How to Stage a Child’s Room

Stage a Child's RoomWhen selling your house, you know home staging is important; but is it necessary to stage a child’s room? The answer is yes! Of course, as any parent knows, keeping a child’s room in pristine and showable condition is a challenge. Between toys, sometimes erratic sleep schedules, and bursts of playful creativity, chaos in a child’s room is common. This is why staging your child’s room is so important.

Since few children like to see their personal space disrupted, here are some suggestions to stage a child’s room that keep both the child and the potential buyers in mind.

1. Declutter wisely. When you declutter your child’s room, you don’t have to pack up or get rid of everything. Having some toys on display is fine. But look for toys your child no longer plays with, or toys that can easily fit tucked away in a decorative bin or storage box. Get as much out of eyesight as possible, while still showing your child that their toys are safe and there for playtime.

2. Remove your child’s name from décor. It’s common for children’s rooms to brightly display the name of the child who lives there. For security and privacy reasons, take that décor down. Additionally, it’s hard for prospective buyers to envision their own child occupying that room when another child’s name is prominently on the wall.

3. Paint the walls a neutral color. If your child’s room has a distinctive and loud color, like Barney Purple, paint it to a neutral tone. The same applies if the room has a fun, imaginative mural on one wall. Unless your prospective buyer has a child the same age who happens to love that same mural theme, the only thing they’ll see when they look at that cute mural is the cost of removing it. Take care of that objection before it arises.

But the room should look appropriate for any age child to live there immediately. Save those decorative items for your next home.

It is possible to stage a child’s room with minimal tantrums and stress. When you do, you’ll attract more buyers and get the highest offer possible for your home.
