We all have been on listing where the homeowner proudly presents their kitchen with decals all over the refrigerator, cute little nick knacks all around, dishes in the sink, the stove not cleaned recently, and you can add the rest.
This is an excellent article to show your listing sellers what a difference they can make in the presentation of their kitchen.
Do you want to reduce the clutter in your kitchen?
The area over the cabinets is a great place to start.
It's common for people to decorate over their cabinets. All kinds of things are put up there....pottery, baskets, signs, plates, bowls, tea pots, all kinds of wildlife, and probably the most common.....fake plants.
Personally....I'm not a fan.
Adding fake plants and decorative pieces above the cabinets clutters a kitchen.
It's not decor to me..... it's dust-collecting, greasy, glorified clutter.
If your house is NOT on the market and you love stuff above the cabinets and it makes you smile, go for it!
If your house IS on the market, clearing away the clutter will improve the appearance of your kitchen and it's appeal to buyers. Potential buyers are easily distracted. Items on top of the cabinets in MLS pictures take the focus off more important features.
You don't want eyes wandering to the top of the picture, you want them focused on the center!
