I work on many tiny Philadelphia homes - tiny living rooms, tiny kitchens and tiny, winding stairways. Some of these houses are so tiny that builders or owners have cut trap doors into the bedroom floors so the furniture can be heaved from the first floor to the second and from the second floor to the third.
Unfortunately, there have been no trap doors in the houses I have worked on. All the tiny houses I work on require tiny furniture and creative strategies to stage upper floor bedrooms.
In one itty-bitty house with only one bedroom, we couldn't get a full bed box spring up the steps, so I built a "box spring" out of banker boxes. (I heard of a stager who uses refrigerator boxes.) And, we had to make several attempts at winding the headboard around the stairway to finally get it up the steps.
So, this is where our staging creativity comes in. It's not just in the design work - sometimes, it takes down-home ingenuity and a good hard push!
