Whether you’re staging a home to sell or you’ve bought your dream home, you probably know how important kitchens are. And it makes perfect sense. After all, in homes across America, from Southwest Florida to Seattle, Washington, people spend a great deal of time in their kitchens. From cooking meals to entertaining guests, this room in your home likely gets a lot of traffic and attention.
And after decades as a Realtor and real estate investor, I’ve learned that a few well-chosen pieces can make all the difference for this room. But you don’t have to necessarily remodel your entire dining and cooking space to enhance it. In fact, I’ve found that there are plenty of pieces you can add to the room in an impressive way!
Let’s start somewhere so easy and affordable, just about anyone can manage it. And that’s with a multi-level fruit basket. By opting for one that can stand on your counter, you’re adding an enormous pop of color that brings a natural sense to your kitchen. Simple, affordable, and eye-catching.
Speaking of affordable, another way to add color and enhance your space is by swapping out your seating. Whether you have an eat-in bar or an attached dining area, these Ikea chairs can add a lot to your space. Because they’re elegant and trendy, they add a degree of sophistication without being over the top.
There’s a reason that people love to go to places like Starbucks; they’re inviting and friendly. And if you’re looking to spend a bit more money, this espresso machine in a bold red might be just your thing. It also doesn’t hurt that it makes a great cup, and you’ll be able to serve guests an upgraded coffee drink.
I always love to say that the details matter. And for this list of kitchen pieces, you can see how these details can completely change your experience when it comes to your kitchen. This is especially true when you highlight unique items that you love in this space. For this mug rack, you have the option to add a custom touch with special mugs you’ve collected.
Of course, with the Southwest Florida heat, there’s always a cold, refreshing drink close at hand. And with the popularity of craft cocktails right now, why not dress up your kitchen with a bar cart? They also make for an attractive decorative element, and it doesn’t get any more affordable than this piece for under $30.
You can see how enhancing your kitchen if it’s in fair condition, doesn’t have to involve a complete remodel. But I’d love to hear your ideas when it comes to making the most of this space in your home!
