Kitchen Styling: 4 Simple Steps To Prepare For Sale
As they say… kitchen’s sell houses! As the heart of the home, and a space that brings family and friends together, it’s high on the list of any potential buyer so you need to ensure yours looks its absolute best before listing your home.
Here’s our tips that can be applied to any kitchen, whatever its shape or size.
Clear your benchtops
Before doing anything else, declutter. Remove everything from the benchtops. Put small and large appliances in cupboards or storage. A clutter free kitchen will look more spacious and also allow you to give it a good clean - which is also essential. Scrub every surface, including your oven and built in appliances. A clean kitchen will give the impression of a well-maintained home.
Make small repairs
Kitchen renovations can be expensive and take time, but some minor repairs will go a long way. Replace damaged hardware, fix leaking taps, if your cabinets are in bad condition or very dated, you may consider painting them. Likewise, a new benchtop can give your entire kitchen a new look. Don’t go overboard but make sure what you’ve got is in the best condition possible.
Organise your cupboards
You also need to give attention to what’s inside your cupboards and drawers. Remove everything and cull what you no longer use or need. Replace everything neatly. Organised cupboards give the impression of ample storage space.
With kitchen styling, less is more. Choose a few simple accessories such as a beautiful serving dish or tray, layered with utensils or napery. Play with different materials and textures to create different looks. We especially love adding greenery or a floral arrangement and if there’s wall space, an artwork in a kitchen is an unexpected and lovely point of interest.
