Consider Giving your Kitchen Cabinets a Facelift
Getting your home ready to sell can be a stressful experience filled with lots of quick decisions and unexpected expenses. When the subject of staging comes up, it’s easy to consider crossing that one off your to-do list—but don’t. Time and time again, I’ve seen a house sitting on the market for months, then watched it sell within weeks of being staged effectively.
As common sense (and any real estate agent) will tell you, people are very particular about their kitchens.
So where staging is concerned, this should be a key area of focus. Here are 10 ways to make over your kitchen in time to make the sale—and stay under budget.
1. Kitchen Cabinet Facelift
I meet so few people who even consider this solution that it feels like a designer secret. Think about it: dated cabinets can really make or break a sale, but sellers often don’t have the time or capital to completely replace their cabinets. Refacing your kitchen cabinets can usually be done inside of a week for less than half the cost of replacing them.
When it comes to refacing for a sale, keep it simple. White is often your best bet if it works with the rest of the space, as lighter colors tend to recede and make the space look and feel more open. If white doesn’t work, focus on simple facing such as shaker style doors and sleek hardware.
