How to Stage a Home Office (good Feng Shui, too)
Moving Mountains Design recently staged a home that had a dedicated home office. Here is the "before" picture.
As you can see, there are piles of papers yelling "Pay attention to me" and "Look at all the work you have to do before you can relax". Not the message you want potential buyers to get when touring your home. Yes, the homeowners could have just cleaned the papers off the desk and the place would have looked a whole lot better. Better, but it would be even better if the office actually looked like someplace a buyer might like to hang out. Look what happens when we removed the HUGE desk and put in a desk (still large at 6' long) more in scale with the room.
The room now looks large enough to accomodate almost any home business venture. And it looks like a pleasant place to work. Take note that the desk is in the power position (very good Feng Shui) which helps when dealing with difficult clients and invites success.
Home staging isn't just about clearing clutter, removing personal photos or choosing neutral paint colors. As a professional home stager I help my clients by selecting appropriately sized furniture and arranging it to maximize the appeal, available space and functionality of any room.
