Interior Design Case Study: Midtown Office Lunchroom Revised

The client wanted to turn the unappealing office kitchen into an attractive lunchroom without spending a lot of money.

He asked around for a good home stager.  He reasoned that a home stager would know what to do inexpensively as compared to the horror stories he had heard about interior designers.

Little known fact: Good interior design services can accommodate any size budget.

With the right wall color, a shopping trip to IKEA, and great design logic,

the unattractive room was transformed into a lunchtime hot spot.

Testimonial: Our employee lunchroom was dirty looking, dysfunctional and depressing;

Cindy was spot-on turning the room into a functional livable space and the job was done on time and on budget. Everything came to about a fifth of what we would have spent using a decorator instead of a stager.  Cindy was extremely prompt and responsive; we look forward to having her re-decorate the rest of our office.
