Good morning! Our tip today focuses on embracing the ever-growing popularity of the home office.
When Staging, it’s important to take into consideration one’s lifestyle. The ultimate goal is to sell the house, but remember practicality: when possible, try to Stage a home office or partial work space area.
According to a recent report from betanews, “45 percent of US employees work from home and 53 million people work as freelancers, contributing $715 billion (£464 billion) annually to the American economy.”
So, let’s give the people what they want! Stage a small desk, bookshelf, computer monitor and comfy chair. If there is a whole room available to Stage as a home office, work in a small couch, trendy rug, wooden table and globe or large clock. Use something that symbolizes “work” and invokes a studious mood. Be careful with color in this room though, as it may detract from your mission. Reserve color for the living areas of the house, where families and friends typically come together to enjoy social activities.
Do you have any preferences for Staging home offices? If so, we’d love to hear about it!
