Kokomo Home Stager Shares Bedroom Secrets

MasterBR_1I recently read a great article in  “Good Housekeeping Magazine” entitled 10 Things Every Bedroom Needs.  These are great tips to go by because they appeal to everyone and help create a space for one to retreat to for relaxation.

  1. A Plush Rug – Even if you already have carpet, it is okay to add a nice accent rug as an additional layer
  2. Throw Pillows – 1 to 6 pillows is a good amount depending on the size of your bed.  Throw pillows are meant to make the bed more appealing when made.
  3. A Place to Sit….Other Than the Bed – Everyone needs a quiet spot to hide from their kids or spouse (or parents)  to read their favorite magazine.
  4. No Electronics – You have the whole house to use electronics!  Save the bedroom for total relaxation.
  5. All Your Favorite Things – You want to feel happy as soon as you walk into your bedroom…surround yourself with whatever makes  you feel happiest.
  6. Functional Nightstands – They should be the right height and large enough to be able to easily fit your nighttime essentials such as lamp, alarm clock, tissues, glass of water, etc.
  7. A Great Mattress – You spend 1/3 of your day laying down on your mattress so it is important to find a mattess that allows you to get a good nights rest.
  8. Calming Artwork – Anything that will stir up good feelings while you are trying to fall asleep.
  9. Drama – Whether it is in the wall color, window treatments, or furniture, at least one dramatic element in the room will create a sense of glamour.
  10. A Theme -Some examples of themes night be “beach”, “stripes”, “European”, etc.  Having a theme in mind will help you when shopping for items and putting the room together.
