Selling a Washington DC House with a Small Kitchen

When selling a Washington DC house with a small kitchen, Realtors such as Michelle Buckman will tell sellers that they need to make the most of what they do have. With a little work and creativity, there are some ways to show off your compact kitchen.

De-Clutter the counter tops and the walls to open up the small space. Store paperwork, and clear off the photos and artwork on the refrigerator or wall. Put appliances in the cupboards or pack them away for your move. Clear wall space, and if you have open shelving units, minimize the items on them.

Bring in the light, and banish the dark. Small kitchens have a tendency to be dark, which makes them feel even smaller. Add light where possible: replace curtains with recessed blinds, and add workspace (under the cabinet) lighting.

Paint the walls a lighter and brighter color, and the ceiling a bright white. Going with lighter colors tends to open up a room. Light and bright colors are also very inviting and friendly, making them a perfect choice for the kitchen.

Add beauty and reduce the depth of counter-tops. Beautiful new counter tops can make a smaller kitchen feel luxurious. And by reducing the depth of these new counter tops by a few inches – say from 24 to 21 inches – you’ll add to your floor space.

For more information on making the most of your compact kitchen when selling a Washington DC house, please contact Michelle Buckman, Realtor.
