31 Days to a Staged Home :: Day 22, The Master Bedroom & Bathroom


Hello!
Welcome to Day 10!
If this is your first time to this series,
 I recommend starting from Day 1, HERE.





The master bedroom is one of the spaces in your house 
on which buyers cast a keen and discerning eye.
They need to know if this room is big enough, bright enough, quiet enough, and cozy enough.



It is quite simple, actually, to stage a master bedroom and bathroom.

Assuming you've already 
declutteredcleanedupdated the lighting, considered the small stuff, and painted
then this room should be almost ready.


Tomorrow, I'll be talking about Other Bedrooms.
Hope to see you then!


Any questions?
Please ask!
I will answer them on Day 31 :: Q & A.

Blessings to you while you make your home!



And now it's here, all the information from all 31 days of the series, in one book.
Just click on the book below to be taken to Amazon to get a copy for yourself or to share.





Happy Staging! Happy Selling!

  1. We have a beautiful electric fireplace in our master bedroom. Is that I piece that you would keep in there? I know it isn't on your list, but I think it helps make the room feel cozy.

  2. Hi, there! I wanted to thank you for this great series. I look forward to it every day. We are in the process of staging our home for sale this spring as well, and it has been SO helpful to run across your great blog and especially this series. I have a question but I think it might take me a bit to get to it. Here goes:

    Our 1977 home is quite large but really does not have a master bathroom. It's a Cape Cod with two bedrooms and a full hall bath downstairs and what used to be two bedrooms and a bath upstairs. When we bought it in 2005, the upstairs also had a 40 x 15 completely unfinished attic that was accessed through a door in one of the bedrooms--all of this on the second floor. It also has a separate inlaw suite with its own bath on the main floor. We converted the second floor attic into two large rooms: a sort of Teen Cave and bedroom and then the upstairs bedrooms that feeds into this converted attic was converted into a large laundry room and deluxe closet. These rooms all flow together. The idea was that eventually the Teen Cave/bedroom/laundry room would be a master suite with its own bathroom (currently the bedroom we added in the former attic is completely plumbed for a full bath), but my husband started a new job out of the immediate area, so we find we will be leaving before we undertake that particular renovation. I do have plans drawn up by a designer, though, that outline the process. We decided to do it in a three-step process and only completed two of the steps (but it's all complete to this point, no construction or anything). The third step was to convert the now-bedroom into a master bath. Here is an old blog link to a photo of the now-attic bedroom soon after we finished renovations: http://seanna.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8349912ee69e200e553aca9d78834-pi . This is the Teen Cave: http://seanna.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8349912ee69e200e55390ecdd8833-pi . I'm standing at the door to the attic bedroom, looking toward the teen cave and laundry room/closet area. The existing second floor bath is off the small landing beyond that, and the current master bedroom is off of that landing as well. These spaces are all finished and furnished now, obviously.

    Our downstairs bath was completely renovated two years ago and is quite pretty and updated--it should be a "wow" room. Here is a link to a photo on my old blog: http://seanna.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8349912ee69e20133f1808fcc970b-pi . Two bedrooms are in close proximity, with one an office (can't be changed because I work at home full time) and one a college girl's room that is staged as a guest room but might be suitable as a master? The actual "master" is upstairs, though.

    Obviously without putting quite a bit of money into finishing the attic conversion by creating a fourth bathroom/master bath, which does not seem cost effective, we are sort of left without a master bath. It's possible the inlaw suite could be considered as a master bedroom, but it's completely separate from the rest of the house and I'm not entirely sure that would work.

    OK so FINALLY I'm getting to my questions:

    Should we just try to make the upstairs bathroom a sort of master bath, even though it does not directly connect into the bedroom? It's just a few feet outside the bedroom. Or maybe stage the downstairs college girl room as a master and make the downstairs bath a sort of master bath? I was also thinking we could make a sort of "house book" and include a copy of the upstairs attic conversion that shows the plan for that side of the upstairs to have been a very deluxe master suite.

    Ack! This might be too much question for you!! Anyway, thanks for reading, thanks for doing this wonderful series, and your thoughts are appreciated!!

  3. Obviously without placing quite a bit of cash into completing the basement transformation by developing a 4th bathroom/master shower, which does not seem affordable, we are kind of remaining without a expert shower.

  4. It looks absolutely stunning! Now that is what you call a home. :) Anyway, your whole place looks great. I hope that you can maintain it that way for a long time. Thanks for the share!
