When you’re selling your home, your Jasper Indiana Realtor® will most likely tell you that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms. What that means is that prospective buyers will look at the kitchen first when they come see your home – and an old outdated kitchen will devalue your home and set you up for a lower offer. If the kitchen doesn’t create a good impression, your potential buyers might consider a different home with more a updated kitchen.

So how can you make your homes’ kitchen as appealing as possible when you’re selling your home in Jasper? These 5 kitchen staging tips will put get your home looking great and ready to sell.

5 Kitchen Staging Tips To Make your Home Look Great

Making sure your kitchen looks great can make a huge impression on the offers you get for your home –and even increase the offers buyers submit. Use these 5 kitchen tips to make your kitchen look great for your showings.

#1. Paint the cabinets and replace with updated hardware.

You can easily upgrade your kitchen with a little paint and some new hardware. Your Realtor can give you advice on whether painting or re-staining would be best… but if you already know they need a facelift, then its best to give them a new look. Chalkpaint is an easy way to update the look of your cabinets without a lot of prep work. Simply clean the cabinets with a degreaser and paint 2 coats of Chalkpaint on them and then spray with a can of clear top coat. Then go to your local hardware or home improvement store and find some new matching hardware and install it. Your kitchen will look amazing with a new updated color that you can do yourself in a weekend!

#2. Clean, declutter and simplify.

Prospective buyers like a clean kitchen, so make it look that way. Clear off countertops, put large items away and keep anything that is out to the bare minimum. Make sure it is as clean as possible, all cabinets are wiped down, the area by the garbage is clean, and remove all personal signs & clutter on the counters or in the drawers (people will open them). Make sure your sink is clean including the faucet and around the sink, wipe down the backslashes and counter edges and scrub the stovetop. Clean out the microwave and wipe down the refrigerator and remove all magnets and decorations. Leave only a few decorative pieces on the counters like a fruit basket or vase with flowers. Pro tip: Hire a professional housecleaner to deep clean your home before you put your house on the market.

#3. Declutter & organize the cupboards.

Buyers are very likely to open your cabinets and pantry so you want them to look organized and roomy. Remove any extra item that you can put in storage and stack the remaining items neatly. Take out and pack up anything you haven’t used for 6 months or more so that there is plenty of space of them to imagine their own items in that space.

#4. Hang up new clean towels.

Put a fresh new towel near the sink or hanging on your stove. This is a nice way to add color and style to your kitchen and give it a pop of color. Never use old or used towels. Keep one hand towel separate that you use only for showings, and put it away as soon as you return to the house.

#5. Place some flowers or plants on the counter.

A big vase of fresh-cut flowers is a great touch, and can make your kitchen smell good too! Try different potted plants or flowers to see what looks best for your space.

The bottom line is if your kitchen looks great then your home is more likely to sell for your asking price or above! A few small changes can go a long way!
