Are you in the process of getting your home ready for the property market? If the answer is yes, then the one room you need to tackle is the kitchen. Most of us spend more time in our kitchen than the living room, so it’s important to get it right so as to tempt that buyer. Below we share some helpful tips on how to showcase your kitchen to sway that buyer.


Choose the right flooring


A good stone flooring will instantly catch the buyer’s eye. If you are short of space then opt for light colours to make the kitchen appear bigger. If you can’t stretch to new stone flooring, opt for clay tiles or good quality vinyl tiles. It really will make all the difference.


Change those light fittings


One quick and easy way to update your kitchen is by replacing light builds and light fittings with those that are bang on trend. Look online and see what is the current fashion. Potential buyers want a new and fresh look, and light fittings will help to achieve this look.


The kitchen as an entertaining space


One great way to create an entertaining space is by adding an island to your kitchen, as it can be used for food prep and eating. If an island isn’t an option, then create space for a small table and chairs. Being able to eat in the kitchen is a huge advantage.


Appliances sell your kitchen


A well-equipped kitchen will help you to sell your home quickly. Potential buyers will look for matching appliances that have been well maintained. Get the cleaners in to clean the oven and fridge, and be sure to make those appliances sparkle and shine.


Other useful kitchen tips


Plants, rugs and artwork can all help to create depth in your kitchen. Keep those windows open and don’t block the view. Place bowls of fruit on the kitchen table and arrange those cookbooks to create a family-friendly feeling. The old trick of baking bread and brewing coffee will also help to sway those potential buyers.
