What started out as a colorful office is now an inviting value-added bedroom. By seeing the home as a two-bedroom, instead of a one bedroom and an office, potential buyers will perceive more space and function in the home. Not much work is needed to make change –– the desk is swapped out for a bed, new window treatments are hung and the décor is toned down.
