How to Remodel a Kitchen for Resale


If you are considering remodeling your kitchen in order to boost your home’s resale value, make use of the tips below to get the most bang for your buck.

Everyone knows that a beautiful kitchen can make an irresistible centerpiece of any home and do incredible things for its resale value. However, this must be approached strategically and with certain important factors kept in mind in order for a remodel to be its most beneficial. If you are considering remodeling your kitchen in order to boost your home’s resale value, make use of the tips below to get the most bang for your buck.

No one will know what’s selling, what’s popular, and what is not attractive to homebuyers better than a local real estate professional. Talk to one and find out what is on trend and what is repelling homebuyers. Research what they are currently marketing and include those things in your kitchen when remodelling for resale. Sometimes it’s a design feature or color. Sometimes it is a finish or a brand name.

Keep It Simple  

When in doubt, choose neutrals. They have a beautiful universal appeal that can inspire home buyers to want to make a kitchen their own. Choose neutral cabinets, countertops, floors, backsplashes, appliances, and backsplashes. A common misconception is the neutral means ‘all white.’ In fact, all white can make a space look stark and harsh. Create a soothing and inviting space by choosing soft muted creams, tans, and greys. Select features that are not busy or loud when remodelling for resale.

Avoid Unnecessary Extremes

While you may feel like splurging on the ultimate in luxury may be the only way to reel in potential homebuyers, that is simply not the case. In fact, spending too much on remodelling your kitchen for resale can negatively affect how much you earn from the sale ultimately. While it is important to not scrimp so excessively that your kitchen looks lackluster, spending excessive amounts of money alone does not guarantee a sale.
