More than any other room or feature in the home, the kitchen has the capability of making or breaking a deal. If you are looking to sell your home in the coming months or years – or simply want a surefire way to add value to your investment – the most popular room in the house is without question one of the best places to start working.
To make the process of a kitchen renovation maximize the resale value of your home, we have taken the liberty of compiling a few tips to help you along the way.
How much natural light is available in the kitchen? Do you need to install more lights to brighten the area? These are two important questions to ask when considering the lighting situation in your kitchen. If needed change old, archaic lights for new, innovative ones. Use energy-efficient bulbs. Add a window if possible! There are any number of styles and finishes to choose from in this area, but be creative.
Energy Star efficient appliances are a very nice touch to any contemporary kitchen being outfitted to hike the eventual resale value of a home. Stainless steel appliances are quite popular, as one example of a style that can work well in a kitchen reaching its maximum aesthetic potential.
Few people think of the significance of efficient, decorative faucets when gauging the resale value of a home. Sink faucets are traditionally easy and inexpensive to replace. Because of that fact, it can be facile but invaluable to replace old faucets with new, attractive taps, all on a budget that is essentially as a big or small as you wish it to be.
If the style or colour of the cabinets in your home is out of fashion, it can be a definite asset to a one-day resale to upgrade those in your kitchen. In the case where cabinet boxes are in good shape, a little paint can really help revitalize the overall appearance of the kitchen. Otherwise, consider refacing the cabinets or replacing the doors altogether.
It goes without saying that paint is one of the simplest, least costly ways to add a new face to your kitchen. One of the first things potential buyers will inevitably notice is the colour and texture of the surfaces in your kitchen. Sure, beiges have been the cornerstone of indoor home painting. But, once again be creative, consider rich and unique tones like sage, which can add flare to any kitchen!
