Right now, sellers have the upper hand in the housing market. With this in mind, sellers are looking for opportunities to increase their home’s value. What better way to do that than by turning attention to the kitchen? According to Professional Home Stager Melinda Potcher, there are several quick fixes you can do in your kitchen to help sell the home without committing to a large (and expensive) remodel of the entire kitchen space. Melinda notes:

“…an easy and worthwhile tip to updating your kitchen – deep clean all you surfaces – this means your cabinet doors and inside shelving, the baseboards and trim molding between your cabinets and your flooring, the appliances, the floors, (grout lines if you have kitchen tile) the sinks, the caulk lines between the counters and back splash (if you have them), under the kitchen sink, behind the refrigerator, under any overhands of the counters, and even the globes and pendants of any light fixtures.”

While cleanliness certainly goes a long way, so do other quick fixes for a kitchen such as:

  • Switching out old cabinet hardware with new pieces
  • Ensuring the right light bulbs are used in order to cast the most appealing light
  • Updating the back splash
  • Installing new flooring
