Fixing the kitchen could even give you great return on your investment.  It could help you sell sooner, too! Today’s kitchen designs can also make a small area much more usable, increasing the potential of interest in your home if the kitchen is a small one.

When It Comes To Boosting Your Home’s Value…

Consider remodeling your kitchen. Areas to consider include the kitchen cabinets, adding an island, and redoing your floors. Lighting, backsplash, and other finishing touches make a big difference, too!

Here are some tips:

  • Look for neutral designs when you’re remodeling before planning to sell a home. Consider your finishing touches carefully. Too modern or too country looking could limit your buyers! People may not want to buy something that is too different from their taste and personality. Buyers will know it’s not practical to rip it out to replace it when it has just been done.
  • Tying the kitchen together with the other rooms.When considering the cabinet finish and even the hardware, consider the look and feel of the rest of the home, particularly if the home has an open concept feel to it. This can make a big difference to the overall feel of a house.
  • Is your bathroom dated or in rough shape as well? This is an area in addition to kitchen remodeling that could help you boost the perceived value of your home. Consider keeping it in a similar category, finish wise, to the kitchen.
  • Have a big basement in the home? You could up the value of your home by making it an income property with a kitchen and bathroom. Smaller and less expensive kitchens can be installed, thereby increasing the value proposition of the home.
