Five tips for improving your kitchen value
Are you thinking of selling your home? Or do you want to improve its aesthetics? Whatever the reason may be, the kitchen is the best place to start.
It’s not necessary to do a large scale project. Sometimes a few minor updates like a kitchen respray goes a long way toward improving your kitchen value. These tips should prove helpful in maximizing your kitchen’s value.
As usual, start by setting a budget so you get carried away with your updates!
Next, focus on your cabinets and hardware because they establish your kitchen’s style while providing necessary storage and workspace. You don’t have to spend much if your cabinet boxes are structurally sound.
- A kitchen respray
A kitchen respray with your chosen colours helps improve the looks and aesthetics of the cabinetry and kitchen. Just changing to nickel-plated hardware goes a long way toward giving your cabinetry a fresh look.
- Give your walls a fresh coat of paint
Similarly, painting or refinishing your walls is also a great way to add value to the kitchen. A fresh coat of paint makes your kitchen bright and inviting, especially if you select trendy shades like white, gray, or ivory.
Don’t forget to paint the wall space behind countertops. Your kitchen backsplashes are stylish and the room’s focal points, and protect your walls from splatters and stains.
Your kitchen value increases a lot just by adding some natural stone or quartz countertops to it. Look for something scratch and stain-resistant, which are practically maintenance-free.
- Light fixtures
There are so many types of light fixtures you can buy to brighten up all kitchen corners. Your options include pendants, chandeliers, and under-cabinet lighting that collectively improve your kitchen’s decor. Interchangeable patterned glass pendants are an exciting addition to any kitchen, especially over islands.
If you plan to change your flooring, you could consider hardwood and laminate floors. They are popular with a great return on investment because they are unique and stylishly designed. They are considered a more luxurious addition to your kitchen and fetch a reasonable rate for it.
Laminates come in so many styles and look so much like real wood or ceramic tile. They are durable, easily installed, and you can easily replace damaged pieces with their snap-and-lock technology. They cost 50% of genuine products, but improve your kitchen’s looks by 100%.
There you go. These simple but useful tips go a long way in improving your kitchen’s value and aesthetics. Procedures like a kitchen respray are not so expensive, and you can even have each project completed at a time frame as per your convenience and budget.
