have a kitchen with a seating area.
However, don’t overdo this area by placing more chairs than necessary. You don’t want to overcrowd your kitchen; keep it simple and neat. Next, remove all the unnecessary items from your countertops, including knife holders, empty wine bottles, hanging towels, and extra appliances. A rule of thumb is to place no more than two appliances on the countertop at one time. Make room for others in the cabinets and properly store them. Once the space has been cleared of all the clutter, place a few decorative items to give it a nice look. Finally, wipe the tiles clean, make sure the lighting is adequate and all bulbs are working.
Then, apply a coat of paint.
THINGS TO ADD
Your kitchen might already have all the necessary decorative items; however, in home staging it’s important to buy a few extra things for an even fresher look. Some people find it useful to have a wall clock in the kitchen. Similarly, wall hangings and paintings that go well with everything else in the kitchen look appealing.
A few of the other items you can add include:
• Flowers: Fresh or even fake flowers or plants can lift a mood and make a room look more inviting. If you’re creative, you could come up with ideas to use flowers in your kitchen without having to spend a dime. In any event, simply use a vase or a glass bottle for fresh flowers to add color to your kitchen.
