Saying Bye to a Bachelor Pad

An office gets transformed into second bedroom to appeal to more buyers.

After: Welcoming Hideaway

The master bedroom started out as a blank slate. Now, it has been transformed into an intriguing, welcoming hideaway. Reorienting the bed to sit in the underneath the window opens up the space and gives the room a focal point. Warm, subtle colors, elegant window treatments and new lighting inside the cornice makes a wonderful little haven that homebuyers are sure to remember.

Before, the master bathroom (not shown) was outdated and bland. Now, it’s a natural extension of the chic master bedroom. Large 16" x 16" floor tile laid on an angle make helps make the space seem bigger. A new vanity, countertop, sink and shelving provide even more style and function.

Tip: Consider a presale inspection of your home before you put it on the market. This way you can identify any potential problems that could cost you big money at the closing table.
