Seven Tips for Kitchen Updates

Luxury white large modern kitchen.Up-to-date kitchens are on top of the list with home buyers. If you are thinking about updating your home’s kitchen, here are some tips to consider:

  1. Lighting
    Lighting sets the mood in a room and the kitchen is no different. Be sure there is plenty of natural light as well as task light for food preparation.
  2. Cabinets
    If your cabinets is outdated, consider re-facing or painting them. Worn-out cabinets can be a turn off to buyers as they start thinking about remodeling costs.
  3. Countertops
    A neutral countertop (made from granite or a laminate) is more appealing. Make sure you have plenty of space for cooking and preparation needs.
  4. Appliances
    Outdated appliances lower the appeal of your kitchen. State-of-the-art ones not only improve the look of your kitchen but will give you energy efficiencies as well.
  5. Paint
    Painting your kitchen is one of the most economic ways to improve the appeal of your kitchen. Consider upgrading to a neutral color.
  6. Built Ins
    When remodeling your kitchen, consider built ins as they are appealing to buyers. Wine coolers, bread warmers, knife racks and coffee spaces will make your kitchen look more custom and inviting.
  7. Planning
    Really think through where everything is going to be stored if you are totally remodeling your kitchen. Plates, bowls and flatware should be near the dishwasher to make unloading easier.
