Today I’m coming to you from one of our home projects to show you some examples of ways to increase value in your kitchen with simple updates. You can see before-and-after photos of the project in the video above.
1. Expand. At the house in question, we weren’t able to knock out walls in the galley kitchen, which is very narrow. However, if you can open up your kitchen and connect it more to the family and/or great room, it will add quite a bit of value.
2. Updating the countertops and cabinets. These are a bit more expensive to change, but replacing outdated items in these areas can give your kitchen more value. Cabinet hardware is a good, low-cost way to boost value, as well.
3. Upgrade your lighting. Simply switching your light bulbs to LEDs can better illuminate the kitchen, making it look brighter and larger.
4. Add stainless steel or black appliances. Both types are very popular in the market right now, so replacing outdated appliances is a good way to make your kitchen look and feel better.
5. Change out the faucet and sink. At our project house, we also took out the small window above the sink to add more cabinet space, given how small of a kitchen it was.
6. Apply a new coat of paint.
7. Change out the flooring. Linoleum isn’t very popular right now, so we put in some tile and vinyl planks to meet popular demand.
8. Replacing or painting the kitchen door. This home had a chalkboard door, which looked dirty. We cleaned it up by giving it a nice coat of white paint.
Even if you’re not selling your home, these are at least some ways to make it so you enjoy cooking and spending time in your kitchen.
If you or someone you know is looking to remodel their home to give it the most value possible, feel free to reach out to me. I’d love to help you.
