Bedrooms are personal, so it’s no wonder why a buyer’s emotions may drive the sale in this room. These soothing spaces should be calming and comforting.
Home sellers usually overlook a master suite when it comes time to decorate, because it’s not a public area of the home. This allows the space to quickly be overrun by laundry, worn out decor and storage.

Here are some simple tips to help you stage your master bedroom to attract potential buyers.
Neutral Palette. Avoid bold paint colors in this space and instead choose a neutral color like beige or gray to create a relaxing base for this room — making it light, bright and spacious.
Focus on the Bed. The bed should be the main focal point in the room — so place it on the longest wall or across from the doorway so it sits center stage in the space. Also, remove clutter and unnecessary furnishings to help maximize square footage. Of course, you’ll want to use bedding that creates a luxe look —with lots of neutral colored linens and pillows.
Add More Lighting. Oftentimes, the master bedroom will have no overhead lighting, limiting the room’s brightness. Add table lamps on the nightstands and a floor lamp near the reading corner or sitting area. You should also open window treatments to let in more natural light.
Closets Sell Homes. Don’t forget to stage your master closet as well. Make sure it isn’t too cluttered and that clothes are hung or folded neatly, grouping them by length and color. It’s important to also keep the floor clear. You should try not to fill more than one-third of the closet space so it appears to have more room.
Master Bath Retreat. Clean the bathroom thoroughly, remove any personal products and showcase neutral plush towels, a plant or flower, and a few pampering accessories to set the scene of your favorite spa.
When staging your master bedroom suite, think of a comforting and relaxing space and you’ll accomplish exactly what today’s homebuyers are looking for in a bedroom. Happy selling!
