How to Prepare Your Kitchen for Your Home’s Resale

The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a house– and one that influences potential buyers nearly the most out of any other.

  • Get hardwood floors if you plan on replacing your floors. They have great resale value, and are timeless.
  • Paint your cabinets. They’re usually the main focal part of a kitchen, so you want them to look good. Stick with timeless, neutral colors.
  • Replace your hardware and sink faucet. These seemingly small things can make a big impact on the overall look of the kitchen. Don’t forget your cabinet and drawer hardware, and your paper towel and towel rack.
  • If you plan on replacing your countertops, go with granite or sold-surface. Granite has become a go-to preference for homebuyers, and probably will remain that way for a long time. Quartz is another popular option, although it is slightly more expensive.
  • Replace your backsplash if it’s dated, or get one if you don’t have one. There are so many options available to choose from, they can be a focal point, and they give your kitchen a distinct and put-together look.
  • Paint the walls. Any room looks better with a fresh coat of paint, or even with patching up on spots that need it. Try and stick to light, classic colors.
  • Update the lighting, or add some in. Sometimes it may be easy to forget the fact that you have a dated light fixture. However, it’s something that is noticed by other people who aren’t in your house every day. Swap them out for a more modern look to tell potential buyers that your house is a part of the twenty-first century.
  • Stage it well. Make sure clutter is cleared, stains and spills are cleaned up, cabinets are organized, etc. Click the link here for more staging advice.
