Home Staging Tips for Your Kitchen

Image of a staged kitchenWhen it comes to home staging, it’s important to spend ample time on your kitchen. Staging your kitchen properly can make the difference between selling your home quickly (and for your asking price) or having it linger on the market. The fact is that all buyers want a home with an updated kitchen. Unfortunately, few sellers have the resources or time to do a full kitchen remodel prior to selling. That’s where home staging comes into play. With some creativity and elbow grease, even an older kitchen can look appealing.

Following are the key tips for staging your kitchen.

1. Clean everything … and we mean everything! Scrub the counters, cabinets, floors, baseboards, and walls. Polish chrome fixtures and hardware, dust ceiling fans, and replace burned-out light bulbs, even over the stove. Scrub or replace the stove drip pans. Clean inside the stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator. In other words, make the kitchen sparkle like it never has before. A thorough cleaning will make any kitchen more appealing to buyers.

2. Clear the countertops. When your countertops are cluttered, your kitchen looks smaller than it really is. Therefore, have no more than two countertop appliances out. Also remove canisters, dishracks, and other knick-knacks. If your kitchen is very small, consider removing all countertop appliances. If you’re still living in the home, this can make cooking inconvenient, but remember that it’s temporary.

3. Display only a few things that make sense. For example, display a vase of fresh cut flowers, a bowl of fresh fruit, or some potted herbs. These simple natural elements will give the kitchen a fresh feeling. They add color without clutter. They can also add a vibrant, clean smell to the environment.

Proper Home Staging Yields Big RewardsImage of a bowl of fruit
