Home Staging Transformations in Orlando: #1 The Kitchen

By
Home Stager with Gloria Home Staging, Inc.

This condo near Orlando had a kitchen suffering from chronic ordinariness, until Gloria Home Staging stepped in to help. There were other units in the complex for sale, and we knew that updating this kitchen would make the apartment really stand out.

There were two primary issues to deal with. One was the general clutter and disarray. The 1980’s euro-cabinets were the main problem, however, so that’s where we focused our efforts.

Kitchen before   Kitchen before

And here are the results: Since replacing the cabinets was not an option, we decided to paint them one of Benjamin Moore’s most current colors: a warm brown called Kona. We cleared off the counters and refrigerator, leaving only a handful of attractive accents. To add even more color to this very white space, we covered the bar stools’ seats with fabric that coordinated with the cabinets. And to call attention to the volume ceiling, one of the apartment’s best assets, we added a large wall clock.

Simple changes can make a dramatic difference! From the condo’s first four showings, the owners received two offers. That is certainly a staging success story!

Hi, Ginger - Thanks! The strip at the bottom is the formerly oak pull strip of the cabinets, now painted a lovely cream color whose name escapes me. Glad to help!

Thanks Laurie...I'm very familiar with those cabinets and I remember a time when I really, seriously considered them for one of my former homes.

Ginger - I guess many things that are in vogue look good to us at the time, and then we look back years later and ask, "What was I thinking?" Actually, I have cousins of these cabinets, minus the oak pull strips, in my own kitchen. At least I know I can paint them if I sell my house before I can replace them!

Thanks,  Debby! And you're welcome on the painting tips. Everything I know, I learned from the guys at Benjamin Moore! I'm glad to pass it on.
