6 Tips for Successfully Staging Your Kitchen

A well-staged home can make the difference between a quick sale and a lingering listing, and your kitchen is one of the most important rooms in your home.

Staging your kitchen before putting your house on the market can make the difference between a quick sale and a lingering listing. 

The appearance of your kitchen is one factor that will rank highly among potential buyers’ priority lists. Because of this, I want to bring you six kitchen staging tips that can help you sell your home.

The appearance of your kitchen ranks highly among potential buyers’ priority lists.

  1. De-clutter the countertops. Rid your counters of any miscellaneous objects, paper, or clutter. This can be distracting. Instead, leave one or two decorative items on your counters. A good example would be a vase of flowers or a bowl of seasonal fruit.
  2. Get rid of excessive dishware. As is the case with our first tip, you don’t want buyers to feel overwhelmed. Leave one matching set of dishes and glassware out on your table, but don’t overdo it.
  3. Check the cabinets. Your cabinets may need a fresh coat of paint or to be replaced altogether. Determine your specific needs and update accordingly.
  4. Evaluate your appliances. If your appliances are new and in good working order, you should be all set. However, consider upgrading or replacing appliances that aren’t quite up to snuff.
  5. Clean the refrigerator. No one likes a dirty kitchen. Make sure you wipe down the front and handles of your refrigerator.
  6. Clean the walls. Like we mentioned in the previous tip, it’s important to make sure your kitchen is sparkling clean. Keeping your walls and backsplashes looking fresh and free of stains or smudging will make a big difference.

With these tips at your disposal, it should be easy to stage your home.

If you have any other questions, would like more information, or are considering a career in real estate, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

The Red Relief program by Keller Williams is dedicated to providing disaster relief to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Find out how you can help today.

Keller Williams is here to help those impacted by Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.

When it comes to Keller Williams, family is everything.

Our Red Relief program is dedicated to providing disaster relief to every family impacted by these storms.

Hundreds of Keller Williams agents have gone to Texas to help those in Corpus Christi, Houston, Beaumont, and more. More agents are on their way to help families in the path of Hurricane Irma in Florida.

"Help us provide disaster relief to those impacted by Irma and Harvey."

So far, we have seen a tremendous outpouring of love from our volunteers and donors. Rebuilding these areas is going to take more than a couple of weeks, so it’s important that we keep the energy going in the coming months as we help people get back to their normal lives.

As we work to rebuild these areas, we could use your help.

Please consider donating to our Red Relief program. Your contributions will help us supply food, water, clothing, and building supplies to these communities.

If you have any questions about KW Cares, the Red Relief program, and our ongoing disaster relief efforts, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We appreciate your support as we work to help others through this difficult time.
