The kitchen is the heart of many homes. It’s a place of comfort and creativity, where you can put on your chef hat, sing into your wooden spoon and indulge in everything from exotic spices to delicious chocolate.
The kitchen allows us to work as a team with our partners and children, to make a romantic meal for two or breakfast in bed. It’s where the best morning coffee is brewed and the finest beans on toast are produced. Yes, despite the washing up, this is by far one of the most treasured rooms and we feel it’s important to stage your kitchen with as much love as you would bake into a cake, which is why we have complied some of our favourite examples, from past properties sold, of fabulous kitchens for inspiration.
The Shaker-Style Kitchen
A timeless, country-chic take on the kitchen which blends well with many traditional homes, from Victorian tenement flats to Tudor style cottage. Paring classic colour combinations, such as cream and sage, will enhance the light and space and create a welcoming ambience. For a modern twist, opt for grey decor or bold patterned wallpaper.
The Gloss White Kitchen
Popular amongst many, the clean, gloss-white kitchen is not only practical but aesthetically pleasing. Team this with wooden flooring and finishes to add a touch of warmth. Inject colour with a stylish splashback or kitchen accessories, or simply add some fresh herbs and plants.
The Handmade Kitchen
We don’t expect you to splash out on a brand new kitchen when selling your home. However, it is worth noting that one-off pieces and impeccably fitted Kitchens and bathroom can make a world of difference when it comes to attracting viewers and, of course, to the final selling price. Invest in your home and it will return the favour.
