Welcome back to a wonderful Wednesday full of home staging secrets! This week we’ll tackle the master bedroom. This is a bedroom completed by my students from my 3-day Certified Staging Professionals Course in Arlington. Please visit www.stagingtraining.com – my next class is Atlanta, GA April 20-22, 2013!
You don’t spend as much time in your bedroom as you probably do in the living room or kitchen area, however, often the bedroom is where you feel (or should feel) most relaxed! You can really change the look and mood of your room by just redesigning what you already have, so don’t feel like you have to break the bank! Take these tips to make your master bedroom the most relaxed, sophisticated room it can be!
Pillows/Bedding | Forget old worn out pillows, and spruce up life and look of your bed with a set of two standard pillows that act as a foundation for your pillows. Then you can add smaller decorative pillows as accents that either pull in the main color of the room or provide some contrast. See the changes I’ve made below!
Lighting | Check out what a major difference having two matching lamps makes! In the before photo, the room has a less cohesive look and feel; without the symmetry the room’s focal point goes missing and it’s hard for your eyes to really get a great look of the entire room as a whole. Did you see the post I just wrote about lighting and lamps? Check it out here for other lighting tips!
Furniture | Organize the furniture in away that maximizes the floor space especially if you have a smaller sized room. Here in the before image you can see how close the end of the bed is to the armoire. In the after picture, it is moved further away and replaced by a mirror and a beautiful plant which is always a great addition to any room (real or fake!). Additionally, remove all things from the top of night stands and organize them in their shelves below. This way there will be no clutter and it will look and make you feel relaxed!
