We’re always about inspiration, and this little kitchen project with a big impact is sure to inspire. This home staging project could also give you ideas for a redesign if you aren’t moving. The spoiler…the house sold for FULL LISTING PRICE the day before it was to formally go on the market! That’s a win for us as the stagers, and for the whole team who worked on it, including the contractors, the homeowner, and the agent.
Here’s the kitchen before:
And without further ado….
Same footprint. Same cabinets. New paint, New appliances. New flooring. And my favorite, “new” counters from EZ Faux Decor, which just took a few hours to DIY. Wait…what????
I’ve gushed over these great faux granite and marble and stainless films before. They are perfect for a high-impact, durable, semi-permanent project like this. Here’s a close-up of what the counters looked like before:
Older laminate is almost always damaged, but it can still be a strong base for a new look. Those are burn marks on the old laminate. The new faux marble film is peeking in from the left, before it was installed.
That shine gets me every time! See that bright spot right in the middle of the counter? That’s how shiny the film is. And it stays that way! This is the Turkish cream faux marble, chosen to compliment the existing back splash, which we did not change. It looks like this isn’t available any longer, but the Instant Riviera and other colors of faux granite are available here. And you can get them all with a 10% discount if you use the code HW10 at checkout.
There were a bunch of other high-impact, low-cost changes that went into making this average kitchen into a showplace that buyers were willing to pay top dollar for, but hopefully I’ve done my job today and inspired you to re-look at some space in your home. Do you have questions for me?
