Put Your Home Selling Fears to Bed by Updating your Bedroom

When you sell your home, it’s important to stage bedrooms properly because they are often some of the most closely inspected rooms. Fortunately, bedrooms are often one of the easiest and cheapest rooms to update for staging because there is no need to install or remove structural objects. What bedrooms need most is some deep cleaning and surface updates.

Before you begin buying items to update your bedroom’s look, let’s lay some ground rules.

1. Less is More

There is a careful balance between too much clutter and too empty space. When you’re trying to sell your house it’s important to keep your design simple and make sure that every item is adding something special to the remove. Otherwise, it should be removed from the room.

2. Create a Budget

Creating a budget can keep you from going overboard. Redecorating the room can be fun but remember that you aren’t making this your dream bedroom. If you can find items that you will reuse at your new home, that’s great but remember this bedroom isn’t going to be yours, so don’t worry about making it exactly to your liking or spending a lot to make it perfect.

3. Use Soothing Colors

Buyers should feel relaxed when they enter a bedroom. Use soft colors to draw buyers in.

4. Keep décor neutral

Décor like bed linens and pictures shouldn’t make a statement about who you are. You’re moving on to a new bedroom, so make it neutral and let the new buyers have fun thinking about how they would fix up the room.

5. Hire a Decorator or Stager if Needed

If you aren’t comfortable staging or don’t want the hassle, hire a professional decorator. While hiring a professional can be costlier, it could make you thousands more in the final sale price.

Now that you know the Rules let’s look at some of the easiest and most inexpensive things you can update in a bedroom.

1. Bedding

Take the time to update sheets to coordinate with the comforter as well as buying a new comforter if needed.

2. Hardware

Changing something as simple as the drawer handles on a dresser can do wonders for a room.

3. Headboard

You can easily hook up a headboard to a bed, but if you don’t want to go to the trouble or the expense, you can also fake having one with a large art piece and some decorative pillows.

4. Trim

A simple way to update a room is by adding ribbon to curtains, bedding, and pillowcases. You can incorporate a new accent color this way and unify the entire room.

5. Mirror

Adding a mirror is an excellent move because it will reflect light and can make rooms feel bigger than they are.

Bedrooms are one of the most looked at areas of a for sale house. Luckily, they are also easy and inexpensive to update. When selling your home, you should always take the time to spruce up this area to ensure a quick sale.

Stress is one of the largest concerns when selling a home. Staging, managing finances and documents, and simultaneously juggling the rest of your life can be completely draining. However, one thing is certain about selling your home: it’s a lot easier when you have a solid real estate agent to handle it. Remember, No-One Works Harder to Sell your Home more than Joe!
