A renovation expert knows where to save and where to spend money on your kitchen if you’re looking to increase your home value.
Today, the kitchen has become the heartbeat of every home, its where buyers tend to focus more on when they are looking at property that is for sale. If you are thinking of a befitting kitchen renovation, David Bishop of Acura Developments, a renowned professional discusses where to save and where to spend to enable you to maximize your ROI.
Investing some money and time into your kitchen renovation will help to enhance your home’s value, increasing the sale price when you want to sell it. Interestingly, you don’t need to carry out a complete kitchen renovation before you can reap the reward of your investment. If your kitchen’s condition is good, all what may be required could be some few, sharply focused upgrade that would increase its value and make it look updated.
The following upgrades will reward you in the best way possible.
An island will offer you a new work surface and better ways to store your kitchen items.
The introduction of a kitchen island is equally a perfect way to recreate the kitchen into an open plan dining space.
Points to note:
Buyers are always looking for good storage. Hence, if you are doing a kitchen renovation, optimize storage by deploying cupboard installations that will occupy your wall’s full length, from the ceiling to the floor, and maximize the width also.
Point to note: open shelving would require styling and cleaning occasionally, so install in spots that you can easily reach. Closed cupboards are better off installed in high positions. Use them for storing items that you don’t use every time, like platters and storage boxes.
This is among the first items buyers turn to whenever they are assessing a property to buy. So you want to have this item upgraded to something with great style and quality. I like to recommend hard-wearing laminate as one of my benchtop options, especially if you don’t have too much money to spare on this. It could be designed to look like timber and marble, while it doesn’t cost as much. If you feel like spending on a benchtop, upgrade to something that can last the test of time like quartz or granite.
Point to note:
When undertaking your kitchen renovation, be careful of the colour palette of your finishes. Although you may prefer a bright red splashback with yellow tiles, ask yourself if that is what buyers will like. For ceilings, walls and floors, go with neutral colours that will not become outdated like beige, grey, and white.
Points to note: if you are concerned with colour, include it within your accessories like a funky barstools, an appealing pendant light, or coffee machine that is brightly coloured. You can easily have these changed if the buyer does not like them.
High-quality appliances will reward your kitchen with that instant facelift and increase its value. While your kitchen is still in your care, using the most recent appliances can make your cooking a lot easier.
Points to note: Preferably, buy all your appliances from one brand and same range to ensure a coordinated and stylish outlook.
Prospective buyers really love to take a good look at your lighting scheme. Good lighting lets you work smartly inside your kitchen and gives you the opportunity to change the mood. Great for kitchens within an open-plan space.
Points to note:
Upgrade hardware: equips your kitchen cabinet with a brand new look.
Reface cabinets: brand new cabinets are not cheap. If the ones you have are in good shape but a bit outdated, you can reface them instead of replacing them altogether. Degreasing, staining, and painting or sanding the cabinet make an outdated kitchen to appear sleek and updated. They are not as expensive as the new cabinets.
Reach for the paint brush: There is no easier and quicker way to have an outdated kitchen transformed than painting. It isn’t for walls only – there are specialist paint offers for tiles and appliances, benchtops, and a host of others.
