Considering any home remodeling ideas can be a fun but daunting task. Kitchen remodeling ideas are still taking the lead in all home renovations, and for good reason. If you plan to sell your home, the kitchen is still the room in your home that may make or break the sale. So how can you be sure that your custom kitchen design is going to give you an excellent return on your investment?
New Life Bath and Kitchen has a few ways to make sure your kitchen renovation will suit your needs while also appealing to potential buyers in Santa Maria, CA.
Stay on budget
One of the most important items to consider when you are renovating any room in your home is to stay on budget with your kitchen remodeling costs. According to HGTV, you can spend anywhere from six to ten percent of your total home value on your kitchen renovation while still getting back a solid return on your investment.
Keeping your current kitchen layout will help you if you have a tight budget. Cosmetic changes such as refacing kitchen cabinets, changing out hardware, and adding new appliances can make a huge difference while staying on budget. If your kitchen truly needs a new layout and walls must be torn down, be sure that your budget allows for it.
Open up the space
If your kitchen layout feels tight and cramped, it may be worth the money to open up your space. Potential buyers are looking for a kitchen to feel big and open.
Keep your colors neutral
Unless you plan on staying in your home forever, it’s important to have colors and features that other people can see themselves living in. Choosing countertops and a backsplash in more muted colors will help your kitchen to be appealing to many potential buyers. You certainly do not have to live in an all-white kitchen, but try to avoid using bright colors that can’t easily be changed. For example, go neutral on countertops and the backsplash, but you can add in fun colors in your accessories.
Have a few unexpected features
Since you are taking the time and money to renovate your kitchen, think of some features that anyone may enjoy. Mounted under cabinet lighting creates a beautiful ambience to any space. Sneak in extra storage where you can and make room for a custom kitchen island.
Whether you are planning to put your house on the market this year or you’re waiting a few years for a big move, a kitchen renovation will still get you the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to any home remodeling project.
