Beast Begone!

I know I'm am going to take some heat for this post. People love their entertainment centers!  I was consulting with a home seller recently.  She was shocked when I suggested that her entertainment center be removed.  Traditional entertainment centers literally eat square footage.  We are selling square footage.  Rooms appear much larger with the 'Beast' G-O-N-E.  Entertainment centers are a relic from the bubble-back TV.  With flat screens, the Beast is unnecessary.

"What am I supposed to do with it?" the Seller snarled (really).

I told her, "If you want it in your next house, put it in storage.  Store it, sell it, or donate it but get it out of your house.  Storage is a better solution than having your small family room appear even smaller. Your entertainment center occupies most of the wall and sticks three feet out into the room."

"So what am I supposed to do with the TV?"

Check out these alternatives.

Let your room breathe!  Allow buyers to see your space.  Who knows, you might even like your room better without the Beast

Happy Friday, y'all!
