Master bedroom, is a huge selling point when selling your home. Many buyers want a 5-star quality master bedroom when purchasing a home. As a redesigner, this is one area I noticed, that is usually neglected!! It isn’t difficult or expensive to achieve a high-end look. Here are some easy step to achieving the bedroom of your dream!
Don’t try to fight it, instead embrace and work around it. Long narrow vertical windows can be a problem, but if you get floor-to-ceiling curtains and hang the rod 6″-8″ outside the window sill, that will give the illusion of a wider window.
This is one place you can and should match. Matching nightstand and lamps will give the room asymmetric look and feel. This will enhance that soothing and serene feeling that we want to achieve.
Use fabric that can withstand stains. When selling your home, try not to use bold colors, jarring patterns, or lacy fabric. If you using a pattern, make sure you repeat it and keep it simple.
When choosing sheets for your comforter, my rule of thumb is to match the bedspread. Too many colors are jarring to your senses. Make sure your wall color coordinates with your bedding and has a cohesive look.
Don’t try to have a high fashion bedroom that only looks good but it is difficult to live in. Be practical and make it livable.
Remember this is your bedroom, use items that will appeal to your sense. Limit the amount of furniture, especially if you’re selling your home (overcrowding is a huge problem in bedrooms) and if you can at all help it, don’t put your office in the bedroom. Too many times I’ve seen the master bedroom used as storage areas!! This is a place to retrieve from your hectic life!! Remember master bedrooms are a huge selling point when selling your home!
