Are your outdated bedrooms making it difficult to sell your house? Buyers today are more interested in luxurious master suites which double as relaxing retreats.
Before the pandemic, no one really cared much about their bedroom. People now are looking for somewhere to escape. Bedrooms are really becoming a place of refuge for Mom and Dad, because when kids are stuck at home, and they’re working from home, they need a place to escape.
Lighting upgrades. New bulbs and light fixtures are the best way to brighten any room, even your bedroom.
The bedrooms should be switched to LED lightbulbs. LEDs are brighter and more efficient than standard bulbs. Bright white light can make the space seem larger than it was before. Smart lighting can be a cost-effective option if you have the budget. People love convenience and don’t have to get up to switch off the lights or fan. You can also let more natural light in through windows. A transom window can be installed over a door if you have 12 foot ceilings.
Clear out your closets. A closet system or organizer is the best thing anyone can do to their bedroom. You can find many options and they will instantly add value to your house. A closet organizer is a great way to help buyers envision how their clothes will be organized.
Sell bedrooms by staging them. Although it may seem counterintuitive, if you have been eyeing a bedroom set for a while, you might consider spending before you sell your house. New furniture can make a big difference when staging. Old furniture can make a space look tired. A focal wall behind the headboard of your bed can be a cost-effective alternative to buying new furniture. Every bedroom’s focal point is the bed. A coordinated set of bedding and pillows can make a big difference in the first impression. You can remove any personal touches that might make it difficult for buyers to understand the space.
You can tone down bright colors. In children’s rooms, make sure you neutralize any paint before it is sold. Parents often let their children choose the color of the room’s paint. It ends up looking like bubble gum pink or jungle green. This is great for children, but it can be very harmful if you are selling. You can paint over it.
You can create a work space that is functional from your home. Multiple home offices are becoming more popular. Two people sharing a single room can be problematic if you are tied to your computer. To show buyers how they can optimize the space for work at home, stage spare bedrooms, dens or other unoccupied spaces as home office. A small home gym can be set up to attract buyers.
Make sure to upgrade the bathroom. A master bathroom is an important selling point for any home. Make sure that your master bathroom is neutral and clean. Don’t be afraid to add expensive touches like jetted tubs. It’s worth spending on quality showers in your master bathroom. You should get rid of the cheap glass showers. Although fiberglass shower enclosure kits can be inexpensive and simple to install, they do not have the WOW factor that homebuyers want.
