Whether you're planning on selling your home in the near future or just enhancing it now for your own enjoyment, your kitchen is a great place to focus some of your attention.

If your kitchen is dreary, disorganized, and grungy, then several aspects of your life could be negatively impacted.

One surefire way to start your day on a sour note is to be "greeted" first thing in the morning by stacks of unwashed dishes, dirty cookware, and spills! Sound familiar? It happens to everyone occasionally, but it becomes a major issue when it occurs on a regular basis. Messy kitchens can not only leave you feel frustrated and irritable, but they can be a contributing factor to family squabbles.

Here's a related scenario that's worth avoiding at almost all costs: Leaning your arm on a dirty counter and realizing you're now wearing last night's tomato sauce or Cabernet on your work clothes! We won't even go into that sinking feeling you get when an important document, research paper, or business report gets placed on a wet counter top!

There's no solution that works flawlessly every time, but establishing consistent habits, routines, and family responsibilities is a great starting point. While it may be a bit of hassle to keep reminding your kids to clean up after themselves and put their dirty dishes in the dishwasher, it's usually worth it when you know you're not going to have to wake up to a messy kitchen!

Other ways to ensure your kitchen is an inspiring place, rather than a depressing one, is to remove clutter from counter tops and tables, keep windows clean and unobstructed, and make sure artificial lighting is adequate in dining and food preparation areas. Replacing old, heavy window treatments and installing recessed lighting with dimmer switches can also enhance the look and feel of your kitchen.

Besides doing a partial or complete remodel of your kitchen -- which many homeowners need to do at least once -- there are a lot of small, more affordable touches that can make your kitchen a more inviting and enjoyable place to spend time. Colorful wall art, a bowl of fresh fruit, a flower arrangement, and the use of citrus-scented cleaners are a few simple touches that can set the stage for a cleaner, more cheerful living space.

Painting or re-staining kitchen cabinets may be more of a cumbersome job than you're willing to tackle, but it can dramatically freshen up the appearance of your kitchen. For some homeowners, cabinet refacing is an economical choice that is relatively simple and budget friendly.

Cleaning and organizing your pantry, kitchen cabinets, and refrigerator is also a good way to weed out expired grocery products and take inventory of what needs to be replaced. When ingredients and food supplies are easy to find, mealtime tends to be more relaxing and enjoyable for everyone.

As my Grandmother will tell you, "There are three important considerations when purchasing a home. Location, location and location." This gothic revival style home is nestled on a dead end street in the highly desirable Fairmount neighborhood of Hyde Park. Situated on the Milton line, this property offers you all of the conveniences of living in the city while still allowing you the privacy and feel of a small town. With over a 1/4 acre lot, there are just as many possibilities for the yard as there are for the house. It will take some work, but this home is ready for another chance to shine like the jewel it once was. Update this property to your personal taste instead of paying for someone else's updates. Call your Realtor and schedule a showing today or join us at our Open House!

Stunning does not even begin to describe this incredible property. This exceptional Victorian era home has been beautifully restored to incorporate many of today's modern amenities while continuing to preserve the charm that makes it special. The kitchen would not be out of place on the cover of a magazine. The tiled floors, white shaker cabinets, quartz countertops, oiled bronze faucet and hardware, subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances are all brought together tastefully. With four great sized bedrooms and two full bathrooms, this property has the versatility to function for almost anyone. Along with the updates that are evident, upgrades were also done to the heating, plumbing, and electrical systems. Call your Realtor today to schedule a showing or join us at one of our Open Houses.
