Over the years, I’ve learned what looks good in photos for the MLS listings. When I can’t find what I’m looking for, I have to come up with inexpensive and fast DIY projects to pull a room together.
Create a Room
I was very lucky that the Realtor had an extra single bed at his house that he was willing to bring over so. It allowed me to showcase this as a child’s room. The target market for this house is a young family so I wanted to stage it accordingly.
As a Home Stager, I always have trouble finding artwork for young boy/young teen bedrooms. For this room, I printed off artwork of the hockey player and the skateboarder from Adobe at Staples for $7.99 each. They were put the in my old IKEA black frames. The black matting makes the artwork look much larger.
I chose the bold red graphic artwork since it went so well with my sport theme bedroom but they weren’t too busy. I get so much satisfaction when these DIY projects complete a room perfectly. 🙂
Now the room has lots of colour and personality. Adding a few accessories like the basketball and hockey sticks keep it fun and memorable as buyers walk through the house.
