Monochromes are out; dual tones are in. You can paint your kitchen cabinets in two different shades of the same color, or any combination of two colors that blend perfectly well. Paint the cabinet door in pale blue and the outer walls of the cabinet in a deeper shade of blue. For the overhead cupboards, you can paint these in a lighter or paler shade of any color that you choose, and then paint the counters in a deeper/darker shade. This gives the illusion of a wider space, says Gene Bernshtam.
Break down the walls
More homebuyers are opting for the wide, open space look; and often, they prefer the kitchen area flowing seamlessly into the living or dining room. According to Gene Bernshtam, homes with this type of layout sell faster too.
As more and more people are becoming health conscious, and being more careful about what they eat, they make use of their kitchens more frequently now. A walk-in pantry is becoming the norm these days in kitchen designs as home buyers want to have more storage space in the kitchen.
A good dining table setup is also essential. Home buyers look to the dining area as their intimate venue for at-home family bonding, so Gene Bernshtam advises to pay attention to your table and chair set up as well.
