Staging Your Westwood Master Bedroom to Sell

Staging Your Westwood Master Bedroom to Sell


When staging your Westwood Master Bedroom to sell, it is important to "think like a Buyer". What do Buyers want? What do they dream about?

I believe that Buyers want a Master bedroom that is a retreat to get away from the stresses of work and daily life challenges. They want to think of this room as a special place to rest and clear their heads. Here are some suggestions to think about:

Paint-A soft spa like color such as in blue/gray, soft gray or green makes the room feel relaxing. One of my favorites is Tranquility by Benjamin Moore.

Keep it Simple-Remove piles of clutter and extra furniture.Take out anything that reminds you of work. That includes exercise machines as well as desks, printers ,etc.

Add Romance-Layers of bedding and pillows add a romantic touch. Keep it gender neutral and not too frilly. Add texture with throws, pillows, rugs that are soft to the touch. Ideally the bed should be the first thing that Buyers see-beautifully made up. 

Create Other Relaxing Spaces- If the room is large enough, create a reading area . You can do this with a cozy chair, perhaps a throw and a book with a pair of glasses on top.

Add Fresh Flowers-Fresh flowers are a treat. Subliminally it tells the Buyers what a special place this is.

Appeal to the Senses-You may spray the sheets with lavender, a scent that appeals to both genders. Or play soft music.

The goal is to make the Buyers fall in love with the Master Bedroom and feel like this would be a great retreat for them. And the bonus is that you can enjoy this newly staged space while you are selling it:)

What a weak attempt by Patch to localize the blogs by adding "Westwood" to the article title (there were duplicates posted to many other towns' Patch websites). This blog is well written and has good ideas for staging a bedroom, but Patch should just leave the town names out of the article title... it's just an attempt to spin the Patch Westwood website as locally/town focused when that's just not the case.

WW Resident, to clarify: we don't alter the blogs - their content or their headlines. It was submitted with this headline. Anyone can submit a blog to Patch and provided it doesn't violate our terms of use, it'll be approved as is.

Dear WW Resident, I am sorry that you feel that way. I write these blogs for free for the Patch and choose to add the town name.-it is not the Patch that does this. Hopefully I am providing good content to each of the towns that I write for. I wish that you would be more transparent about who you are. If so I would be more than happy to talk with you in person about this. I am not really sure why this upsets you so much:) Take Care, Marianne

You're right Marianne, I'm in the wrong. I am frustrated that what was a useful platform for town news is more of a general/regional voting poll website and forum for political discussions. I shouldn't have singled out your headline and that you renamed it across different Patch town websites; the blog contributers are one of the remaining positive features of Westwood Patch. As I said before this article has great ideas (as did the one on staging kitchens).

WW Resident-Thanks so much for your response. I do want to keep creating good content for a number of local towns and really appreciate your input. The last thing that I would want to do is upset you or anyone reading this:). My goal is to provide relevant content that is helpful! I have staged homes in Westwood and love that beautiful town.(My brother and Sister In Law lived there for many years). My goal is to help! I welcome your feedback! Keep warm in this storm and thanks again for your note! Best, Marianne
