Kitchens can make or break a home’s value, so when you’re preparing to sell, it’s especially important to make your kitchen look as grand as possible. Here are our top tips:
1. Build Up
Don’t forget to look up! To maximize storage space and visual appeal, make sure your kitchen cabinets extend vertically as much as possible. Long lines modernize your space while adding valuable usable space.
2. Bling Out
Hardware is said to be the jewelry of the home, so don’t forget to add some spice with this finishing detail! This is a great way to add a pop of color, vintage appeal, or funky quirk to your kitchen. Show your personality!
3. Cue the Lights
Lighting can set the tone for the rest of the kitchen, so be careful not to forget this crucial element. Think in terms of one main fixture that draws attention, plus smaller lights that act as “supporting characters.”
4. Stay in Sink
More likely than not, your sink takes the hardest beating out of any other spot in the kitchen. Look for finishes that will wear well over time, and opt for high quality that is meant to last through years of wear and tear.
5. Splurge on the Splash
Kitchen backsplashes are the perfect place to splurge on higher-end materials: they cover a relatively small amount of space (requiring less materials), yet because of their positioning, they almost immediately catch the eye.
6. Floor Them
Floors are a large part of kitchens, so you’ll want to strategize a material that gives luxe vibes without overpowering. An open floorplan can also mean needing to make sure you stay coordinated with the rest of your home.
