Yes, believe it or not Staging does come into play for business and commercial properties as well.
It is most important in company lobbies or common spaces. No, it is not because they are selling, it is because they are ‘setting the stage’ for what the space says about them as a company.
Just like your home, a business needs to set a great first impression when their client walks through the door. It sets the tone of who they are and what they do.
I need to share one of the business projects I was hired to do that was so fun to be a part of.

Yes, I got to do the lobby of GE in Minneapolis! Their image is about technology. Current, cutting edge, looking to the future. Thus a contemporary look was needed.

If you are a business owner with a store front or office for client’s to visit, don’t forget your space reflects what you do!
