We often come across ambiguous spaces, or rooms that are difficult to read.
In some cases we find it necessary/beneficial to give purpose, or show use of a space. Showing buyers how a home functions can engage them with the home.
Conversely, sometimes it is best to leave the use of a space up to the imagination of the buyer. If a room is given a specific use, buyers may not be able to see it as anything else, and as not suitable for their needs.
The decision as to which route to take is very case specific. Relying on the advice of your stager and your agent will ensure that your home is shown to its best potential.
