Staging a Bedroom, Virtually Speaking: a Design and Merchandising Perspective.
Kimo Stowell, Real Estate Merchandiser (HI Pro Realty LLC)

 

Whether designing a property for sale or for personal purposes, the essential design process is the same.  Understanding the architectural interplay with decor will help create a room that leaves a positive impression on the potential buyer or design client instead of leaving them befuddled or worse, disappointed.

JDS Consulting: Virtual Bedroom Remodel Before Pic

In this this virtual bedroom design we were merchandising the property to function as a second home and or rental. With that in mind the room was to be used by the teenage daughter of our clients when used as a second home and a second bedroom in case of a rental. We were designing for both personal taste and general merchandising at the same time which means finding the intersecting elements of what might otherwise be a contradictory trajectory, or in other words a project going no where.

The daughters favorite color is blue, so we immediately incorporated a soft denim which would compliment the khaki colored buildings dominating the view from the room. Since the view is a major focal point the windows design is very noticeable, especially the rather odd looking crank windows on the left. Inorder to minimilize the look of the crank windows we chose a modern rectangular motif for the space which was repeated throughout the bedroom and apartment.

JDS Consulting of Hawaii: virtual design bedroom

We selected gender neutral accents so that the room would appeal to as many persons as possible considering the parameters of the project, with the photo art of bamboo complimenting the vertical architectural elements both indoors and out. The plumeria blossom pillow could easily be removed to neutralize the personal preferences even further.

Virtual Master Suite Make Over Part II: The Master Bath 

Virtual Master Suite Make Over Part I

JDS Consulting Before Pic

 

In continuation of our virtual master suite makeover we move to the bathroom of our Nu'uanu, Hawaii Condo project. Our clients have a tiled water closet in the master bath separating the bath and toilet from the vanity area which is carpeted. For this post and project we focused on the vanity area alone.

Renovating Kitchens and bathrooms traditionally returns the most money on your investment at the resale of the property. As Real Estate Merchandisers we advise are clients to maximize return by economizing on big ticket items like granite and hardwood by searching for on sale, discontinued or remnant products online and locally.

When it comes to the appraisal, granite is granite regardless of how much you paid for it. Spending a little time to see whats on sale can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars both pre and post sale of the property. The same goes for hardwood and fixtures.

Avoid buying the top of the line, most expensive products, instead select quality middle of the road fixtures that are easy to clean and made by reputable manufacturers. There are substantial savings to be made if you check online for close-outs and sales.

Our clients had decided to use Cherry hard wood in the kitchen remodel, and a dark oatmeal Berber throughout the condo. To coordinate those choices We compiled some options for flooring in the vanity area of the master bath to include a strawberry Coral Stone, cream Travertine, Eco-friendly Cork, and asymmetrical Slate tiles.

As they had yet to decide on the flooring for the Kitchen, entry, and hallways we suggested that whatever flooring was decided for those areas we would continue into the master bath vanity in replacement of the carpeting. We suggested a double vanity and Dark Cherry cabinets with granite or coral for a countertop in the Bath but suggested that a lighter stained Cherry could work as well in contrast with the Kitchen Cabinets.

The renderings below gave the client an idea of how the combination of different materials might work with various wall colors.

When it came to fixtures we suggested brushed nickle for the faucets and drawer pulls and offered some online sale items that could be compared to local pricing(minus the shipping costs to Hawaii). JDS Consulting-Decor Design and Home Staging

The final result was a sophisticated bright and warm space that could withstand both home owners and renters wear and tear without too much maintenance needed. I suggested an Asian Art piece consisting of drooping golden Chrysanthemums by Thai Artist Luo Suya, who specializes in Chinese brush painting.
