Good quality photos of your projects are vital to capturing clients. A professional in the real estate field knows the importance of a picture and that it does speak a thousand words. Photos of your work can be proof of your competency, making them a powerful tool for marketing and expanding your customer reach. Therefore, taking good home remodeling pictures is essential. Here are some tips to help you take before and after remodeling photos of your home projects.



1. Clean the Property

Decluttering a space is paramount before taking photos of a home remodeling project. It gives the room a clean and tidy look and makes the property look more inviting. Both the before and after photos should be clean. Ensure that there’s no waste in sight, and eliminate all the unwanted signs of trash, vehicles, and people from the image to minimize distractions so that your clients can focus more on the property and your new space.

2. Highlight the Most Dramatic Change

Of course, taking a photo of the entire home remodeling project is expected for a better overall picture to see the whole room. When highlighting specific areas, like a corner that has been through the most dramatic change, these small close-ups are excellent options for showcasing how you can go the extra mile for a project. It can even be your user selling point, as many potential customers would get an idea of how you can be their perfect contractor for their home remodeling project.

3. Take Before and After Photos in the Same Spot

Clicking a before and after picture of the property is a great way to help your potential viewers visualize your work and the improvements you made to the remodeled home. Get into the habit of taking a photo from the same angle for every home remodeled project you do. Imagine the property is a clock, and try to take the before and after home remodeling photos standing at the 4, 6, and 8 spots on the clock.

4. Capture in Landscape Picture Format

Home photos in a horizontal format are more likely to look eye-pleasing on your social media platforms than those in a vertical frame. Moreover, choose the wide-angle lens option for a maximum wide-angled setting so that you can capture the room sizes as much as possible.

5. Keep the Sun in Mind While Taking Real Estate Pictures

The lighting has a lot to do with how your photos turn out. Hence, taking interior or exterior pictures in a flattering light is essential. Make sure you take property pictures when the sun is still out. Mornings and evenings are the perfect timing for the most brilliant photos since the lighting is more appealing. You can go as far as afternoon when the sun is still shining. Also, you can use cloudy days to your benefit as they can help reduce shadows and scatter the light.

6. Take the Help of Photo Editing Tools

Aesthetics play a significant role when showcasing home renovation pictures to your clients. Photo editing software or services can help enhance the beauty of any photo by sharpening details, increasing the photo resolution, adjusting colors, and reducing noise. Don’t be afraid to use photo editing tools or AI photo enhancers for better-looking home remodeling pictures.

Show-off Your Work

Once equipped with high-quality images, it’s time to showcase them to the world. You can share them on photo-sharing apps such as Instagram with relevant hashtags to reach more people. To gain extra attention, incorporate these before and after home remodeling photos on your website and different platforms.
