If you have an outdated dining table and chairs, it may be worth investing in some new furniture to help present the room in the best way.
If you know you have a viewing, make sure your dining table isnt cluttered with papers relating to life admin. You can go even go a step further and dress it for dinner to help clearly define the purpose of the space in the room.
You can’t go wrong with a classic country table. Generally, the country-style dining table is large and therefore suitable for families or for people who regularly entertain. These tables are usually made from a solid timber, like oak or pine, making them very robust.
It is likely that you will take the new items with you and so it wont be a wasted spend and could end up selling your home if it helps to make the room appeal to buyers. If you dont take them with you and the buyers like the space, you could offer to sell them - this is particularly handy for first-time buyers.
