10 Home Staging Tips for the Master Bedroom
Whether your home is a tiny cottage in Bemus Point, a mansion in Chautauqua Institution on Chautauqua Lake, or are selling a home somewhere in between, the master bedroom can be an oasis of calm in a chaotic world. It is the place many retreat to when life outside the house gets overwhelming, the spot where you lay down for a good night’s rest or a romantic “staycation” with your spouse or partner. But when it comes time to sell your home, the master bedroom can be a make-or-break space. If a would-be home buyer can successfully see themselves in that space, an offer could be just a phone call away and you could sell your home quickly. If not, chances are that home buyers will simply move on to another house for sale.
Successfully staging the master bedroom is an art as well as a science, but if you do it right, home buyers will respond positively. That could mean more offers house, a higher home sales price, and a faster moving process. With that in mind, here are 10 smart staging tips to make your master bedroom look better than ever.
- Clear the room. Buyers expect the master bedroom to be roomy and relaxing, but having loads of furniture can make the space look smaller than its true size. When staging your home for sale, remove all furniture from the master bedroom with the exception of the dresser, bedside tables, and the bed itself.
- Organize and clear out any of the clutter. Homebuyers are looking for a fresh start and a cluttered master bedroom will not win you any fans, so clear out the clutter and put everything in its place.
- Invest in a closet organizer. You want to show off your closets, not your clothes, and a closet organization system can put the space in its best light.
- Dress the bed. Now that you have some extra space, dress your bed up to enhance the charm of the surrounding room. You can make the master bedroom worthy of the name with a lovely duvet, your softest sheets and pillows that compliment the color of the walls.
- Use color to create a calming and neutral environment. Speaking of the colors of the walls, repainting can be an integral part of successfully staging your home for sale. If your bedroom is done up in bright and vibrant colors, consider switching to a more neutral shade. Think pastels and soft shades, all the better to soothe the new buyers to sleep.
- Let the light into your house by using sheer and simple window treatments. When would-be home buyers are coming over, you want to put the master bedroom in the best possible light — literally. Simple yet elegant blinds and sheer curtain panels will create a stunning look, and opening those window treatments up will let the natural light shine in.
- Add some greenery. A large potted plant or vase of fresh flowers will add beauty and drama to the room, along with a splash of color.
- Hang some artwork. A stylish painting can be the finishing touch for your newly staged master bedroom. Choose a neutral theme that will appeal to a wide variety of home buyers; keep the modern art masterpieces off the walls.
- Place a stylish lamp on the bedside table. A lamp on the bedside table will brighten the room even more and add some charm to the room. You can enhance the look even more with a matching floor lamp in the corner.
- Give the room a thorough cleaning before every realtor walks their home buyer through. Now that you have worked so hard to stage the master bedroom, make sure you keep the room clean and give it an extra bit of polish prior to every showing or open house. You want would-be home buyers to picture themselves happy in your house, and that starts with a deep cleaning.
Obviously pricing your home for sale right is extremely important but, staging a home is a close second and the master bedroom is arguably one of the most important spaces in your house. If you stage that room right, you could see a steady stream of offers to purchase your home, but do it wrong and your house could sit on the market for months. The 10 tips listed above can help you stage your home for sale like a pro, all without the cost of hiring a professional stager.
