Showcasing and staging your bedroom is easier than you think, your goal is to show as much space as you can and to showcase a clean, organized, clutter-free room (with a little pretty) that anyone would love. Follow these five tips, and you should be on your way to staging your bedroom in a breeze.
Your bed should fit comfortably in your bedroom. Do not use an over-sized bed in a small room or fill the room with furniture in an attempt to make it look bigger. You can never fool your prospective buyers; instead, edit your furniture to the minimum (or less than the minimum) to show off more space. If there isn’t enough room for a proper sitting area, don’t bother trying to create one. It will only make your bedroom look smaller and more cluttered.
HYPE UP THE FOCAL POINT
The bed is the biggest piece of furniture in the bedroom and the first thing that your prospective buyers will see when they enter the room, so dress it up and make it shine. It’s ideal for a bed to have a headboard to frame it and two-night tables for symmetry. While lamps are great, ensure that they are of the right size and style to complement your headboard, pillows, and bedding.
KEEP IT CALM & RELAXING
Avoid using bedding with a bold pattern and loud colours. Aim for a ‘hotel feel’ by using crisp white linens, white pillows, and white duvet covers that give a feeling of comfort and relaxation. Accessorize with one colour, just enough to create visual interest. It’s easy to do, it always works, and always a hit!
CLEAR YOUR BEDSIDE TABLE
Get rid of any clutter such as books, magazines, photos, and knickknacks. Too many of this can be a distraction and can ruin the overall feel of the room. Oh, and don’t forget your closet! Potential buyers will want to look in closets as well, so make sure that they are well organized.
SHOW OFF MORE SPACE
This is important; your prospective buyers are always looking for extra space so make one! Get rid of miscellaneous items like hampers, unnecessary furniture pieces, large collections of personal belongings from dressers, and entertainment centers. While this may be practical, these items can contribute to clutter and should be removed while selling. Your prospective buyer should be able to gracefully scan the room when they enter. This will create the illusion of space, instantly. It’s essential that you are disciplined to keep your bedroom as pristine as possible (at least during showings) while your house is listed on the market.
