Presenting your home
Good presentation maximises the desirability and value of your property. That is why Kirby Colletti staff take great pride in ensuring your property is presented in the best possible light. These photographs, together with floor plans and a location map, are then used in our extensive marketing program beginning online at Kirbycolletti.co.uk, Rightmove.co.uk or Zoopla.co.uk.
Light and Space
Windows look best when they are cleaned (inside and out) and covered as little as possible. Net curtains should be taken down or slid to the side and blinds should be lifted. If possible, position the sofa against a wall. This emphasises the size of the room and creates a more attractive photo. Make sure furniture or items stored behind doors do not prevent them from opening properly. This allows space for the photographer to stand back and frame more of the room.
