There are certain rooms in a home that rank most important to buyers and will often “make or break” their interest in placing an offer. These rooms include the kitchen, living area, and master bedroom. That means they should be three rooms you really focus on staging for sale and make as attractive as possible.

Megan Morris has kicked off a series of posts about these “make or break” areas with a room that is always at the top of a buyer’s list: the kitchen. Most kitchens won’t need a complete overhaul to get it sold. (Talk to your real estate agent about this to better assess how much work you may want to put into an outdated kitchen before putting it on the market.) With a little bit of staging and redesign, you can turn a drab kitchen into one ready to be sold. Megan has included a before & after of a kitchen she recently staged to illustrate the tips.
