At Bayleys Marlborough we know that when it comes to open homes first impressions count. You need to think about making your property attractive to as broad an audience as possible. Sometimes that means thinking outside the box (room).
Lots of properties have a small extra room. You might have used it as a storage room or home office. If you want to market it as a single bedroom in your open homes, you need to think about the best way to present it.
Here are three tips to help you make that small room look like an extra bedroom.
Every bedroom needs a bed:
But rather than using a traditional single bed, why not consider a day bed? These will often take less space, but more importantly, show open home visitors that your small space can be multi-functional. We love the stylish Lily Day Bed from Danske Mobler. Find it HERE.
Create an illusion:
Use light paint colours and mirrors to make your room seem airy and spacious. Even your choice of window dressings can help to create the illusion of space. A roman blind or recessed Venetian blinds will ensure your small room feels larger than if you close it in with full curtains.
Use your window:
In a small bedroom, wall space is precious. By placing your bed directly underneath the window, you will save space. You can also use any window ledge for lamps and other items. This arrangement means you don’t need to consider a bedside table. Therefore saving even more precious space.
Invest in vertical:
In a small room, making the most of vertical wall spaces is essential. But keep it simple. Think floating shelves with a hanging rail beneath, or a sleek cubby hole system.
Fold it up:
No room for a bedroom chair? Use a sleek, foldable stool instead. We love this leather folding stool from Green with Envy.
