Bedroom Becomes Study After Staging

Bedroom staged as a study gives new purpose when selling.  A while back, I came across these photos from a townhome that Redesign Etc. staged years ago but these still show how to re-purpose a room.  This particlular room was on the lowest level, and had become a catchall that wasn't being used for guests anyway.  We were able to move and rearrange the sellers furnishings around to make this into a more functional room. Being able to use the homeowners existing furniture was a huge budget saver!  They didn't have alot of accessories, so we had to use them sparingly for this room.

In this part of Houston, most of the lower level rooms are used for study's or multi-purpose rooms. Since it's the only access to the backyard, there also needed to be a path or flow to the back door.  This was also the first room you saw when you entered the front door.   Staging it was important to let buyers know they could use as a study since there was no other space for a home office and no built-ins with a desk.  

Just a simple example of how home stagers can redesign or define the space of a house for sale and give it new purpose with a new look.

Wallace, yes, it seems everyone has several computers nowadays and want the space for an office.

Rene, thanks, it really looked so much better in person, but it did give off a nice glow.

Thanks Carl, it was nice, because it was the only room on that level and you had the view of the backyard too.

Thanks Rose, we ended up using the beds upstairs in a bedroom that had been a nursery.

Hi Cindy ~ What a fantastic (and economical) transformation of a space that was previously very confusing to buyers!  Everyone wants home offices today, and your staging of the space is much more functional and practical than the "catch all" guest bedroom configuration. Sellers in the Houston area should definitely contact Redesign Etc for professional home staging advice -- you've more than proven your value here!!

Hi Maureen, yes it was about as economical as you can get when looking to redesign you house for sale.  I know most people have have at least 2+ computers, usually more, and it's so much better to have a place for them.  You're so right, staging with your own furnishings, and re-purposing is so cost effective!

Sussie, thanks so much, the rest of the house really turned out nice, maybe one of these days I'll post those photos too.  ; )

Cindy. Buyers get nervous about bedrooms with exterior doors so repurposing this as a study was PERFECT!

Cindy- excellent!  And I love that you showed how you could achieve this using the homeowners own furnishings.  The room is now so inviting I know it would be where I'd head if I wanted some "me" time.

Hi Kathy!  It really had a great view of the backyard with large bushes and trees.

Thanks Michelle, yes, it was in one of the urban area of Houston with lots of stairs!

Ha Julia...You're right as always, Lol!

Nice change! Sellers were probably shaking their heads wondering why they didn't think of that; happens here.

Hi Teral, we are all guilty of that, we get used to seeing our home in the same light.  That's why the advice of REALTORS and stagers are so important when getting your home ready to sell.

Great repurpose of a bedroom Cindy! Home offices are so popular now, if the target market can use an office, then it's a good idea to show one!

Wow, what a difference. A lot of sellers forget that what makes a room liveable for them, won't especially sell it. Great example.
