The Trusty Kitchen Countertop That Steers Away Potential Homebuyers
A kitchen can make or break a house sale more than any other room, and having stainless steel countertops can deter buyers due to their industrial look and
requisite maintenance.
Stainless steel is hygienic, corrosion-resistant, durable, and non-porous, so it resists staining and absorbing odors. However, its clean, clinical look is not to everyone’s taste.
It is also very prone to scratches and smudges, picking up fingerprints and damage from food prep easily. Plus, it can be just as expensive as popular materials like granite.
Before any buyers come to view your home, ensure your stainless steel counters are shiny and clean. Add warm lighting or some plants to make the kitchen feel homier as well.
