Preparing Your Home For Sale - Sleeping in Style
Tips to help you sell your home quickly
When it Comes to Bedrooms, Size Matters!
After the number of bedrooms, buyers are most interested in the size. Use neutral or receding colours to make your bedrooms seem larger and reduce the amount of furniture to maximise the feeling of space. Be clever with the space you have. If you have a small bedroom use a double bed instead of a queen, or bunks in a children's room.
You can never have enough storage in a bedroom! That's why you'll see people peeking in cupboards and wardrobes at an open house. To reduce the demands on limited space in small bedrooms, consider having built-in robes installed, but keep the interior simple because if you include all the bells and whistles you won't recoup the costs.
Give me Sanctuary
Buyers want a bedroom where they can escape the worries of life. You can make your bedroom a sanctuary by adding a little luxury with fresh linen, puffed up pillows and extra cushions, a comfy chair and a few special features, like candles and perfume bottles.
Light and Airy
Bedroom lighting is really important in creating atmosphere. To give a romantic feel, consider adding dimmer switches and bedside lamps. If you are having evening viewings, quality lighting is essential.
Less is More
However large your bedrooms are, they will look small if they are cluttered with your personal knick-knacks. When it comes time to sell make sure you clear away the clutter. That doesn't mean your rooms need to look totally impersonal, a few exotic perfume bottles, a vintage tea cup by the bed or a romantic candle display can make the room feel like home for potential buyers.
