Preparing Your Home For Sale Dining And Breakfast Areas

Preparing Your Home For Sale Dining And Breakfast Areas

A formal dining room will have great appeal to many buyers so showcase it for what it is:  a great space!  The same applies to dining areas in an open concept layout with combined living/dining/kitchen space and also to a breakfast area in the kitchen.  Regardless of the set-up of your home's dining area(s), you always want to create an image of spaciousness.  If you have large or multiple pieces of furniture consider taking a leaf out of your table, reducing the number of dining chairs or moving a buffet or sideboard to storage.  If the space is expansive then play that up and demonstrate how many people can comfortably fit at the dining table for enjoyable entertaining.  The following points should also be considered:

1.       Eating spaces can present challenges by their very nature:  food is served and can therefore be dropped on the floor creating spots and stains.  Therefore make sure all flooring is cleaned and spotless.


2.       If your dining area is carpeted and the carpet is beyond cleaning or repair, replacing it will usually bring a good return on your investment.


3.       Clean chandeliers or light fixtures replacing all burnt out light bulbs.


4.       Ensure all baseboards, crown molding and sconces are clean and dust free.


5.       Make sure any kitchen or dining tables have not become collection sites for mail and other clutter, or have not become an extension of the living area.  Make the space definitive as dining space. 

Everyone needs a dining space whether it’s a separate room or an area within the kitchen or combined with the living area.  Maximize what yours has to offer so the buyer sees the value.
