Your Castle, Your Kitchen, Your Style

Whether you live in a cozy home on a cul de sac, a modern new build on a tree-lined street, or a renovated family estate on a beautifully-landscaped property, your home is your refuge from the hustle and bustle of the day’s agendas, traffic, and demands of work. After you’ve identfied the 5 distinctly-different zones in your kitchen, you’ll next want to consider which of the functional and aesthetically-distinct kitchen styles best meets your needs, budget, and taste.

Kitchen Style: French Provincial

The functional and fabulous French Provincial Kitchen is an artful balance between rustic and chic and perfect for families who appreciate the ornate styles found in Paris. This country-manor kitchen style can encompass everything from lots of glass, beautiful period friezes and skirting, and decorative bronze, copper, or brass handles, to wonderfully-detailed cabinet doors, moldings, turnings, and carvings.

Your Kitchen Matters

The kitchen is the heart of every family home. It’s the space where messes are made and stories are told; it’s where you can go to grab a post-work refreshment or catch the kids (both big and little) trying to snatch that midnight snack. Whether you’re looking to upgrade, remodel, or completely gut and build a brand new kitchen in your current home or your newly-purchased home, there are several purposeful steps to take that will help make the whole kitchen design process an enjoyable, stress-free, and exciting one.

5 Distinctly-Different Zones in One Fabulous Kitchen

Once you’ve taken the time to list the must-haves for your new kitchen, identify your motivation for deciding to create your dream kitchen, and establish your budget, the next step after all this kitchen planning is kitchen design. As you consider and select the best choices for your kitchen, be sure to envision the room’s whole space. You can do that easily by being mindful of the 5 integral zones that make up every kitchen.

The Preparation Zone
Perhaps of all the zones in the kitchen, it is the Preparation Zone that most homeowners dream of expanding. This is the space where vegetables are carefully chopped, pie dough is gently kneaded, and all the appetizers, entrees, and desserts for the family’s meals are prepared. It’s the space where utensils, small cooking appliances, and regularly-used seasonings and other pantry items are placed.

The Cooking Zone
From where all the wonderful culinary creations come forth, the Cooking Zo ...

Social Media -- Does It Matter?

As 2017 dawns, social media is taking over. Whether it's Snapchat, Facebook, or Instagram, everyone uses social media networks--and most people use all three! Social media is no longer just for giggling teenagers and prom pictures. These days, social media is an important avenue for marketing of all types. Here's a few tips to help you get the most of social media, whether you are looking to buy or sell a house. 

1. Get Your Friends Involved

The average Facebook user has around 400 friends. If you have 400 Facebook friends, and each your friends has 400 Facebook friends, then you likely have access to well over 75,000 unique Facebook users. That means your Facebook account could potentially market your house (or advertise your Want ad!) to 75,000 people. So it's a good place to get started. Post pictures of your house, and mention that you're thinking of selling. Even just a status-- "Thinking of selling my home. (Insert address, # bedrooms & ...

Professional Photography -- Does It Matter?

Try and photograph your home one of these days. Seriously--walk outside, stand in the front lawn. Pull out the iPhone, snap a few pictures. Easy, right? But as you look through the photos, something seems off. The tree in front looks droopy, barely alive, and the paint on the home looks two shades darker than usual. The windows have visible smudges, and the concrete steps that lead up to the front door are crumbling at the corners. Photography is hard. 
That's why the Socher Team has developed strong working relationships with the best professional photographers in the Greater Cleveland Area, striving to ensure that the pictures of your home reflect its true beauty. If your advertisement photos are poorly-lit and impressive, when the buyer comes for a tour they will need to be convinced. With professional-quality photographs, selling becomes a much easier task. If your potential buyer shows up to an open house already impressed by the home, they will be m ...
