4 Quick Ways To Stage Your Master Bedroom!
With the weather getting nicer, it is imperative to start hosting open houses. Now, if you are on a tight budget and don't want to break the bank, here are 4 fast and fairly cheap ways to get your master bedroom looking in tip, top shape.
#1. No Tchotchke's (better known as nick-knacks) : De-clutter your living space. Hide your doll collection and your precious moments! Make sure everything on your vanity, nightstand, and dresser is cleared off! Yes, you may love them, but it can turn a potential buyer off thinking they rather live elsewhere than some doll shrine. Keeping it clean and organized with nothing more than a few family photos as a personal touch is key.
#2. Hotel-Ready Your Bed: When one walks into a nice hotel room the first thing people see is the freshly made bed, with beautiful linen sheets, and lush throw pillows. No wonder the next thing they want to do is jump on in it! Go throw away the bed set you asked for ten years ago on your wedding registry and buy something that will make your room pop! Bedding doesn't have to cost you an arm and a leg, but it surely will make all the difference when trying to sell. When out buying, stick to lighter colors that will help open up the bedroom.
#3. Get Obsessive with Organizing Your Closet: No you don't have to color coordinate your closet (although, it never hurts to do so). You will however want to clear out some shelf space if your closet is maxed out on room. You want the buyer to see the actual potential your closet may have. Now that it is spring, store away the parka, wool sweaters and boots, where they can't be seen until next November! Also, learn to retail fold, very easy, and it maximizes space and looks extremely neat, who wouldn't want to go into a closet that looks like a clothing store? I once read that you want to match hangers, either keep all wooden hangers, or all plastic hangers, but that sounds a little too mommy dearest for me (NO WIRE HANGERS!!).
#4. Dress Up Your Room: Whether it be with a mirror (just not above the bed), some flowers to brighten up the room, or some tasteful pieces of wall art.You will definitely want to liven up the space so people know its a bedroom and not a prison cell.
Remember mirrors, bedding, and taking some time to organize and clean does not take a lot of money or effort and will definitely pay off in the end when trying to sell your home!
