Air Beds to the Rescue for Staging

Lately, I seem to be Staging a lot of empty homes. It’s a well known fact that rooms look larger with furniture in them and they are certainly more memorable and inviting.

These two bedrooms only had a desk in one and a night table in the other.  I am very grateful that the Realtor I worked with provided 2 single airbeds. Unfortunately, having a bed in a room isn’t enough.  You still have to add fresh linens, artwork, lamps, drapes and accessories to create a ‘story’ in a room.

We didn’t have time to paint this room a neutral colour but I brought in the perfect linens to work with the paint colour.  The fresh white drapes diffuse the colour a bit and it also works with the white night table and accessories. Pops of the pink also draw your eye around the room so you notice the entire space.

My goal is for a little girl to tell her parents she wants ‘this room’. Buying a home is an emotional process as well as a financial one.

It’s the little details in the accessories that make a room memorable.

You would never know that both the beds in these two rooms were airbeds.  Rearranging the furniture made more sense and showed more floor space which is important in a child’s room for playing.

Even though buyers are not buying the furniture, they will be able to visualize their children living and using this great space.  The desk also shows the size of what a typical dresser is as well.  The purpose is to show an accurate scale of the room and you can’t do when the room is empty.

Who wouldn’t want to go and cuddle on this bed and enjoy the room.

I think we accomplished our mission here 🙂
