A kitchen is the most expensive room in your home, one where were your family spends a large chunk of their time, and a potential deal breaker for potential buyers. When you are doing a kitchen remodel or building a home, keep in mind that a well-executed kitchen could help you sell your home in the future.
First thing to consider for a remodel are the basics – update your appliances, replace dated flooring and countertops, add a fresh coat of paint, etc. Whether you are renovating for selling your home, or just to update, you should treat your cabinets as an investment.
Plan A Layout
First things first, evaluate your layout. Is your kitchen design best for the layout of the rest of your home? Are you making the most of the space? If you are renovating, consider chatting with a designer to find the best fit. We provide design consultations, contact us.We have found that an open-concept kitchen will almost always be the best route to take. Also, if you are considering a more drastic change, like an added island or more cabinets, tape it out on your floors and walls and live with it for a couple days.
High Quality Cabinets
“The lesser grades of cabinets tend not to age gracefully and often need more upkeep”, designer and owner of Cameo Kitchens Karl Keul. Investing in high quality cabinets ensures that they will stand the test of time. Even if you plan to stay in your home for the foreseeable future, high quality cabinets are a must.
Choosing the Style
Make sure the style of your kitchen is cohesive with the rest of your home. Having a modern kitchen and a traditional home may steer potential buyers away. A designer is another good choice for this as well. They can help you determine your home’s style and the cabinet front that best accentuates it.
Adding features like quiet-close cabinets and drawers, rollouts, and optimizing corners are always a good choice. These little aspects show that you have a smart kitchen design.
Remember – kitchens sell houses. If you are looking to remodel to sell your home, or just to update things, contact us.
