Anyone who is considering selling their home knows that the kitchen is a focal point for prospective buyers. Since so much time is spent in the space, the condition of the kitchen and its design are important criteria to the buyers’ interest in buying the home. With that in mind, here are 4 tips to getting your kitchen in resale-shape:
Keep the Style Simple
Your personal taste may include bright colors and complicated patterns, but the best way to use your kitchen to land potential home buyers is to keep the design as simple as possible. Let the lines and open areas of the kitchen shine through so your potential buyers can overlay their own design ideas as they walk the space.
Open the Space
If, as you rethink your design you notice your kitchen seems a little closed up, perhaps you have an unnecessary wall that makes the area seem smaller than it is, now is the time to consider removing the wall or doors that are limiting the open area.
Keep your Updates Economical
If you intend to invest in updates inn your kitchen to make it more palatable for resale, be sure you understand the return on investment for any of your design changes. In other words, keep your updates focused on what could increase your sale potential and possibly your selling price, nothing extraneous.
Add Some Wow!
Add color and pop to your kitchen by refinishing your kitchen cabinets. You will create the effect of brand new cabinets at a fraction of the cost of replacing them, and give your potential home buyers an updated design to be the center-point of their new home.
