How To Stage Your Master Bedroom To Feel Like An Oasis
Our bedrooms are our space to get a good night's sleep so we can wake up refreshed and recharged for the day! That's why it's important to create a space that feels peaceful and relaxing. Whether you're looking for great staging tips to prep your home for sale or your Master bedroom is just in need of a makeover, you can put these tips to work to get it to the oasis level!
Start with the windows. Swap out plastic blinds for floor to ceiling curtains.Even if your windows aren't floor to ceiling windows, it will help add height to your room and make your ceiling seem taller. Opt for neutral colors or patterns unless your room needs a splash of color.
How are your linens looking? Do you have mismatched sheets, two flat pillows and a comforter thrown over the top? Your bed is most likely the focal point of your bedroom so let's treat it that way! Add neutral or white linens to give your room a clean, crisp look. Try a white duvet cover, a cozy ivory throw at the end of the bed and fluffy white towels in the bath to give your master suite a luxurious feel. Next, accessorize with pillows. Have you ever stayed at a hotel where the pillows are piled on so perfectly it feels like you're laying on a cloud? Why not make the bed you sleep in every night have that same fancy hotel look? Throw on a couple of Euro sized pillows and you're ready to climb in bed with a good book and relax in comfort. You'll also want to add in some accent pillows but don't go too crazy here. When it comes to accent pillows, don't be afraid to try different shapes, patterns and textures. This is the best place to add pops of color to your room.
Bring the outdoors in by adding some greenery to the space. Fresh flowers on the nightstand is a simple yet striking touch. Consider adding a taller plant next to a floor length mirror or to a lonely corner.
Don't forget, lighting is the key to staging any room to look more put together. Light and bright makes everything look nice. Invest in updated lamps on your dressers, nightstand and the ceiling. A chandelier can give a romantic, upscale feel but if you're the type of person who needs a fan when you sleep, you can also add in a nice looking ceiling fan if yours is starting to look a little shabby or outdated.
Clear the clutter! Do you have jewelry laying out on the dresser and other things starting to pile up? I know I'm guilty of this and the only solution I found was to purchase some decorative jewelry boxes and a catch all tray. That way I can still keep my everyday pieces out without having things look cluttered and messy. Anthropologie has some beautiful pieces for storing jewelry.
Lastly, let's consider the paint color. Do your walls need a refresh? Try to stick to neutral paint colors for the bedroom so that it feels like a peaceful space. If you want to turn your bedroom into an oasis, you'll want to leave the bright colors for the accessories and opt for bright whites and lush ivories when it comes to paint. You can always balance out the room with a darker statement wall if you love the idea of breaking up the white. This is also a great room to try out a modern wall paper pattern to accent the wall behind your bed. Remember, you don't want every single item to be white to the point where the room looks cold and uninviting. Strike a good balance between neutrals and pops of color. Blush is a gorgeous and popular color right now that can be used as a neutral while also adding in some color.
Grab your phone and start making a list of the items you're going to need to focus on. Then you're ready to whip out your laptop and start online shopping! Before you know it you'll be sneaking off the bed early to relax in your beautiful new space!

"I tried to sell last year and I was unsuccessful so I decided to get some new opinions on what I should do. I interviwed two agents when I was getting ready to sell my home the second time. Angela and the other top person in the area. I was very impressed with both and both she and Angela came up with similar values for our home. The problem was that Angela's value was with me doing three projects and the other Realtor told me that I did not have to do anything. My wife and I were leaning on going with the other Realtor and Angela asked if she could come over and go over a few things with us.
She pulled out the comparable homes that we had picked together when she first met with us and she asked us to look at the pictures. All of the things that Angela was telling us we should do were done on those homes.
She then asked us to think about the signs that we have seen in the area that were his and the signs that we have seen in the area that were hers. Then she asked us one really good question. she said "Do you want to list with the agent that has his signs go up, quickly have a sold sign and then the sign disappears or list with the agent that seems to have the signs up forever. It seemed really logical but we had never thought about it that way. I had always thought about how many signs I saw for the other agent. It made sense that the other agent was not doing more business than, it's that her signs stayed up much longer.
We were convinced to list with Angela but we told him that we thought that our home would be able to sell without doing the things that Angela had suggested. she told us she would market our home like it was the best thing on the market. A month later our home had not sold. she told us we could do the things that she had suggested or drop the price to match the value.
Being a stubborn German, I did two of the things that Angela suggested but not the third. Three weeks later, Angela was talking to me about feedback. she told me that we were going to hurt ourselves unless we decided on one path or the other. Either finish the last project or drop the price before we were stale on the market.
I finished the last project, we went back on the market and sold three showings later. I tell my friends that it was just luck but I know different. Everything that Angela told us she was going to do, she did. Everything that Angela told us was going to happen when we first met with him happened. The price we would get for our home if we did the projects she said we needed to do, we got (once we did the project) she told us the truth and I am grateful that we listed with him and I would suggest that anyone selling a home interview him.
