Seeing really is believing! Sellers of mine want to paint their kitchen cabinets in order to update them (old, dark 70's wood) but not sure what color to use. Their appliances, flooring and countertops are all various shades of white and off-white, so painting the cabinets white or off-white would likely look like they were trying to match one of the existing colors but weren't able to get it right. Can you imagine an entire kitchen of different whites? Blahsville!
My suggested solution? Consider another neutral color - sage green. My sellers were still not convinced, so I went to my fabulous friend on the ‘Rain for help. Michelle Molinari of Featurethisdotdotdot . Michelle has so many wonderfully inspired solutions when it comes to Staging that I always think of her first when I have a dilemma.
Michelle offers "virtual staging" which allows sellers to "see" the changes in a mock-up. So many people are not able to visualize major changes and analyzing a mock-up can really help a seller make informed decisions about what to change and what colors or materials to use. Here is the example that she created for my clients:
Michelle offers this service at a discount to other Home Stagers. This is not something that I have the ability to do (technically speaking) and I am happy to hire Michelle whenever something like this comes up. Thanks, Michelle!
