Fall in Love with Your Home: Kitchen
In February we are focusing on loving your home and what you can do to love the space you’ve invested in. Whether you’re there to stay or sprucing it up for sale, follow these tips to help you (or help a buyer) love your kitchen.
Open it up. This doesn’t necessarily mean a whole kitchen renovation. If you’ve got the time and means to blow out some walls and create a whole masterpiece from scratch, go nuts. But if you are looking for a quick way to make your kitchen seem larger, try removing some of the upper cabinet doors or invest in a pot/pan hanger. You can place your most appealing glassware (like that colorful Fiestaware you want to show off). This will create the illusion of more space and give you something beautiful to look at. Pro tip: Switch out what is displayed based on the season.
Refinish. While we’re talking about cabinets, how much do you actually like the color? Consider switching things up a bit and having your cabinets refinished. You can do this yourself (here is a great article and step-by-step how to) or have them done by a professional for $300-$3000 depending on the size of your kitchen. For a quick update, switch out the knobs for ones that feel and look great – to YOU.

Make it cozy. The kitchen is the main hub in most homes for families and guests. (That’s where the food is, it’s a no brainer!) So why not make it welcoming? Throw some comfy (but easy to clean!) rugs on the floor, add seating where you can, put up your favorite conversation starter art pieces. They’ll come for the food, but stay for the comfort. We promise.
