Staging Dos and Don’ts for Your Master Bedroom


The Master Bedroom Is Where We Spend the Most Personal Time in Our Homes. When Selling Your Property, the Staging and Presentation of This Room Will Impact How a Buyer Feels About the Entire House. Let’s Take a Look at Some Guidelines to Showcase Your Master Bedroom Favorably.

Don't have Clutter

This may seem obvious, but it’s essential. Clutter can turn an otherwise pleasing space into an unappealing one. It’s well worth the time and effort to remove excess personal touches. As you’re about to start the process of moving, use this as an opportunity to donate and throw out old and unused items. A famous organizing consultant once said to remove anything that “doesn’t spark joy.” Use that as your guiding principle as you go through your room. Keep it neat and simple when you showcase the house.

Do Clean the Space

Once you remove clutter, you’ll have an easier time dusting, vacuuming, and mopping the space. A thoroughly cleaned master bedroom is inviting and will positively influence the way prospective buyers experience the space. Consider hiring a professional cleaner as well. It’ll save you time and guarantee a buyer won’t be put off by a wandering dust bunny.

Don't Remove Everything

Even though the process of staging encourages you to remove as many items as possible, there is a balance to be had. To keep the space from feeling like a hotel room, carefully stage tasteful items here and there. A book on the nightstand. A vase of flowers on the dresser. Perhaps some décor from your travels on the desk. Choose what feels right and elevates the space.

Do Set the Tone

Again, buyers will be assessing the master bedroom as their most personal space. Cultivating a warm and inviting atmosphere is particularly important here. Keep shades and curtains wide open to fill the space with natural light. Light a candle with a gentle scent to soothe the senses. Play soft classical or jazz music on a portable speaker to add to the overall feeling of comfort. These subtle touches will subconsciously signal to your buyers this is a safe and relaxing space.

Don't Forget About the Bed

Just as the master bedroom makes or breaks the house, the bed makes or breaks the room. If you have options, choose a bed that is at an appropriate scale to the room, allowing you to fit a nightstand on either side. Plus, don’t underestimate the importance of bedding. Choose your cleanest and most pleasing sheets and bedspreads, and make the bed neatly. Adding simple decorative pillows and a duvet can make the space feel more luxurious and consequently elevate the buyer’s interest in the whole home.
