Selling your home can be a difficult process; especially if one of the most important places your property – the bedroom – is putting potential buyers away. But there’s a simple trick you can use to help your house sales quickly and trouble-free.
Putting your home on the market is a big step and to ensure the best results, homeowners should consider every room in the house and take the time to make it unique and desirable.
The bedroom can often be ignored and overlooked, but it is actually one of the most important places in the house. Prospective buyers want to see their new environment and have an idea of how their future homes look.
Making a memorable bedroom will contribute a stress free sale from home.
Here are some of best tips on the importance of the bedroom and how to improve the look and feel of the room to impress guests.
1. Dress up the bed
Give your personality to bed. Put pillows, cushions and blankets along the way to add character to your bedroom. Like the center of the room, the bed should be eye-catching, deluxe and gives the feel of a unique room.
Make sure the bed looks “ready for photos” – is the type of bed you want to see when viewing a potential property?
2. Bedding – one size doesn’t fit all
A good makeover is to use a bed linen that is one size too big. This creates the illusion that the bed is bigger than what it does, and makes your bed luxurious, expensive and beautiful. The bed is the first furniture that the buyer will notice, so it’s very important that it looks deluxe and extravagant.
3. Light Up Your Life
Given the function of the bedroom as a haven for rest and relaxation, a harsh overhead lamp should go. Indirect lighting and reading lamps will increase comfort and create a sense of calm. As an extra, you can choose reading lamps that have unique design and put them beside your table.
4. The position of the furniture
Place the bed so it becomes the focal point of the room. This affects the buyer’s perception of the room. Consider walkways and access to wardrobes, windows and private bathrooms. The bedroom should look nice but also practical and accessible.
5. Keep the room simple
Remove all clutter and store personal items. It is important to know the space and potential of the bedroom, so buyers can create space in their minds without any hassles. Every item in the room must have a purpose and place.
6. A relaxing retreat
The bedroom is a place to relax and unwind after a long day. Choose casual and soothing colors such as blue tones and earthy. A small touch between fresh candles or flowers and ornaments is a small addition and will make a big difference to the first visit of a potential buyer.
7. Uncluttered and free from dangerous materials
You have to make sure that your bedroom is tidy! Also, it is important to make sure that your bedroom is free from dangerous materials such as asbestos, mold, and leads.

Words from the expert:
“When you get to the bedroom, adding a few simple touches that can make amazing photos is the key. Think about the kind of pictures that interest you such as what you see in magazines. Soft pillows and decorative pillows on the bed, as well as cease-free duffet, is an easy place to start. The most important recommendation is to make the bedroom a soothing place. This is a place where people want to relax, so keep regular shades and avoid bad patterns. When it’s summer, open the window to keep it cool and soothing. You should show how comfortable this room is. ” – Emma Peake, real estate agent of YOPA.
“If the kitchen is the heart of the house, then the bedroom is a sacred place! Of course everybody’s holy place looks a little different, so when you sell your house try to keep it apart and make sure your bedroom is as quiet as possible, making it easy for potential buyers to imagine it as their own.’ – Kelly Harrison, Marketing Assistant Real Estate Agent London, JOHNS & CO.
