One of the fastest ways to add value to your home is to upgrade your kitchen. This is usually as simply as new cabinets, updated appliances, and granite countertops. It is also the best way to make you feel more comfortable in your own home. Your kitchen is where you spend almost all of your time, so updating it will make it feel like you have a little more of what you wanted. Here are a few steps to follow if you are working on a kitchen remodel.
No More Money To Spend
Most of the time, you won’t have $30,000 to spend on a kitchen remodel. There are ways to do a remodel without wasting too much money though. One of the places you can save money is with cabinets. If you don’t mind the layout, you can easily use a gel or paint to refinish the cabinets. This will give the kitchen a brand new look without wasting any money. It will take an extensive amount of time to make sure you do it right. If you don’t do it right, it will look bad and will make your home look even worse, making you have to spend even more money to buy new cabinets.
Something that will make a huge difference is covering up ugly stuff or making it blend in a little bit more. For example, a base board cover could take away an ugly part of the room. Changing out the sink and faucet is pretty basic and will make your home feel much more updated. Another option is to throw in a backsplash. By adding this little bit of color, you’ll be able to make your home feel updated and modern without adding a lot of work.
The only thing that you should actually spring for in your kitchen remodel is the granite countertops. Having granite can make a huge difference to your home value even if that is all you do. It may seem kind of silly, but granite makes the kitchen look high end and is very practical. Even if you aren’t looking to sell your home, the new countertops will give your kitchen remodel a completely different look.
The last thing to consider is appliances. This is especially important for people who are looking to boost their home values. If you have old beat up appliances, people will be deterred from buying. However, new, stainless steel appliances will make buyers feel like they are getting something new. Though it is certainly not the most important thing to do in your kitchen, it is the finishing touch that will make all the difference in the end.
