Once you have decided to sell your home, it is time to makeover some rooms in the house to prepare it for potential buyers. One room that could always use an update is the bedroom. These bedroom makeover ideas will change your ordinary bedroom into a relaxing retreat that even the fussiest buyer will love.
A fresh coat of paint will go a long way in updating a room. Choose muted tones that create the illusion of a larger room and more space. The colors on the walls should compliment or go well with the current bedding, to create a connected and flowing look. Clean out and paint the interior of the closets because serious buyers will look in the closet and the inevitable scuffs on the walls can easily be painted over and will show buyers your attention to detail.
If the current bedding is outdated or in bad shape, consider purchasing new sheets, bedspread, and decorator pillows. Even though the buyer is not necessarily looking at your bedding, it can create an overall look that can add or detract from a space. New bedding will make a big difference in the overall appeal of the room. Also choose curtains that allow the natural light from the windows to come in, making the room seem bright and airy. Replace outdated light fixtures and hardware on doors for an inexpensive, but effective update.
Remove clutter from the room and be sure that the room is easy to straighten up on short notice. This room is used on a daily basis so it is impossible to keep it looking like a model, but choose accessories that do not require daily straightening or dusting. Following these simple and inexpensive makeover ideas will create a space that is an inviting and relaxing retreat.
