This song title by The Clash released in 1982 is perfect for these homeowners. They are considering down-sizing, but wondered if perhaps by changing a few things, they might like their home better.
Premiere Home Stagers made notes of what they liked and disliked about each room. For example, they liked the open floor plan, but would like more natural light. They also wondered if their house was too big for them.
We placed the rug that they had in their living room underneath the table in their dining room. Now the paint colors make sense. We suggested curtain panels would make the off-set window less conspicuous.
We placed the larger sofa on an angle and moved the TV into the corner so it would not be the focal point of the room. It is more interesting and gives the feeling of more light when facing the windows.
We came up with a few more ideas on how to make their home more livable. However, only the homeowners can decide what choice is best for them. Premiere Home Stagers can help you with your decision-making also. 608-345-9396
