How to create a breakfast nook in an 18" x 30" space...or take a look at my nook!

It was a little nook and I took it as a challenge to create "another room" where there was none before.

This was a tiny corner in the basement by the guest bedroom and in the hall way on the way to the loo.

In this property in Alliston, I Staged a tiny, perfect breakfast nook for the guest that is staying for an extended amount of time and wants to have their coffee in the morning away from the host.

Selling Real Estate is all about selling space and function. I created a space with a function where there was an empty corner previously.

Advantage Staging will market  your property to stand out from the competition every time.

Investment, minimal.

Impact, priceless.
