Once you get out there and start doing home staging consultations, you’ll find all kinds of things that might surprise you.
Home stagers see it all, from taxidermy collections to a 10-square-foot lizard terrarium between the kitchen and dining room (I didn’t find that as appetizing as the owners, apparently).
But more often, you’ll just find plain old ugly rooms crying out for your creative magic.
One of my staging consultation clients converted the attic of their home into a living space for their teen. The fact that it has a 2-piece bathroom (seen in the photo at right) is a great selling feature, however, in its current state it is just plain scary.
