Make The Most of Your Kitchen

The kitchen is often the centerpiece and most frequently used room in your home. In fact, it’s so important, many buyers may not even consider buying your home if they don’t like the kitchen. Remodeling or upgrading your kitchen can be expensive. However, a successful kitchen facelift can be done with just cost-effective updates!

Ideas to Spice Up Your Kitchen Without Breaking the Bank

FRESHEN UP: A fresh paint job in the kitchen is a great first step. If you have a bold color, consider painting a neutral tone. Cabinets can also be repainted or stained for a fresh, new look.

  • KEEP IT CONSISTENT: Do you have mismatched appliances? Instead of completely replacing them, order new front panels from the manufacturer so all of them match.
  • UPGRADE YOUR HARDWARE: Adding new or modern hardware to the kitchen can change the whole look inexpensively. Take a look at pinterest or home decorators magazines for inspiration.
  • LET IT SHINE: Bring light into the space by replacing heavy window coverings with lighter ones. Swap dim light bulbs with new fixtures that work well with your kitchen. Adding a modern pendant can help your kitchen to stand out.
  • DE-CLUTTER: The counters should be clear of clutter to emphasize a large and clean prepping area. Try embellishing the space with a bowl of fruit, candles, nice soap, new dish towels or bottles of gourmet cooking oils.

Let Us Help!

We have worked with many clients, banks and asset managers to remodel their homes to get the best price for the neighborhood and know many contractors in the area. Our real estate experience and specific knowledge of your community can help match your budget to home upgrades which may provide a good return on investment. We can provide valuable insight on keeping upgrades in line with the rest of your home and other homes in your neighborhood. If homes in your neighborhood with neat and simple kitchens are selling, it’s probably unwise to consider expensive upgrades and may not provide a return. In contrast, if most homes in your community feature state of the art kitchens, planning an upgrade would be a good idea before listing. Call us today for a consultation.
