walls and stained concrete floor.
- Can you spot the potential? Yes! The luscious green treetops and natural beauty is a masterpiece to behold. It is like having your very own treetop sanctuary to escape to.
- Imagine sitting here, having a coffee in the early mornings before work, serenaded by a conglomeration of bird song before going to the office and you know you can return to the same wondrous space after a long day.
Let the Makeover Begin
- The Concrete Floor and Brick Walls
- The concrete floor was given a thorough wash with a hard bristle broom and some soapy water.
- Next, a high-pressure washer was used to wash away all the soapy water, dirt and grime from the floor.
- The brick walls were pressure wash too.
- After the wash, the warm brown and red-brown colours of the bricks actually accentuated making the walls look super nice.
- Brown stained outdoor floor decking was put down on the concrete floor.
- A border of white pebbles edged the area which made such a difference to the floor.
- Complete transformation!
- To create a sense of more spaciousness the two dark grey imitation wicker chairs were placed towards the back corner.
- The pure white cushions brought vivid contrasting colour and elegance into the space and made the balcony look inviting.
- Keeping in tune with the surroundings, the decorative cushions mirror the tree scene before them.
