When you look at this picture this is probably nothing special. Nothing worth posting on social media, just something you might send to a friend to maybe get an opinion on what you should do with all that empty space. Well Real Estate Maximalist, Alan Corey, @RealEstateMaxi, went on to X (formally known as Twitter) to ask that question. Not to just a close friend, but for the internet. On January 16th 2024, He posted this picture with the caption being “One of my least-liked design elements of suburban design is this inaccessible landing I see in foyers. Any creative solutions for “staging” it out there? “ And of course he got some answers.
One commenter shared how they used their space.
Another shared how they had turn theirs into a kid area
And another had showed of their design skills where it doesn’t even look like a landing.
But then the internet got creative, and when one person makes a joke, everyone wants to put their own spin on it. Take a look.
Even some brands got in on the action. Chipotle saying “Please don’t lean over the glass”
The Cheesecake Factory said “How about a ‘lil cheesecake bakery case?”
Now did he get the answer he was looking for? I don’t know, maybe, but I do know that by creating this post he engaged in conversation and created interaction with his audience and expanded his following, and that’s why you should be posting too.
