We have all watched episodes of HGTV where we see smaller kitchens. We have seen small kitchens that don’t look small because of a few small changes. As the owner of Raleigh Cary Realty in Cary, I know that kitchens sell homes.
But, what are homeowners supposed to do if they have a smaller kitchen? How will anyone every look at a small kitchen and picture themselves in the home?
4 steps to take to make a small kitchen in a Cary home feel larger are:
- Remove the Clutter: If there are extra items in the kitchen that aren’t used, pack them up or sell them.
- Pick the Right Appliances: The amount of available counter top space makes a kitchen feel large or small. For example, counters covered in appliances feel incredibly small. Choose compact appliances to leave on the counter and remove larger items like the large Keurig.
- Add Some Color: Take some design tips and add a colorful back splash or small decorative items such as flowers. The color can add dimension to the kitchen that may make it seem larger.
These are just a few tips and a realtor can really help a Cary homeowner make these decisions before listing their home. Our team at Raleigh Cary Realty is ready to help optimize the space for potential buyers or help find a buyer who may not be interested in the size of the kitchen.
