I recently finished home staging an occupied home in Murrieta that had a master bedroom that was challenging. Why, would the master bedroom be challenging, you ask? Well, this bedroom had a waterbed in it! Not that there is anything wrong with a waterbed....but this one was a little sad. It looked like it was sinking. Master bedrooms need to have a retreat like appeal so the challenge was now on!
Ok here is the "Before":
YIKES is right! What on earth am I going to do with this Master Bedroom waterbed. I planned on adding artwork , lamps, decorative pillow and greenery but I knew it would not enhance the room enough to distract from the sinking waterbed. So, I asked for a few opinions from friends and stagers and some said "It is what it is." While others said I should replace it with a REAL bed.
I tossed and turned (not in bed) with the idea of replacing the bed but I didn't want to interfere with the home seller's lifestyle too much. I understand it is HARD to live in a staged home and I wanted to make the experience as easy as possible.
Then I got the AH-HA moment. And Viola...here is the after.......
Yes, this is the same waterbed BUT with an air mattress on top! Simply as that! Sometimes I find that I think too hard. :)
The homeowner's loved the idea and are more then willing to add it to the bed every morning. They understand the value of staging their home for today's market.
