Make Space in the Bedroom for Another Activity
When potential buyers see a bedroom with just a bed and dresser, it gives the impression that there's not enough space to do anything else. Which is why Baer recommends putting a small club chair, or if the room's a little larger, a chair and side table, that gives the bedroom another function to make it seem more spacious. Just be sure to keep the chair to scale with the room—meaning that if your space is tight with low ceilings, you should probably go with a low-back armchair, not a leather club.
