Bag a butler’s sinkA white porcelain butler’s sink is hard to beat looks-wise in a traditional-style kitchen. With a period, vintage feel, they can be practical, too, as they tend to be roomy, and the boxy shape manages to look both classic and contemporary. Be sure to combine them with traditional, vintage-style taps, so they don’t ‘jar’. Also bear in mind that plates and glasses may be more likely to break during the washing-up, and porcelain can chip and crack. You’ll also need a separate drainer.

1 Have your kitchen professionally cleanedHaving a professional thoroughly clean your kitchen is one of the best investments you can make when preparing your home to sell. Yes, you could clean it yourself, but would it really look as good? A sparkling-clean kitchen is one that looks its best. 2 Be very aware of odoursMake sure all rubbish, recycling and pet-related items are removed before showing your home, and take the time to clean inside and under the containers themselves. Run a lemon down your rubbish bin. Nothing turns off a potential buyer faster than a bad smell.3 Consider fresh paintAside from cleaning, painting will give you the best value for money. Give your kitchen a new coat of paint in a hue that works with the colour of your worktops and cabinets – when in doubt, go with crisp white. Even if your kitchen was recently painted, take a close look at the walls and ceiling and touch up any imperfections, even tiny ones.
