If there is any room that is guaranteed to sell a house, it’s the kitchen. The heart of the home and the place we arguably start and finish every day in, a beautiful kitchen is THE most important room to focus on when staging your home ready for a potential sale.
- First up, get those Marigolds on because it’s time to GET CLEANING. A spotless kitchen is a sign to any potential buyer that you have a well-maintained home, so you want your kitchen to be sparkling. Not only will you need to scrub your hob, the fridge, and your surfaces, you’ll also need to make sure your cupboards are well organised and that you have DECLUTTERED your countertops to maximise the impression of copious storage.
- It’s also time to let go and DEPERSONALISE your kitchen. Take a deep breath and take down your kids' artwork and the fridge magnets you’ve accumulated over the years. You know what we mean – buyers need to imagine themselves in the space, and that means getting rid of a little bit of you (sob).
- If your kitchen is a little on the tired side but you understandably don’t want to replace it, try to STYLE IT UP a bit. Old units can be freshened up with new handles, put a fresh coat of paint on the walls, buy some fancy looking soap for next to the sink and ditch old tea towels for crisp new ones.
- You can even ADD POPS OF COLOUR with a simple bowl of polished green apples, a few herbs, or a cookbook open on a stand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
