Simple Tips for Achieving a Bigger-Looking Kitchen

 Probably because any “achievement” is something that’s honored and rewarded from kindergarten on, the word automatically triggers a positive reaction.

So for Lafayette readers who happened upon last week’s Realty Times article about how to “achieve a bigger kitchen” without busting the family budget, the piece would have been worth a look. And in fact, author Brad Miller actually did offer up some creative approaches. Here are some wallet-friendly ideas for Lafayette sellers looking to increase the value of their kitchen:

·         Go for a slimmer fridge (the tall, thin 28-inchers hold a lot of food).

·         Ditch double sinks (a single large one takes up less space; actually makes washing large pans easier; allows more counter space).

·         Use a compact dishwasher (appropriate for condos—but we might question this one for the average Lafayette family).

·         Remove some hardware (press-activated cabinet doors and drawers provide a less cluttered, expansive appearance).

·         Light the cabinets (eliminating shadows makes a kitchen “feel roomier”) There are a wide range of possibilities (glass-doored cabinets can even be handsomely lit from the inside).

The Realty Times layout included photos illustrating the bigger-looking kitchen ideas in action—and they really did look convincing.

If you are planning to sell your own Lafayette home, identifying the least costly approaches for making needed improvements is a fine place to start. I can help there—as with all the other facets that go into a successful sale. I hope you’ll give me a call!
