We regularly get asked on what candles work best when trying to sell your home. Candles have been a staple of home decor for centuries, providing both light and fragrance to a room. When you are trying to sell your home, lighting candles can be an effective way to create an inviting and welcoming atmosphere for potential buyers. It creates the same effect as the 'freshly baked bread' trick, using scent to evoke a potential buyer’ emotions. Here are some of our favourites to try!
Vanilla - Vanilla is a classic, sweet fragrance that is universally appealing. It is warm and comforting, making it perfect for creating a cosy atmosphere in your home.
Lavender - Lavender is a calming and relaxing scent that is often associated with cleanliness and freshness. This makes it an excellent choice for a home that is on the market, as it can help buyers feel at ease and comfortable in the space.
Lemon - Lemon is a fresh, citrusy scent that is invigorating and energising. This makes it a great choice for homes that are lacking natural light or are feeling a bit stuffy.
Cocoa Butter - Like vanilla, Cocoa Butter promotes a sense of cosiness, whilst also adding a touch of sophistication to your home, making it feel more luxurious.
When choosing candles, it is important to go for high-quality, natural candles that use essential oils to fragrance the wax. These candles will provide a more subtle and natural scent, which is more appealing to potential buyers. Additionally, be sure to light the candles just before a viewing to create a fresh, inviting atmosphere.
