Preparing your home to make a good impression on potential buyers is extremely important when selling your house. This doesn’t just mean staging and cleaning your house, it also means making sure that your home smells nice. Not only will you want to make sure that you eliminate potentially offputting odors (such as the scent of a pet if you have one), but it means adding pleasing scents that make the space more comfortable and inviting as well. The following are a few tips for adding scents to your home:
- Use pine and cedar scents – Pine and cedar can be used to create a natural scent in your home that will help create an inviting environment, especially during the winter months.
- Use candles – Candles are an easy way to add visual warmth to a space as well as add a scent. There are many different scented candles to choose from, but vanilla, in particular, tends to help create a very cozy atmosphere. Just make sure that you place your candles carefully so that there’s no risk that they’ll be knocked over.
- Use herbs – Herb plants in the kitchen can help to add a fresh scent to an area where the air is often a bit stale. Herbs like rosemary, basil, and thyme are particularly effective.
- Make some green tea – The scent of green tea is very crisp and relaxing. It will also give you something to offer to buyers as they come into your home. Warm beverages such as green tea work better in the winter months.
