DIY: Dining Room Staging & Styling To “Dine” For


Dining Rooms, in most homes, are the heartbeat of the home.  This is the place family comes together for special occasions, share conversation and enjoy each other’s company.  Unfortunately, this space gets overlooked when it comes to preparing your property for sale. Because this room mainly consists of a table and chairs, property owners assume there is nothing to do in this space.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Getting the scale and proportions right, will leave a lasting impression on your buyer.
