I just wanted to share the simplest of home staging “rules.” Never line up the furniture around the perimeter of the room, pushed right up to the wall. It would seem that this would be the best way to maximize space, especially in smaller rooms, BUT it is not! Always leave a little room between the furniture and the wall. Just that little shadow of space allows the feeling of ample room and breathing space, instead of congested and backed against the wall. Following this same line of thought, even in a tight bedroom, there should always be room on both sides of the bed for that feeling of ease and peace.
