Kitchen Design: Boost Your Home's Value
Did you know that the kitchen is the most valuable room in your home? A great kitchen can increase the value of your house by 5% to 7%. That’s why it’s important to pay the most attention to cleaning and renovating this room when putting your house on the market. Here are a few things you can do to easily give your kitchen new life without spending a great deal of money.
You should ensure that your kitchen is entirely de-cluttered. Clear your counters of any appliances that are crowding the space. This means that kettles, toasters and microwaves can be put away in the cabinets during viewers. It is important for the space to look as open as possible.
Investing in new appliances is a great way to help your home sell faster and increase the value of the property. Larger appliances are more expensive (and you may not recoup their cost), so you can focus on smaller appliances. Replacing your cooker hood, kitchen sink, tap and hob will give your kitchen new life – and, you can purchase these new items for less than £500 depending on the models you choose. Stainless steel appliances are not only affordable – they tend to be very eye-catching and attractive to people viewing your home, giving the room a clean and contemporary look.
Potential buyers spend a great deal of time examining kitchen cabinets and counters. These can be quite expensive to replace, but it can make a huge difference in your home’s asking price. If this is not within your budget, consider a new coat of paint and new handles for your drawers and cabinets. A coloured backsplash can also help to add some panache to your kitchen, making it more attractive during viewings.
