Discovering Lost Spaces

A big part of what stagers do is create fantasy spaces: An exercise room, a meditation space, an art studio, a family game room,” says Linda Russell, owner of the home staging firm House Dressing in Montclair, N.J. “We take that unused space on the third floor or in the basement and turn it into something you’ve always dreamed about having.”

So if you have a room that currently serves only to gather junk, re-purpose it into something that will add to the value–and your enjoyment–of your home. Move those boxes to a rented storage space (or better yet, have a yard sale or donate their contents to charity) and get to work creating the space you yearn for. The simple addition of a comfortable armchair, a small table, and a lamp in a stairwell nook will transform it into a cozy reading spot, Russell says. Or drape fabric on the walls of your basement, lay inexpensive rubber padding or a carpet remnant on the floor, and toss in a few cushy pillows. Voila! Your new meditation room or yoga studio.
