De-Clutter These Kitchens Please

Kitchens and bathrooms sell homes.  But cluttered kitchens do not sell homes.

Cluttered counters tell buyers that this kitchen doesn’t have enough storage space.  What happened to the ceiling light?

Same house, more clutter.

Looks like a really nice kitchen.   Too bad we can’t appreciate it due to clutter.

It’s common sense.  Sigh.

The great thing is that it doesn’t cost one penny to remove all the clutter.

Note to self:  politely decline anything offered to eat or drink that’s made with a blender here.

Suggestion:  less drinking, more cleaning up.

Would your kitchen look like this if family or company were coming over?  Aren’t buyers like company?  [Trenton, New Jersey]

    At least hide the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, and some people are just lazy. It doesn’t take but a minute to place clean dishes in the proper storage location.

    The ceiling light shorted and burned. If they didn’t upgrade the wiring when they did the kitchen, there will be major problems behind the sheetrock. The washer is still in the kitchen so this house is at least 50 years old.

    what’s with the dead plants in picture 5? Trash them. Do you really need two (2) trash cans in picture 8? I also have never got the storage idea or decorating your kitchen with alcohol bottles on top of the cabinets. Just makes you look like a drunk.

    Life seems to center around the kitchen in most households. I de clutter once a week in our kitchen. We had a house with a washer in the kitchen, makes you really appreciate a utility room.

    Clutter drives me insane, but it is also distracting to the buyer….

    very odd placement for the water cooler, and the trash cans on each side of it adds to the eyesore.

    When I see homes for sale that are this messy, I have to wonder how serious the seller really is. Looks like they are trying to sabotage a potential sale.
