Master Bedroom Bookcase Transformation

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Atlanta Partners

Built-in bookcases are a terrific feature to have in a room.  They are also a place where photos, awards and mementos from trips tend to be placed.  When a house is on the market, we want buyers to admire the beauty and value of built-ins, but we don't want them to stop and look at the homeowner's past experiences.

This Master Bedroom is fortunate enough to have a fireplace flanked by bookcases.  Before Staging, the bookcases were filled with photos.

Master Bedroom Bookcases Before

We removed the photos and reaccessorized the shelves. We also moved the leather chaise from the other side of the room to create a reading nook next to the fireplace.  A large wooden bowl on the floor holds additional reading materials, and a lamp brings light to the space.

Angel -- You did a fabulous job making those bookshelves less personal and more appealing.  I like the way you added the chaise so buyers can envision that space as a place to relax and read.
