One thing that has changed is the Dining Room. Dining rooms used to be used strictly for a grand table and chairs, china cabinet, buffet, etc. Now, dining rooms are used for offices, music rooms, and small family rooms. Today's buyer 'gets it' that the space can be converted back to a dining room if they chose to use it for its designed purpose.
Our dining room is my husband's man cave. We have a small home. A dining room would not be used enough to warrant its own dedicated space. But, oh Lordy, how I covet dining rooms. I consult on houses and drool over people's good fortune to have a DR.
Isn't this a beauty?

Now, I digress.....
I consulted on a house and the dining room looks like this.
"Really?" says me.
OK, lovelies in what universe does this furniture configuration look right? I'm mortified that a stager (or anybody with an ounce of sense) would tell the seller this looks good! And, don't get me started on that red vinyl tablecloth....
I'm thinking about starting a series on Frequently Asked Questions about staging.
What do ya think?
