A Few Kitchen Tweaks Increase New Smyrna Beach Home’s or Condo’s Salability

Easy Kitchen Facelift

Just as the kitchen is a magnet for family activity, when your New Smyrna Beach real estate goes up for sale, it’s the one room guaranteed to get rapt attention at every showing. Older New Smyrna Beach homes or condos can be at something of a disadvantage here, especially when structural design elements prohibit their being transformed into one of today’s popular airy open plan kitchens. Perhaps you’ve already taken a paintbrush to your cabinets to give them a new look, or discovered the transformative power of inexpensive subway tile on a dingy backsplash. If your kitchen is still looking a bit uninspired, enhance it before the home showings start with a final inexpensive tweak or two.

Trendy Storage Space

Where empty wall space is present, you may be able to create additional storage space. Open shelving is a trendy look that’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional.  Add  a trendy light fixture to not only brighten up the area but add a little flair. A blank wall can be transformed by installing rustic wooden or sleek metal shelving units…but with one proviso: open shelving does double duty as display space—and that’s no place for mismatched or over-the-hill china and glassware!  A little of the right kind of handiwork can go a long way toward adding some 21st Century features to an aging New Smyrna Beach home or condo. Where an outlet is handy, transform a cabinet shelf into a docking station for smartphones and tablets. A small wall-mounted flat screen monitor can bring TV (or web video) to liven up the area. Hooks mounted near a back door can be made available for hanging backpacks, grocery bags, keys, or leashes. A bottom kitchen drawer can be transformed into a rollout pet feeding station.

Family Time Around the Kitchen

No matter what else, it’s a plus whenever a kitchen space can clearly function as a gathering place as well as the meal preparation hub. It may be as simple as placing stools on one side of an island, adding a pub table and chairs, or transforming a neglected corner into a coffee station (those Keurigs make it a snap!)—giving your New Smyrna Beach home yet another spot for a family to congregate.
