Staged Makeovers: "We recommend that you paint your kitchen cabinets white to brighten them up and make them look new."
Homeowner: "Why would anyone want to paint that beautiful wood?"
Staged Makeovers: "Golden oak is outdated."
Homeowner: "But it is wood!"
Staged Makeovers: "When was this house built? Let me guess... 1989?"
Staged Makeovers: "Your home is competing with brand new homes. As a buyer, which would you choose? 80's outdated or bright and new?"
This is a typical conversation with a homeowner on the topic of painting outdated cabinets. It's not easy to talk them into what is best for their home to sell, especially in a market with a surplus of new builds. They bought the house when the style was in and are used to it. What they don't realize is that the home is no longer their own. It is now a product for sale and the product must compete with all the new products with their bright white kitchens.
