Are You Faking it in the Bedroom?

By
Real Estate Agent with Dove Realty Inc.

No it's not what you think.

It's just another way to make a bed without dragging out a ton of linens.

  1. First of all you don't need a full set of sheets. A flat twin will do if you put it on sideways and short sheet the bed. Needless to say, don't try this in an occupied home.
  2. You can use a king size coverlet with the top and bottom turned around (sideways). That way you don't have to mess with a bedspread and a dust ruffle.
  3. In this small bedroom I used plant stands for side tables and cleared everything else out except 1 dresser..

This is defiantly a case where less is more. 

If you'd like to make the most of your home when you put it on the market, call me first.

BTW, are those doggies Shih Tzus? I have one and I adore that little girl, although she is very much a princess.

Great suggestions.  Bedrooms with "tired" bedding are a real pet peeve of mine.

Like the drapes too.  Does the king coverlet cover the entire bed?
