I love birds.
And I have written many times about birds on this blog.
I am mesmerized by how birds fly.
My fascination with flying started about 25 years ago. This fascination ‘took flight’ while living in our first home where the bedroom was at the top of a long flight of stairs. Not realizing at the time the importance of furniture placement, the head of the bed was placed next to the bedroom door which was just a few feet away from the top of the stairs.
It seemed that every night just as I was falling asleep I imagined myself floating out the bedroom door and flying down those stairs. I was lulled instantly asleep. Bliss.
But not everyone would find this flying exercise relaxing. And having the bed in this position in their bedroom could be subliminal hell.
Hence the importance of furniture placement.
Recently while visiting a client she complained that she was not sleeping well in her new home. The bedroom was situated at the front of the house. The bed was placed on the window wall with the street just a few feet away.
To me it felt like sleeping on the road!
We re-positioned the bed away from the windows (and the road),
The client announced she is now sleeping much better.
One of the main principles of staging a home for real estate sale is furniture placement. Too much furniture in a room and potential buyers feel crowded. Furniture placed incorrectly; potential buyers are tripping leaving a lasting impression of a small home.
I always tell my clients that furniture placement is key and location, location, location is the most determining factor in the price of a home!
