Remodeling your kitchen can be an expensive endeavor, which is why it’s so important to invest your hard-earned money into the things that will provide the biggest return on investment. Adding value to your home is important no matter if you plan to sell in the near future or not. A gorgeous kitchen is the focal point of your entire home. However, you need to understand that not all kitchen remodeling projects will significantly raise the value of your property. The following information will provide you with a few upgrades that not only provide you with a return on your investment but add a lot of value to your home.
So, without further ado, here is how to make the best investments when remodeling your kitchen. First and foremost, adding an island is one of the very best ways to increase the value of your home when remodeling your kitchen. In essence, kitchen islands add more counter and storage space. They can make a kitchen feel a lot larger than it actually is. In addition, kitchen islands never go out of style, which makes it an incredibly safe investment. Another great investment to make when remodeling your kitchen is to replace, update, or even paint your cabinets.
Replacing the cabinets, updating the hardware, or painting them will change the entire look and feel of your kitchen. Of course, it depends on your budget. If you can afford new cabinets, then go for it. Better yet, if you can afford to have custom kitchen cabinets installed then do so. They will add the most value. However, having your cabinets refaced or refinished and adding new hardware is a cost-effective way to upgrade your kitchen on a budget. If you’re picking new hardware, it’s important to keep in mind that you don’t need to match the existing finishes that are currently in your kitchen.
Notice the finishes that you have on your appliances, lighting, and plumbing fixtures. Choose hardware that blends in with those finishes. It does not need to be an exact match. Replacing the countertops is another good investment when remodeling your kitchen. Granite used to be in style, but now people want a much brighter, lighter look. White quartz or porcelain countertops have been all the rage the last few years. Although marble is expensive, it will provide you with the absolute best return on investment.
Last but certainly not least, it’s important to upgrade your kitchen appliances. Stainless-steel has been popular for many years, and still remains the go to material to this day. In addition, you should purchase the highest quality kitchen appliances based on your budget. Keep in mind that quality stands the test of time.
