One Night Stand

I passed by a guy today with a T-shirt reading, "Available for a One Night Stand". (Yes, really.) Judging by this guy's appearance and the age of the T-shirt, he has yet to be taken up on his offer.

Wonder where I get inspiration for my posts?  'One Night Stand' guy reminded me that I regularly recommend using only one night stand for staging. 

Opening up the wee bit of space one night stand takes up,  makes a room appear larger.  Large rooms sell.




Look at this bedroom through 'buyer's eyes'.  Removing the night stand in the corner of  the room will open it up.



I know it is inconvenient, but your house is only on the market a short time.  Try using something that can be moved, like an ottoman, for night time use.


More later,

Linda

  2. For staging, though, I don't think the bedside table is the biggest problem in the fourth photo, lovely though the room is. I'd remove the fabric draped from the bed to the ceiling and the bench at the end of the bed.

    1. Adele, I agree with you! I was trying to show a picture where moving the night stand would open up the space in the corner. Thanks for your comment.

    You're a stager, that's cool!
    I love decorating so to be able to decorate lots of different houses must be fun, challenging and rewarding:)

    I love the trimworks of the last picture!
    Walls in my house have no trimworks and I was just thinking to add some and your pic inspires me, yeah, trimwork doesn't need to be white!
