This family room, with the sofa placed on the open side of the room, was very functional for the home owners. And that was totally fine, since everybody is entitled to live in their own house as they like. However, when it comes to selling your house, things change. In this case, you could see the back of the sofa from the entrance (and I really mean: you open the door, and there it is). This obviously doesn’t give a good impression and this is also why we tactically decided to switch the sofa with the chair and place it in a way that you couldn’t see the back of the chair from the entrance.
Home staging tip: “Remember that the way you live in your own house is different from the way you live in your own house when it is up for sale“
