A kitchen can make or break the sale of your house, so you want to ensure your remodel appeals to the masses. In general, you want your kitchen renovation to earn about a 70 percent on investment when you sell your home. Continue reading for a few tips on how to remodel your kitchen for resale.
Open floor plans continue to be on trend, and there is no sign of them stopping any time soon! If you have the budget to open up your kitchen by knocking down a few walls, it can definitely be worth it to ensure multiple sellers will be interested. If your entire first floor is open- even better! Buyers love an easy flow from the kitchen, dining room, and TV/family room, as well as plenty of natural light throughout the home.
Keep It Simple
When remodeling for resale, it’s essential to keep in mind that you are not designing for yourself, you are designing for all potential buyers. This means that you should avoid specific designs and bold colors, but keep it simple and minimal. Neutral countertops, cabinets, floors, and appliances don’t have to be boring, but they should be sleek and able to pair with various styles.
A Few Special Features
While the majority of the kitchen should remain simple, it’s also nice to add a few special touches! To impress homebuyers and convince them that they can’t live without your kitchen, add convenience features such as a pull-out pantry, stone countertops, extravagant lighting fixtures, and more. Buyers will appreciate the neutral design with the extra touches that make the kitchen special.
While you don’t need to spend your whole budget on the highest end items and features, buyers are looking for new appliances with energy-efficient appliances. Today’s appliances have many benefits, as they run quieter, save energy, and are cost-effective. Make sure your kitchen is up-to-date with appliances and features to appeal to buyers of all ages.
