When you’re selling a home in DC Ranch, your REALTOR® will tell you that staging is important. It’s the one way you can pull buyers into the lifestyle they want – and for most buyers, that’s the most important part of the decision to purchase a home. Staging can help you sell your home faster, and it can help boost the profits you make from the sale, too. Check out these can’t-miss tips for staging your primary bedroom so you can give buyers exactly what they’re looking for.
7 Can’t-Miss Tips for Staging Your Primary Bedroom
Your primary bedroom is an important part of your home – and you want it to look as appealing (and relaxing) as possible so buyers know they’ll enjoy it. So where do you start?
Check out these seven tips for staging a primary bedroom:
- Use neutral colors
- Declutter everything
- Lighten up on the furniture
- Add bedside lamps
- Let there be (natural) light
- Bring in a live plant or two
- Choose art
Here’s a closer look at each.
Primary Bedroom Staging Tip #1: Go Neutral
Neutral colors sell bedrooms. If your room has a bright or dark accent wall, it’s time to consider repainting. Buyers are looking for soothing tones, like light blues, greens and beiges. Talk to your DC Ranch REALTOR to find out what paint colors are in primary bedrooms of homes that are selling right now. You may want to emulate what other sellers are doing, because that’s a good sign that buyers are loving the trend.
Primary Bedroom Staging Tip #2: Declutter Everything
Your bedroom should give off a relaxing vibe, but clutter is the archenemy of relaxation. Put away everything in the room, organize your closet (and remove at least half your clothes so it looks bigger), and make sure your surfaces are clear of anything that makes them look cluttered.
Primary Bedroom Staging Tip #3: Lighten Up on the Furniture
Your bedroom – unless it’s tremendous – should only have a full-length mirror, a dresser, bedside tables and a bed. If there’s a reading nook in the space, it should have chairs. You don’t want to keep any furnishings that could make the room look tough to navigate. If you have “extras” in your bedroom right now, think about putting them in storage until you’ve sold your home.
Primary Bedroom Staging Tip #4: Add Bedside Lamps
Bedside lamps are the perfect touch – they make the space look ideal for “winding down” in because they’re a little more mellow than overhead lights are. Your bedside lamps don’t have to match, but they should have the same style. (Read: Don’t mix a Victorian lamp with a beautifully fringed shade with the leg lamp from A Christmas Story. In fact, if you have that particular lamp, maybe it’s best to put it in storage for now.)
Primary Bedroom Staging Tip #5: Let There Be (Natural) Light
Buyers know that bedrooms are for sleeping, but they still want to see a light, bright space. That means hanging curtains high but drawing them back for showings – and if your drapes are dark or so heavy that they make the room appear smaller, it may be time for a change. When people come to see your home, make sure the drapes are pulled all the way open and that the blinds are up; that way, buyers can see just how much natural light can get in.
Pro Tip: If your primary bedroom doesn’t have a large window with a great view, consider adding a mirror to the wall opposite whatever natural light source you do have. That way, the room will appear brighter, even if your blinds are partially closed.
Primary Bedroom Staging Tip #6: Bring in a Live Plant
Live plants add… well, life to a space. Think about bringing in a tough, hardy plant (like mother-in-law’s tongue) that will thrive in your bedroom. If you’re better with blooms, a flowering plant is a great choice, too!
Primary Bedroom Staging Tip #7: Choose Art
Replace family photos and any art that could be deemed controversial with more neutral pieces. Think about the artwork in your favorite luxury hotel; that’s what you’re going for. You don’t want buyers to be distracted by decor – instead, you want them focused on the room’s overall appeal. That’s why floral paintings, cityscapes and even copies of classic paintings are perfect for staging a primary bedroom.
