Sex and the Kitchen. Interesting topic, right? Absolutely!
What do sex and the kitchen have in common? They both sell. There’s no argument that sex appeal is incredibly powerful. The kitchen plays a similar role when it comes to selling a home.
If you still doubt what I’m saying, ask anyone who walks into a house, and finds that while not all the spaces meets their needs, the kitchen is exceptional – crown molding, mullion glass doors, lots of counter space and cabinetry.
“I need a smaller kitchen” said no one ever.
Everyone has their reasons for upgrading or downsizing but one room that’s always at, or near, the top of everyone’s list is their kitchen.
If you had a list of renovations that needed to be done in order to sell your home, but had to pick your top three make sure the kitchen is on that list! If you are selling, your kitchen needs to be attractive to buyers.
You’ll be amazed at how large and open your kitchen will look after something as simple as de-cluttering and accessorizing. Relieve your counters of small appliances and add a little “pop” with a decorated fruit bowl.
A family spends about 80% of their waking hours together in the kitchen. Sounds like a lot right? Most don’t even realize the amount of time spent in the kitchen but this is why its appearance is paramount.
Just like it’s a known fact that guests in your house will open the medicine cabinet, chances are they’ll be inclined to open up a cabinet or two! De-cluttering doesn’t mean taking it off the counter and shoving it in the cabinet. Show off your organizational skills by keeping your spice jars neatly stacked and the drawers tidy.
Not all renovations come with a hefty price tag. Spruce up the cabinets without replacing them by refinishing them at a much lower cost. Replacing the knobs and handles and livening up the walls with a fresh coat of paint will add that finishing touch.
There are many cost effective ways to make the most important room in your home look its best without tightening the purse strings. You’ll be glad you did.
I dare you to bring sexy back in your kitchen and create irresistible appeal for potential buyers!
