No...not those assets...but that's important too...
Successful staging involves using your home's assets to your advantage. Whether it's an open floor plan, outdoor entertaining space, or a gorgeous kitchen, buyers should always be able to see what makes your particular house special...and by special, I of course mean worth your full asking price!
This particular home had a master bedroom that, while somewhat low on square footage, had a vaulted ceiling that made the space feel a lot more spacious than it was in actuality. However, the non-descript bed, distracting artwork, and generally disheveled appearance made that important selling point easy to miss. The expansive windows also lacked interest and were also easily missed.
As is often the case, the solution was both simple and inexpensive! I made the bed a focal point by adding a headboard ($40 from Goodwill and spray painted black), coordinating side tables (Target), contemporary table lamps (a Craigslist find), and narrow, vertical mirrors (Wal-Mart). A chic black Starbust-inspired mirror and a few coordinating throw pillows finish the space to create a neutral, but very chic motif. The windows were brought back to life by opening the blinds to let in natural light and by adding tailoired gray window panels (Ikea of course!).
All in, this bedroom makeover cost less than $350 and transformed an otherwise uninspired bedroom into a buyer-worthy retreat!
