An updated, stylish kitchen is said to improve a homes value and its odds for quick resale. At the same time, its helpful if a listing is something of a blank slate. “Its critical that a prospective buyer see themselves in the space—or at least be able to see the possibility of that,” says John Nations, construction manager for New Pointe Communities, a custom residential developer in San Diego. But design trends change regularly, making whats considered fashionable today possibly passé tomorrow. Some of us can remember when backsplashes were routinely decorated with tiles depicting fruit-filled cornucopias, but few buyers can see themselves prepping dinners or entertaining within such a space today. Same goes for dark wood kitchens with beams dangling with rustic baskets: Once cozy and romantic, theyre now looked upon as outdated and claustrophobic.
While many see this option as something of a throwback, wallpaper has found favor among more design professionals of late and for multiple reasons. “A graphic paper can define an activity area in an open-plan space; colorfully patterned papers can pull together a palette in a room, and gold, silver, or pewter leaf paper, which we use often, add stature, drama, and radiance when coupled with the right kind of lighting,” says Chicago-based designer Jessica LaGrange. “Wallpaper can hide cosmetic blemishes or introduce pattern in rooms where all the walls are taken such as a kitchen or family area with copious cabinetry.” Pogonitz, who likes using bold and detailed patterns on ceilings, says its important to do the same prep work as you would for any wall surface—”patch and smooth out the ceiling as needed.”
