103 KITCHEN-A 062
If you are getting your home ready to sell, here are some tips for your kitchen, a very popular room for home buyers to preview:

Clean It
The kitchen needs to be uber clean from top to bottom.

Plant Shelves
If you have plant shelves, remove all greenery and accessories. These items are not necessary and will detract from the height of the ceiling. (They also collect dust.)

Wallpaper
If your kitchen has wallpaper and borders, remove them and paint the room an appealing neutral color.

Hardware
Cabinets
Old hardware should be replaced. If cabinets look old, you may want to consider painting or re-facing them.

Countertops
If your countertops have seen better days, consider updating them to maximize appeal.

Lighting
Lighting sets the mood for a kitchen. Be sure there is lots of natural light flowing into the room.

Small Appliances
Pack away all small appliances that you do not use daily.

Pantry
Organize the pantry and make it look spacious.

Kitchen
Magnets
Remove magnets and other materials from the refrigerator.

Napkin
Staging
If you kitchen looks too monochromatic, consider bringing in color with a few accessories such as a bowl of apples or lemons. A cookbook on a stand looks lovely especially when the page is turned to one with a beautiful photo. If you have an eat-in area, set the table with layered dishes, glassware and napkins.
