If the kitchen sells the house, what about the kitchen photos?

It’s part of common wisdom in real estate: the kitchen sells the house.

“For today’s home buyer, the kitchen is typically the most important room in the house – an area where form and function are equally important,” reports Realty Times’ Michele Dawson. “Buyers view kitchens as an area that has many functions – preparing dinner, sharing meals, sorting mail, paying bills, and generally hanging out.”

One survey Dawson cites found 85% of respondents felt the condition of the kitchen was a “major consideration” in their decision to buy.

If the kitchen sells the house, what about the kitchen photos? This is the room buyers are going to give the most scrutiny online. The quality of the photos is critical.

So, what makes a great kitchen photo?

Of course, all the usual standards apply – great composition, proper exposure and lighting, crisp focus. But there are lots of shiny surfaces in the kitchen, so the photographer has to know how to give the room just the right amount of “sparkle” while avoiding glare.

The photographer also needs to know how to capture a sense of the space. Is it a small space or a large one? How’s it going to flow? Is it formal or casual? What’s its relationship to the dining area or living room/family room?
