These Mesa, Arizona sellers wallpapered their entire home in either faux stone or faux wood.  The results are, well, see for yourself.

We asked the baby to move out of the photo, but just like the wallpaper, he’s stonewalling.

Over to the left, there’s more stone wallpaper.

The pot rack is now a utensil rack.

Everything and the Kitchen Sink

June 26th, 2013 · 5 Comments

It’s a visual smorgasbord in this Mesa, Arizona kitchen.  A little of everything thrown in.  We’re going to take a closer look, panning from left to right and sometimes down and up.

The light over the kitchen island looks a bit dusty.

Good thing there aren’t earthquakes in Mesa.  Otherwise, bye, bye, spices.  The photographer’s thumb got in the way.

There’s some kind of crank thing on the kitchen island.  If I’m not mistaken, it’s a grinder of sorts and could be an ice crusher.

They rag-rolled the kitchen cabinets.  The world’s smallest Tibetan prayers flags are hanging on the chair.  Lots of visual distractions here.

We look down to admire the faux paint technique on the cabinets.

We look up to admire the pot rack!

It’s hard for your eyes to focus on one part.

The knives are certainly handy.

Pots & Pans

Pot racks are a visual distraction in real estate promotional photos.

They can ruin the photo.

I see two tall cabinets and lower cabinets.  So why the pot rack?

This looks a million times better.  Clear off the pot rack when selling.

Pot Racks In Your Face

October 29th, 2012 · 6 Comments

The pot rack dominates the kitchen.  Does it really need to be there?  [Chandler, Arizona]

The pot rack blocks the view of the kitchen.  Are you pushing the pot rack or the kitchen?  [New River, Arizona]

Here’s a suggestion:  remove all the pots and pans from the pot rack as seen here.  That way, buyers can see the entire kitchen.  Also, please remove the cat from the photo.  Thanks, Lisa, for noticing the dog’s face in the lower right corner.  [Apache Junction, Arizona]

He’s a monitor monitor, keeping an eye on that old computer monitor, just in case any dust falls on the plastic cover.

We posted this Westwego, Louisiana home in late August 2008 and wished them well before Hurricane Gustav arrived.  We hope it’s still standing after Hurricane Isaac blew through this year.

Hang the Pots

July 31st, 2012 · 2 Comments

This Cadillac, Michigan seller hangs her pots all in a row (thank you) and not over the sink or middle of the kitchen (thank you).

“We want to block the view out the window.”  [Elmira, New York]  You could take the pots down for the photo, you know.  Looks like a very nice, clean kitchen otherwise.

These Peoria, Arizona sellers like to hang plastic grapes and other stuff from their pot rack.

Not a bad idea.  A strip of wood and some nails.  At least you don’t hit your head on the pots and pans.

Kudos to these Glendale, Arizona sellers.  Seriously.  Great job!  They still include the pot rack (with handy built-in lights too) in the spotless kitchen photo, but no stupid pots to clutter up the photo.  This is how you present a pot rack to buyers.
