Adults spend the majority of their time in the bedroom. When selling a home there is a lot of attention paid to the kitchens, closets, yards, and the master bedroom. The bedroom is where a person is going to spend around a third of their day and should be comfortable.
According to sources from The Sleep, Ambassador people do not spend a great deal of time in their kitchen. People are beginning to pay attention to getting enough sleep. If a person sleeps fewer than six hours a night they are at a higher risk for diseases including obesity, diabetes, and heart issues. Some people may even live a shorter life.
There is no magic cure to help a person get enough sleep. Adults should try to get at least seven hours of sleep a night while some people may need more.
Buyers and sellers are looking at the master bedroom and know this room is important for those looking to get some quality sleep. There are many benefits to updating the bedroom. A nice and modern bedroom can get the seller more money for their home.
There are some ways that sellers can stage their bedrooms to make it look appealing to buyers.
1 Setting up the Bed
The bed should be placed away from the entrance of the room and out of the main path. The bed should also be in an area where a person can enjoy the view indoors or outdoors. A bed should have a pleasant headboard and should be dressed up with decorative pillows to make it look more inviting.
2 Window Treatments
While some rooms benefit from open light the bedroom should have window treatments that will add privacy and block out some of this light. A blackout shade can be put up behind a transparent shade. Motorized shades look great in the bedroom. They can allow light in and can be set on a timer.
3 Select the Correct Lights
Recessed lighting does not look good in the bedroom. Task lighting from laps or nightshades looks the best. Wall-mounted scones also look good in the bedroom. Decorative fixtures on the ceiling should be used for looks. Those that have trouble going to sleep may benefit from biological LED blubs that will go with the natural rhythm of the body and help the body regulate melatonin levels naturally.
4 Hide Electronics
Blue light from electronics can be made it hard for people to go to sleep. Before bed, a person needs to turn off the TV and their smart device. When showing off the master bedroom remove TV sets and other electronics. People have found TVs in other locations more favorable than the bedroom.
5 Soothing Colors
While color can be left to personal preference there are some guidelines. Soothing colors help make the bedroom feel relaxing. Colors should not be too dark, too bright or intense. They should be soft and calming. Some of the bed colors for the bedroom include pale blue, pale green, beige, and even gray or white.
6 Add some Comforts
Some comforts can be added to the bedroom if there is enough space. Carpeting or a large rug can provide a feeling of warmth. A chair or a night table can also make the room look great. If the room has access to the outdoors this should be played up. If there are windows they should be opened to allow some fresh air to enter the room. Fireplaces add a touch of coziness and they are visually appealing. The room should be free of clutter. Too much clutter is considered distasteful to many people.
Whether a person is looking to fix up their own home to sell it or to make it more cozy for their family it is important to pay attention to the master bedroom since a person will spend most of their time here.
