If you’re like many of the new and aspiring home stagers I’ve met over the years, there’s a good chance you worry that you won’t know what to recommend to your clients at your home staging consultations.
The thing is, if you have a natural talent for decorating, you have nothing to worry about because when you get into a house and start looking around, your fears will subside and you’ll instinctively know what to do to improve the way the house looks.
To prove to yourself that you already have all the decorating talent you need to be a home stager, I’d like you to take a good look at this picture of an ugly bathroom and think about what you would recommend for a space like this. Then add your best staging advice in a comment on this post.
I’ll share my own staging ideas for this bathroom in a post next week but in the meantime please share your own home staging recommendations by leaving a comment!
