A must-see kitchen transformation. You won't believe it!

Home Stager with http://atlantahomestaging.net

Having staged homes throughout Atlanta for the past 8 years, there are times when I look back at the before pictures and think, oh my. This is one of those occasions. I was asked by Atlanta real estate agent, Kirsten Conover, to help make recommendations to best showcase this Roswell, GA home. 

Here's what the kitchen looked like before the renovations and before home staging:

Here's the after picture:

Here's what I had recommended:

  • Change the paint color on the walls
  • Change the paint color on the cabinets
  • Add new appliances (as these were extremely old)

As you can see in the after picture, the results are amazing! In addition, the agent called me last night saying that people are clamoring to see this listing. That's music to my ears.


Here are a few more after pictures (taken by Iran Watson):

Isn't it amazing what a staging consultation from an expert can do to improve the appeal of a home for sale?  The new paint color and the simple cabinet "update" made a world of difference!!  Great advice from Atlanta's top home stager, Kathy Nielsen :-)

Kathy - This really is an amazing transformation.  So nice to see all matching, stainless steel appliances!  Oh, and painting the cupboards created light and space.  Wonderful example of the power of home staging!

Gorgeous!  Everytime I see an After like this, it makes me want to paint my cabinets.  It's going to get done, it's just a matter of when I can psych myself up for the project.  This pushed me one step closer, LOL!

Great advice, Kathy and good for the sellers that they listened! It's amazing how coat of paint can change the look. I also like that the crown molding was added above the cabinets.

Hey Kathy,

I thought you might benefit from knowing about the Groove Digital suite of tools. It can replace pretty much EVERYTHING you use in an online business. With its "Freemium" model you can use everything for ZERO $$$.


Hope you enjoyed the video!

Now, it's time to experience the magic for yourself.
