10 Practical, cost-effective tips to home stage a master bedroom

  1. Fix the nicks – do you have any bashes on the corners of the walls that a bit of Polyfilla could fix?
  2. Paint the room in neutral, calming colours. Cover up the vibrant colour scheme and stick to neutral colours.
  3. Remove all the furniture – except for the bed, the bedside tables, and the dresser.
  4. Declutter – Clear out all the clutter, all of it. Pack everything away and you will see that the bedroom will also start to look bigger.  Every day-to-day item should be packed away.
  5. Crisp clean linen – if you are in the mood to shop nothing lifts the look of the master bedroom better than crisp white linen.
  6. Lighting – is the lighting that you have in the room working to show off the room at its best. If you need to invest in new bedside table lamps remember this is a small investment to make.  You want to make this room as light and airy as possible.
  7. Window dressings – lighten the windows as much as possible. Let in as much light as you can.  Clean the blinds or wash the curtains and make sure the windows sparkle.
  8. Ease up on the décor – remember less is more. You want to show off to potential buyers how stunning the master bedroom is, you are not focusing on wowing them with your bedroom décor.
  9. Depersonalise – remember to pack away all your personal effects and that goes for family photos or wedding photos that you may have in your master bedroom.
  10. Clean – make sure everything in your master bedroom is absolutely clean and sparkly.

The basics

Let’s not forget that it is not necessary to home stage every room in your house.  You want to focus on the rooms that you know need attention.  You want to do only as much as you need to do.  Remember you are going for the neatly organised, clean, sparkly, fresh, minimalist look in most of the rooms of your home, and especially the master bedroom.
