You want your house to look its best while it is on the market. Refreshing and redecorating certain rooms are proven to help make buyers more interested. Two rooms of the house that tends to get the most attention from potential buyers are the kitchen and the bathrooms. Giving your kitchen a makeover may just add the extra boost the house needs in order to attract a quick buyer.
It is a good thing to keep in mind that first impressions are very important. When a buyer walks into your kitchen for the first time you will want it to look as clean as possible. If the paint has smudges or scratches it would be a good idea to repaint. Painting can be done inexpensively but can make all the difference in the appearance of the room.
Keeping the room as light as possible is also important because it tends to make the room look larger. Purchasing white or light cream colored curtains for the windows can make a dramatic difference and are normally quite inexpensive.
If the kitchen appliances are being included in the sale of the home it is best to remove any scratches from the surfaces if possible. Appliance paint will cover many scratches and discolorations that might be on the refrigerator or stove.
The kitchen flooring is also an important factor on how the kitchen is viewed. Depending on what type of flooring the home has it is often a good idea to refresh it. If it is tile and you have any leftover pieces from when the original floor was installed, it might be a good idea to remove any chipped or damaged tiles and replace them before the house is put on the market. If wood flooring is in the kitchen and has dulled over time you can make it look nearly new by buffing and polishing it.
