The Importance of Bedding When Staging a Bedroom
There are a lot of details that go into successfully staging a home for sale. Bedrooms, especially the master bedroom, hold a lot of weight in a buyer’s analysis of a home. This is a room where it is especially important to make them feel at home.
The bed is the focal point of a bedroom, so the bedding is crucial to making it look great. A messy bed is an immediate turn-off to buyers and sends the wrong message. To make your bedroom look clean and relaxing, follow these tips on bedding for home staging.
Bedding Tips for Home Staging
You can never go wrong with white
White linens are the most classic choice for bedding. You can pick up white bedding at a variety of stores without spending a lot. There’s a good reason you always see white bedding in hotels: it’s timeless, chic, and easy on the eyes. It makes the room feel relaxing and luxurious without being too distracting. In home staging, hotel rooms are a great source of inspiration because most buyers love the feeling they get in a beautiful, clean hotel room.
Keep it simple
Simple is key with home staging. When there is too much going on in terms of color and pattern, it becomes distracting to the eye, especially in MLS photos. A clean, streamlined look is best. White linens are best with just a few colorful accents, such as accent pillows and a throw. If you do have a patterned comforter, fold it at the base of the bed for a nice pop of contrast.
A few layers of pillows always make a bed feel more luxurious and welcoming. You can also add a throw or comforter at the base of the bed for even more style. Having a bed that looks elegant, cozy, and inviting will spark buyers’ imaginations and make them feel that much more at home in the space.
Press your linens
A nice extra step when staging your bedding is to iron the linens, including the pillowcases. In hotels, the bedding is always crisp and wrinkle-free. This makes the room look cleaner and that much more sophisticated. Though it will take some effort, it goes a long way in the presentation of a bedroom.
