White Kitchens

I've been advising a client of mine who is renovating a home for sale, coming soon in Sarasota, about keeping everything white.

The home is small, and using white will create the illusion of a larger, airy space that a potential buyer can imagine with their furnishings, art, and accessories.

Here's a great example of how a small kitchen using simple materials looks spacious and contemporary:


Subway tiles are a timeless classic.  The lack of cabinet pulls creates a streamlined effect that would work well on simple and inexpensive stock cabinets from places such as Ikea or Home Depot.  There are no jarring colors to distract the eye, which makes the space look larger.

The goal in a successful "flip" is the balance between spending frugally on the renovation, while appealing to as many potential buyers as possible.  The simple lines and materials in the above example would appeal to any buyer who prefers a beachy aesthetic, or a rustic look by adding more personal items to the space, or a buyer who likes a minimalist contemporary feel.

If you are thinking of selling your Venice, FL investment property, please contact me for a design and marketing consultation to maximize your sales price in the current seller's market.
