This is from the same condo as the kitchen in the last post. White walls, dark oak trim and tired carpeting did not make this condo stand out above any of the others in the building. We closed off the opening to the kitchen, added booth seating since this condo lacked storage, painted everything, added new flooring, lighting and beautiful furniture.
And a few more after pictures of the rest of the condo, just for fun!
We try to keep most of our staging tips pretty inexpensive, but sometimes selling a house for the price you want requires some bigger renovations. This house sat on the market a long time because the kitchen was really in shambles. The cabinets were minimal, non-matching and the doors didn’t even shut right. There wasn’t a dishwasher or microwave and all of the finishes were dated.
We helped the homeowner turn this kitchen into a modern space with all new functional cabinetry, contemporary granite countertops with a glass tile backsplash, new flooring and all new stainless appliances.
This is the kitchen from the house we featured last month. New wood floors made the most significant impact. We also painted the cabinets, added granite countertops and painted the walls a much warmer color.
Laminate kitchen cabinets with wood trim can feel very dated. You don’t need to replace all the cabinets to have a nice looking kitchen. Simply painting the wood portions of the cabinets and adding pulls can have a great impact!
We just finished this complete kitchen makeover with a warm wall color, wood floors instead of carpet, granite countertops that extend over a new breakfast bar, and a gorgeous tile backsplash. See our December blog for more before and after shots of the entire home.
When a room has white trim, walls, ceiling and floors, there is nothing to define the different surfaces and create visual interest. In this living room, we wanted the white trim and crown moulding to stand out, so we added dark wood floors and a rich wall color. Draperies and furniture create an inviting atmosphere.
