Any time you do upgrades in your home you should think about the return on investment. Will the changes you make add value to your home or hinder what you can get for it when it comes time to sell? If you want to maximize the financial return on any remodel, especially the kitchen, stick with the basics and avoid the latest trends because the kitchen can make or break the sale of your home. Adding the latest trend ideas to your kitchen can be fun, but greater importance will be placed on solid elements like cabinets and counters when buyers consider your home. You can spend a lot of money on your new kitchen but don’t assume you’ll get a high return on it. Buyers may think it looks great, but your investment may not pay off in the end.
1. Upgrade Kitchen Cabinets
You never want your kitchen cabinets to look dated. You can maximize the value of your remodel by putting cabinets at the top of the to-do list. You don’t even have to replace them completely. You can simply paint them of replace just the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. You can even get creative and add some fun cabinet pulls.
2. Best Kitchen Paint Colors
The best way to spice up a kitchen is to pick the right color. Paint is an inexpensive way to get a great return on your investment. Go with an all-white kitchen for a timeless and traditional look or go with black to keep things cool and relaxed. Use your imagination and pick a color that really speaks to you.
3. Install Quartz Kitchen Countertops
There are options when it comes to countertops. The one that always comes out on top is quartz. Quartz is a combination of minerals and resins that looks like natural stone but is harder than natural stone. It’s a great option for kitchens because it’s very resistant to scratching and the options are endless. Keep in mind that quartz is expensive, so make sure the future sale price of your home can justify this upgrade.
4. Add a Kitchen Backsplash that Will Pop
The cost of installing a backsplash is low while the visual impact is high. The great thing about a kitchen backsplash is that it’s a relatively easy DIY project, hence the low cost. There are many options when it comes to backsplashes and you can get super creative. Make it easier and go with tile decals, laminate flooring planks or wallpaper.
5. Hang Pendant Light Over Kitchen Lighting
Many homeowners don’t even think about changing the lighting in their kitchen during a remodel. The right lighting can put a spotlight on your newly renovated kitchen. Go with pendant lighting to make an impact. Just make sure you scale the size of the pendants you choose as to not overwhelm the space and/or detract from the other elements you have incorporated into the design.
