    Hats off to hallways!

    by  • May 8, 2015 • 0 Comments


    How many homebuyers have you heard say, ‘As soon as I walked in, I instantly loved it’? That’s the power of the hallway. But what’s the secret of creating a good first impression? Here’s a few tips to point you in the right direction:

    • Choose the right staircase
