Here is a new spin on dealing with a design dilemma – I want to know what you think and what you would do in this situation. I have a client that has given me “creative freedom” in giving a kitchen condo a facelift that’s listed for sale. First, let me give you some background.
- I’m going to be repainting the kitchen cabinets in this kitchen.
- It’s a small, galley style kitchen in a 2-bedroom/2-bath condo.
- I will be replacing the cabinet hardware and hinges.
- The floors will stay the same (but I have suggested adding a runner).
- While I would love to add a backsplash, the condo is already priced aggressively, and that’s out of my scope of work.
- And yes, I did suggest replacing the cabinets altogether.
Now that you know the background, let’s take a look at the kitchen:
Pretty cold and blah right now. The rest of the condo shows much better – the carpet looks new, very neutral wall colors and décor. The cabinets have been painted once already, and whoever painted them, chose to paint the frames in a gray color. Not sure what the logic was on that, but it’s definitely going to change.
So, if you were given creative discretion to make this kitchen more buyer-friendly, what would you do? I have some ideas, but I would love to hear your take on this little space. We’ll compare notes. 🙂
