Adding fresh flowers to your home introduces elegance and natural beauty. Flowers have the power to brighten up a space with their vibrant colours and fragrant scents. Consider using Eucalyptus plants as they last a long time and also emit a beautiful aroma, adding an extra touch of luxury to your home.

Rolled Towels

Displaying neatly rolled towels in your bathrooms or bedrooms conveys sophistication and attention to detail. This small touch creates the impression of a well-maintained and high-end environment, reminiscent of upscale hotels or spas.


Thoughtfully choose your lighting to transform the ambiance of each room. Natural light is always ideal, so aim to showcase your house during daylight hours. In addition, strategically placed lamps can add texture and enhance the overall atmosphere. Avoid relying solely on overhead lights, as they may not provide the most flattering illumination. If possible, use dimmers to create a customised and luxurious lighting setup that complements each space.


The sense of smell plays a crucial role in making your home feel luxurious. Introduce pleasant and inviting scents that evoke a feeling of opulence. Fragrances like vanilla, lavender, pine, citrus, or woody notes are commonly associated with luxury. However, be mindful of being subtle rather than overpowering. Consider incorporating additional smells that bring warmth to the house, such as the aroma of coffee, fresh bread, flowers, or the comforting scent of an open fire.

Fire and Candles

The presence of fire creates a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Whether you have a fireplace or opt for candles, the flickering glow of flames adds warmth and charm to your home. Candles, in particular, offer soft and ambient lighting that contributes to a sophisticated and relaxed setting.

By implementing some or all of these techniques before a viewing, you can make your home look luxurious and enhance the overall experience for potential buyers. These small touches can have a significant impact on their perception of your property.
