Regardless of anything your home’s bedrooms may have that set them apart, a skylight, direct access to the patio, or a fireplace for instance, the most important aspects of staging a bedroom comfort and space. That’s what potential buyers want to see and feel in a bedroom.

You do this with neutral paint color, furniture arrangement, lighting, and perhaps a few accessory pieces.

So with that in mind:

  • Earth tones (or any soft color) for paint and overall color schemes will appeal to most buyers. 
  • Keep the furniture to a minimum; a bed, dresser, and one or two other items is enough unless you have an unusually large bedroom. Either way, the idea is to make the room seem as large as possible. Too many furniture pieces will likely convey a cramped feeling. 
  • Thin out the clothes in your closets, and I suggest you really take out most of them. You’re going to have to pack them eventually, so get as much of it done now as you possibly can. Your closets will appear larger and that’s a good thing. A home can’t have enough closet space.
  • Buy new, top quality bedding. It will improve the look of the bedrooms, and as you will be taking it with you when you leave, consider it an investment in getting your home sold.
  • Remove personal items such as photos. The purpose here is for buyers to see themselves in the home … not you and your family.

The idea here is to make a bedroom seem as an ideal place to relax. Do all the things outlined above and you will have done that well.
