Deborah an interior designer who is in the process of adding home staging to her services (an excellent strategy to recession proof an interior design business) writes:
I am about to embark on a home staging project that requires rental furniture. If it turns out that buying furniture would be more cost-effective, would you recommend that?
There would be the selling aspect at the end which could be a challenge, but overall I think the client would save money over a 12-month period with purchased rather than rental. What is your advice?
Home stagers, I’d love to hear your advice and points of view on this home staging business dilemma. Please add your thoughts and I’ll summarize the best and add my ideas in a future post.
