Ready to sell that flip? Staging a bedroom is just as important as staging an eye-catching living room or kitchen.
In this guest post, Julie Austin shares some tips for staging a bedroom for maximum comfort using – comforters!
Staging Your Property For Resale
Draw attention to your home’s strengths, downplay its flaws and attract the greatest possible swarm of potential buyers with these home-staging tips.
The most immediate thing you can do to organize your home for resale is to rid it of clutter lying around. Make it a house rule that for every new item that comes in, an old one has to go. One of the chief contributors to a disorderly look is having too much furniture.
When expert stagers descend upon a home being prepped for market, they often hurtle away as much as half the proprietor’s furnishings and the house looks gigantic for it. Take a hard look around at what you own and ask yourself what you can survive without.
When starting with an empty property, think minimalist, just enough to be appealing without looking “lived in.”
In this post, we will be concentrating mainly staging a bedroom and specifically how to use comforters for staging home for resale.
Why Staging a Bedroom Is Important
You might not feel like assembling the bed on busy mornings; it’s fundamental to do so — with responsibility — when your home is on the market. That might look as if its obvious, but numerous property owners and tenants leave the bedroom untidy for showings.
It doesn’t show well if it looks like somebody has just gotten out of bed. First impressions are everything, and an unattractive tangle of blankets is off-putting. The bedroom is central because people will envision themselves there, and the likelihood of resting there.
To make the bed emerge as clean and peaceful as possible, use white sheets and neutral-colored covers. No need to spend a lot of cash. Pillowcases are chiefly important because they’re usually in sight above the covers, so buy a new set.
When you have a picture of the bedroom, the bed takes up a significant amount in the picture.
Hanging art and buying new bedding might seem like a lot of trouble to prepare for showings, but such steps are worthwhile. Nobody’s actually climbing into that bed when they visit, so it’s all about the feeling of the environment you create.
What Comforters Should You Use for Staging
Thick and (sometimes) quilted, a comforter differs from a quilt in that colors are generally dyed, and patterns are not embroidered. Comforters are filled with layers of material including polyester batting (a synthetic fiber), down feathers, wool or silk.
The loft (thickness) of the filling determines the weight as well as the level of insulation. Comforters are stitched or quilted to secure the filling and to ensure that it is evenly distributed.
They are intended to be the bedspread, sitting on top of sheets, but again, those who want to create a layered look should go ahead and do it. There are no cardinal rules to be broken in bedding!
Call in a professional stager, whether they just spend a few hours giving you some helpful tips or they come in to redecorate your entire space completely. It is money well spent and will eventually end up back in your pocket when you sell your home for top dollar.
