Top 5 Accessories You Need to Buy for DIY Staging: Day 1 #1

Many sellers don't have the resources to hire a stager.  My intention is to help you by offering tips on the top items you can purchase for do-it-yourself-staging.  You don't have to spend a lot of money to make your house appeal to potential buyers.  And, you can take these items with you to use in your new home.  Now that's a great return on investment!
1.  New Bed Treatments

Selling your house is the perfect time to say bye-bye to those shabby bedspreads--especially in the Master. Master Bedrooms are a 'hot spot' with potential buyers.  It is the place your new owners will begin and end their day. A Master Bedroom needs to read as cozy, comfortable--literally a retreat from outside stresses (kids, jobs and their new mortgage payment on your house).  Bed treatments should be sumptuous.  Some bed-N-bag treatments are a good bang for your buck.  However, you will need to cull through crappy fabric, ugly prints and poor construction to find a keeper.  Shopping online for bed treatments can be risky.  Good reviews on the product can help you make a decision.   A simple coverlet and shams can work wonders as well.  Down comforters and faux down comforters are currently on Winter Clearance.  Down comforters are look lux and opulent.

Bed treatments should never appear skimpy.  I always recommend buying a size up: King size for a Queen bed, etc  A King bed can be 'cheated' by adding a dramatic dust ruffle.  You can also place sheets between the mattress and box spring to create a bed skirt.  (WARNING:  the 'sheet treatment' is tedious business and you will need help.)

All the fancy lumbar, Euro, and decorative pillows are pretty but not necessary.  The object is for the bed to look great.  Crooked, casually tossed pillows look messy.  If you have the time and inclination to perfectly position all pillows, everyday that your house is on the market--have at it!
