A potential buyers should envision themselves living in the home when they walk into it. However, it shouldn’t feel like someone else has lived there. It should be stylish but not so polarizing as to alienate most buyers. This is a difficult balance. It is best to leave the job to professional interior designers. When you get it right, buyers will be ready to offer and want to buy all of the furniture. Even if your goal is to sell the house, staging can help you design your bedroom. Get inspired by a staged home to transform your bedroom.
A headboard with an upholstered design instantly elevates a bedroom to a higher level of luxury. Our designer chose a grey-tufted headboard for this room. This sets a calm tone. A neutral color for an upholstered headboard is a good choice for staging and everyday life. You don’t have to choose a bold pattern you will get tired of, but instead, try different colors and patterns in pillows and bedding.
It also looks exactly like the bedding you would find in your home or an idealized version. It’s easy to feel at home in the crisp white bedding.
The Area Rug
An area rug is a key component of a comfortable bedroom. An area rug anchors the space visually and also serves a practical purpose. What would you choose if you woke up and wanted to feel more comfortable? A hard, cold wooden floor or a soft, plush rug?
The designer chose another neutral color but opted for a soft, high-textured rug to make the space feel more layered. Choosing the right size rug (and this is often done wrong). The rug should be large enough to cover the entire bed and have ample space.
The Bedside Tables
Two things are most important when choosing bedside tables. There should be at least two, and they should match. The designer selected sleek, metal-framed glass bedside table frames that contrast well with the room’s rich elements. The tables should be topped with lamps. This is both for symmetry and utility. (Why should one person have to read at night?). You can decorate the tables with flowers, books, and a carafe of liquids if you feel thirsty at night.
It would help if you considered how the people would use the space. Our designer created this reading area by placing a slipper chair with a sheepskin top and a metal floor lamp on the base. You can do something similar in your home. To make it even more special, you could place a small side table next to the chair so that you can read a book or have a cup of tea.
A bare window is the best way to say, “No one lives here”. You only need to hang a pair or two of drapes on each window. If you want more light-filtering options, blinds can be added, such as in this bedroom. Make sure your drapes reach the floor. Any shorter is absurd, so measure again.
