How To Prepare Your Kitchen When Selling

Whether you’re brushing up on your culinary skills, working from home, or enjoying meals with loved ones, you likely spend a lot of time in your kitchen. Which is why it comes as no surprise that a gorgeous kitchen can be one of the things that buyers value when looking for a home. If you’re planning on selling your home, preparing your kitchen to look its best is essential to leverage the value of your home and get it sold fast.


1.    Hire Cleaners To Clean Your Kitchen

You could always clean your kitchen yourself but having professionals come in will ensure that every nook and cranny is cleared out and your left with a sparkling kitchen.


2.    Apply Fresh Paint & Update Cabinet Hardware

Another essential to prepping your kitchen is by applying a fresh coat of paint on your walls or cabinets.  A new paint colour will refresh the look of your kitchen. New cabinet hardware will also update your kitchens look and is a small investment that will go a long way.


3.    Clear Out Your Counters

Store all kitchen appliances on the counter out of sight. By clearing out your counters, your kitchen will look more spacious, inviting, and appealing to potential buyers.


4.    Organize Your Cupboards & Pantry

If there’s one thing that we can guarantee, your potential buyers will be looking through your cupboards and pantry. Just like your counters, remember to put any extra cups, utensils, cutlery, or food out of sight and store them away. Overfilled cabinets isn’t ideal and gives the impression that your kitchen lacks storage space.


5.    Check The Plumbing

Make sure to deep clean your kitchen sink and make sure to fix any leaks! Although it may be a minor detail, a sparkling faucet will impress.


6.    Accessorize

Last but not least, accessorize. Artisanal food items such as luxury olive oil or a stack of cook books give an artisanal feeling to any kitchen.

Fresh flowers or a colourful bowl of fruit adds a touch of brightness to your kitchen.


The kitchen is for sure one of the most important rooms in a home. When selling your home, a beautifully staged and well-prepared kitchen can help you enhance the value of your property. By following the quick tips mentioned above, you can ensure that your kitchen appeals to a wide range of potential buyers. From hiring professional cleaners to decluttering will help you showcase your kitchen in the best light possible.
