Kitchen Upgrades That Increase Home Values

March 1, 2022 12:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Families spend as much time — if not more — in the kitchen as any other place in the home. Here is the spot to cook, gather, talk, and get your day started. It might be time for kitchen remodeling if your kitchen has seen better days. Upgrading your kitchen should be done with thoughtfulness and practicality.

Even if you are not currently planning to sell your home, you should consider upgrades that would boost value, just in case. If you plan to sell your home, you definitely want to stick with projects that will draw in buyers and increase your home’s value. Let’s take a look at a few projects that a remodeling contractor might recommend to add new life and new value to your home. 

Renew Cabinets

Renewing cabinets is not the same as replacing cabinets. Renewing cabinets can be an inexpensive way to give your entire kitchen a new face. You can start by picking out trendy colors for repainting. Be sure your cabinets are properly cleaned before painting. Grease and dust can collect on cabinets over time, adding a layer of sticky grime.

Once you have repainted, you can finish off the new look with new hardware. Replacing old worn-out knobs, handles and hinges will create a shiny new look. You’ll be shocked at how inexpensive it can be to bring new life to old cabinets.

Add or Replace Backsplash

If your kitchen does not have a backsplash, this is a great, low-cost addition. The backsplash is both practical and stylish. It provides an easy-to-clean surface in messy areas of your kitchen, such as along countertops or behind the stove. This eliminates the need to constantly scrub grease or other messes off of your paint.

If you have had your backsplash for a while, you can give your kitchen a new style by adding a dramatically different backsplash. You can get creative with colors and textures.

A backsplash can be as simple or detailed as you like. There are simple adhesive tiles you can easily install in a few hours or detailed permanent tiles. The choice is yours.

New Lighting

Updating lighting is one of the easiest ways to renew a kitchen. Most people do not realize how outdated their lighting is because it is just not something you look at every day. Updating the lighting allows you to modernize an older kitchen quickly and easily.

Replace Countertops

You might consider replacing old countertops if you have more time and money to invest. Countertops get a lot of abuse and use in a kitchen. If you have older countertops made from less than ideal materials, a countertop upgrade will dramatically change your kitchen and add value.

New Sinks

If you are adding new countertops, it is properly a good idea to go ahead and pick out a new sink too. Along with the countertop, sinks also get a lot of use and abuse. A shiny new sink will renew the kitchen and the update adds value to the home.
