Are you a new homeowner or looking to sell your home after renovations are done? Whatever your reasoning for renovating, it’s important that your kitchen is the place you should start. Functional kitchens, as well as beautiful kitchens that are done correctly are extremely important in maintaining a fantastic house, as well as one that will withstand the test of time.
The Resale Value of Your Home Will Skyrocket
Dated kitchens are a huge reason why real estate sales fall through. Take a look at any show that involves house hunting and a comment will be made about the kitchen at least once an episode. Early this year, a report was released stating that there’s typically an average of 81% of a return on kitchens, allowing your resale value to skyrocket when you put the investment into it. A renovated kitchen means your house sits on the market for a lot less time than without.
Improve Functionality of Your Kitchen
Sure, you have a functional kitchen, and your house has decent square footage, but does the placement of everything work? Maybe you could move the fridge away from the oven or move the dishwasher so it’s more convenient and less cramped. Expanding the size of your kitchen and making sure your appliances are in the perfect spot ensure a much more “functional” kitchen in terms of everyone fitting and being happy.
Improve Your Energy Efficiency
Tired of paying a ton of bills? Want to make sure your home sells? The addition of energy efficient appliances will sound appealing to not only your utility bills, but to potential buyers in the future. Anything in your kitchen that’s labeled, “ENERGY STAR” is an official energy saving appliance, and can help you save a ton of money, and reduce wasted water and electricity.
Happiness in an Aesthetically Pleasing Environment
Who doesn’t like to love the house they live in? Don’t you want to be proud when you invite your friends over? So why would you start renovations in a room that no one goes in? Work your way around the house from where people will be spending the most time and move outwards. There’s no point in spending money in an area that isn’t going to be used very often – unless you have plans on selling.
More Comfort and Safety
When you update your cabinets and appliances, as well as having them installed professionally, you have an added sense of security and comfort, while enjoying the appearance of your new kitchen! If you don’t understand the appliances, don’t risk a DIY job.
