Six Super Staging Tips for Kitchens

The Kitchen is the heart of the home. This much utilized space is where families devour weeknight dinners, bake scrumptious, sweet treats, and complete homework assignments. If you’re desperate to sell your home, possessing a beautiful, pristine kitchen can drastically help you accomplish this task. To wow potential home buyers, consider adhering to the following super staging tips for your kitchen.

Hire a Cleaning Professional

Are your stainless steel appliances covered with smudges? Perhaps, your kitchen cupboards are dusty. A dirty, smelly, and unorganized kitchen will cause potential home buyers to run in the other direction. To get your kitchen in tip-top shape, consider hiring a professional cleaner. This individual will likely have access to cleaning products and tools you don’t own. Even better, you won’t have to expend all of your energy scrubbing countertops and floors.

Paint Walls

When staging your kitchen, adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls is a wonderful idea. If your kitchen is small, choose a light hue. Selecting a subtle color will likely make your space look larger than it really is. You should also pick a shade that will perfectly match your countertops and cabinets.

Remove Pot Racks

Have you hung up pot racks in your kitchen? Before potential homebuyers tour your space, think about removing them. If house hunters see pot racks, they might assume your kitchen is devoid of adequate storage space.

Declutter Your Countertops

Are your kitchen countertops filled with small appliances such as coffee makers, indoor grills, toaster ovens, can openers, waffle makers, or sandwich makers? Perhaps, five different brands of cereal line your countertops. If selling your home is a priority, declutter your kitchen countertops before potential homebuyers view your place. Removing food items and small appliances will make your kitchen look more organized and larger.

Small Home? Make It Clutter Free with These Smart, Storage Tricks

About a year ago, you purchased an adorable abode in a sought-after neighborhood. Quickly, you realized your new place was smaller than you first imagined it to be. Because you’re a neat freak, you experience anxiety every time you open the front door of your house. Your child’s toys are permanently affixed to the living room floor. Snacks line your kitchen countertops. If you can relate to this scenario, consider making your small home clutter free with the following smart, storage tricks.

Install a Trap Door

One fun way to free your home of clutter is to install a trap door in your flooring. You might be amazed at how much stuff you can store in the space underneath your floor boards. You can utilize this area to house books, old compact discs, and holiday decorations. You might even wish to hide expensive jewelry in this unique storage space.

Take Advantage of the Space under Your Stairs

Are you using the space under your staircase? This often forgotten space is an ingenious place to put a small, home office or a reading nook. You might even wish to transform this space into a hidden closet to put your shoes, jackets, and scarves in.

Attach Shelves to the Back of Your Cabinets

If you live in a small home, your cabinets might be bursting at the seams. Enhance the storage possibilities of your cabinets by attaching shelves to the back of them. For instance, you may enjoy storing household cleaners in this type of shelf in your kitchen. Or, you might adore putting your hair products in a similar shelf in your bathroom.

Invest in Multipurpose Furniture

When shopping for furniture, look for multipurpose items. For instance, some coffee tables include hidden compartments. When guests visit your home, you can hurriedly throw your remote controls, magazines, and other items into your coffee table’s hidden storage unit. You can also purchase beds with built-in drawers.
