Where does the bed go when staging the bedroom?
When you live in the house - where ever you want the bed to go!
However, when you are selling or staging a vacant bedroom, this is a good time to think about where the bed goes.
The bed is the obvious focal point in a bedroom and as such should take center stage. If there is a magnificent window view, then help the buyer envision waking up to the wonderful view.
Sometimes the view is not so wonderful and in that case a wall of drapes behind a bed is a good idea.
The bed should not be so big it swallows the room, so if the room is not big enough for the KING bed, downsize the bed. I already hear you going say what? Selling is about space not about accomodating beds!
Do you the know the difference between a second bedroom and a Master Bedroom? The Master Bedroom should be roomy enough to accomodate a bed and still show a sitting area and that can be done with a comfortable chair, side table and table lamp. Stage with a book and a small plant and you are now in the Master Suite Business.
For showing the house, the TV, the electronics, the excercise equipment should all be moved to another part of the house other than the bedrooms. The Master should be all about relaxing in spa like peaceful surroundings with no work involved.
Here is an example showing the bed put at an angle between two window walls.
Here is a bed shown under the windows to make it the focal point as opposed to the built in wall shelving unit.
Here is a bed that fits nicely between the two windows.
Find the right spot for the bed and your bed automatically becomes the focal point. With the bed in place, the room comes together quickly as a staged room!
