What's Cookin' Good Lookin'?
Staging with a few cookbooks in the kitchen and/or dining areas offers a hint that the space is food and entertaining friendly. They also add a pop of color and connote home cooked meals. Even if potential buyers aren't avid home chefs themselves, knowing the kitchen allows for more than basic meal preparation is a big plus. Try to limit the display to just a few. A huge stockpile of cookbooks could make the room feel too crowded. Choose ones with eye catching covers that capture the imagination and make folks want to get cooking in their new kitchen.
