When you’re selling your home in DC Ranch, you know that staging your bedroom is important. Buyers want to see a cozy, comfortable space where they’ll unwind for the day, and it needs to check all the right boxes in the first-impression department: It has to look spacious, relaxing, clean and pleasant.
How to Stage Your Master Bedroom
Home staging is an art, but it’s one that nearly anyone can master; all you have to do is give buyers the impression they want so they become even more interested in buying your home.
Buyers’ impressions have a lot to do with color, the amount of natural light in the space, and décor, which are all important in the bedroom. Here’s what buyers want:
- Neutral-colored walls. Go for beige, pale gray or cool blue (but be careful with the blue, as it doesn’t appeal to everyone; it might be best for an accent wall). Pale colors like seafoam green and light pink reduce stress, too, which makes them great choices for the bedroom, but remember, neutral is typically best in the bedroom.
- Paint with an eggshell finish. Eggshell finish helps brighten the room.
- Bright windows that let in a lot of natural light.
- Tasteful, simple and elegant décor with minimal furniture cluttering up the room.
3 Staging Strategies for the Bedroom
Once you’re working with the right base, you can start on the rest of the staging process, which includes removing excess furniture, dressing the bed and improving the lighting scheme.
Removing Excess Furniture
Take everything out of your bedroom but the bed, dresser, two bedside tables and a full-length mirror. If your room is large enough, put a comfortable but simple chair in to create a sitting area. The basic idea is to provide plenty of room for foot traffic; if someone has to turn sideways to get through, there’s not enough open space in the room.
Dressing the Bed
Your bed has to look luxuriously soft and comfortable. Dress it in sheets and a comforter that match the walls. Make sure your pillows coordinate, too. Don’t forget to cover your box spring with a bed skirt, if it isn’t already, and add a few throw pillows and a plush throw blanket for good measure. The bed is the focal point of the room, and you want buyers to associate it with comfort and rest.
Improving the Lighting Scheme
Put lamps on your bedside tables and, if you have a sitting area, place one there as well. Coordinate them with the décor (which you can use in your new home). Your lamps should match; symmetry is soothing.
Other Tips for Staging Your Bedroom
In addition to keeping the room spotless (vacuum and dust before showings, every time), these tips will help buyers fall in love with your home:
- Take out all the clutter. Leave nothing on any surfaces if it’s not decorative. Family photos should come down, and you should take out stuffed animals and other personal effects.
- Pick window dressings that let in light while matching the room’s style and color. Make sure the blinds are open and the drapes are pulled back before showings.
- Hang neutral art on the walls, and put a live plant somewhere in the room. If you’re not much for indoor gardening, a fresh bouquet of flowers in the bedroom is fine.
