The kitchen area can greatly impact the resale value of your home, so it is vital to have it staged correctly. If you need help staging your kitchen contact our expert at Design2Sell. A properly staged kitchen will help a buyer see the value of the space. Use these tips to help you sell your home quickly and at the right price.

Give your kitchen the “wow” factor by using the following tips:

Clean. Clean. Clean.

Having a clean kitchen is a must. You want to make your kitchen clean and bright by paying extra attention to areas such as the sink, stove and counter tops. Be sure to polish the fixtures, scrub base boards, dust fans, and replace light bulbs. Be conscious of cooking odors that may linger around the kitchen. Also, never leave dishes in the sink or dishwasher.


By clearing this area, your design elements are sure to make a good impression. It’s a good idea to get rid of magnets, photos, and notes on the refrigerator. Put appliances under the sink and remove cleaning products from that area.

Let the light in.

Optimize available natural light by opening curtains. If there are dim areas of the kitchen, add some additional light sources. Try some recessed lighting to brighten these areas.

Add design touches.

When picking design elements for this area consider using plants, fruit, or flowers. Be sure to use new kitchen towels in your decorating. Select a piece of artwork that ties into the color pallet. Also, using a smaller table will make your kitchen appear larger.
