Once you have cleaned and decluttered your home, your next objective will
be to make sure every room in your home has a distinct purpose. This is
one of the key components of
home staging and works to help buyers imagine themselves living in your home.
If you have a room that serves to only gather junk, convert it to serve
some other purpose that will add to the value of your home. Deciding what
that purpose is will depend on your specific area and market conditions.
For example, it may be more valuable in some areas for a house to have
an office than an extra bedroom, whereas a hobby room may be more attractive
to certain buyers. Whether you buy inexpensive furnishings, rent them,
or borrow some from friends, making a real room out of a junk room will
often have a huge payoff.
Unsure what purpose your room should serve? Possible ideas include:
- Add an armchair, pillows, and a lamp to create a reading nook
- Add a desk, computer, and bookshelves to create an office
- Add a sewing machine and art supplies to make a hobby/crafting room
- Drape fabric on the walls and lay inexpensive rubber padding to create
a yoga studio
Buyers are also often value-conscious and will likely see a spare or out-of-place
room as being unnecessary, therefore they should not be paying for it.
By changing a room’s purpose with a few quick additions or eliminating
junk, this negative can easily be converted to a positive.
