The simple yet effective paint factor

However, a pleasantly coloured interior and exterior environment is sure to give you a competitive advantage, provided everything else about the house is perfect. Imagine yourself in the position of a buyer! Even if the garden is well maintained, the walls are looking great with solid plastering Melbourne and the front door is delight, if the walls inside of the house are dark, gloomy and stained would you feel good about it?

Upgrade your kitchen

If you want to make the kitchen a little bigger but don’t have the funds for it, maybe you can make it look bigger. One tricky way of doing this is installing mirror panes on the kitchen walls and surfaces such as pantry doors. Also, by colouring the kitchen walls with a light colour (ideally white), you can make the area look a lot more spacious than it actually is.
