Kitchen Remodels Increasing Home Values
When it comes to our homes, we tend to focus on the present, rather than on the future. While there’s nothing wrong with that, someday you might move out of your current home. If and when that time comes, you want to be able to sell your home for as much as possible. One essential way to increase your home’s resale value is to update or remodel the kitchen. Here are some particular ways to remodel a kitchen, usually leading to an increase in home value.
Natural stone countertops
Natural stone countertops are a popular choice for today’s homeowners and are great for a kitchen update. The main reason? They look amazing and last a long time. The other reason? They add to a home’s resale value. Natural stone countertops, like granite and quartz, won’t go away anytime soon. They simply have too much to offer. Thus, potential home buyers will be impressed when they see a granite or quartz countertops in your kitchen. You can ask more for your home, and you’ll probably get more if your kitchen has a natural stone countertops.
On the same note, flooring also has a big influence on prospect buyers. There’s a greater chance a buyer will be pickier about flooring than countertops. Additionally, it’s not likely that a buyer will have a problem with granite countertops, but he/she might prefer wood flooring instead of tile, for instance. Nevertheless, new flooring can help with resale value because the new flooring is guaranteed to last for many years to come. If you choose to have new flooring installed, porcelain tile or natural stone flooring will add to resale value the most out of all the options. Porcelain is cheaper to install than natural stone, but natural stone will add more value.
You just can’t go wrong with stainless steel appliances for a kitchen remodel. They are your best bet for modernization and your best bet to interest numerous buyers. Just make sure that you don’t overdo it. A pizza oven or hibachi grill will probably be too much, and won’t be of value to most interested parties. Instead, an advanced dishwasher or a multifaceted refrigerator will probably be more enticing.
New paint job
Repainting your kitchen can work wonders for your for-sale home. Paint your kitchen a color that compliments your countertops and appliances (and cabinetry, if possible). Certain colors can create an appeal that the room, or home, is a larger and more open space than it actually is. These colors tend to be on the lighter side, such as a light green or grey. Experts say that the addition of a window to the kitchen can create the illusion of more space as well. One thing is for sure, all homeowners love the idea of having more space.
