4. A Kitchen Facelift
It’s true that a kitchen is the heart of every home, which is why many potential home buyers prioritize it over other rooms. If you update every other room to be clean and appealing, then spruce up your kitchen with low-cost cosmetic upgrades, more potential buyers will be encouraged to buy your house and the selling price will be higher.
A complete renovation of your kitchen sounds like a good idea, but the flip side of such a project is that it’s expensive and doesn’t guarantee reasonable returns.
However, with just a few dollars, you can carry out the following upgrades and still get the best resale value.
Paint – Baseboards, kitchen cabinets, trim, moldings, and entryways are among the few kitchen areas that often require a fresh coat of paint to keep the kitchen glowing. Earlier on, we saw that blue kitchens tend to deliver relatively excellent results, so when you select a paint color, have that in mind.
Depersonalize – If you have personal photographs, political or religious décor, memorabilia, artwork, and the like, it’s best to remove them so as to give prospective buyers touring the property a chance to envision their own lives in your home.
Replace old kitchen appliances – Replacing dated dishwashers, microwave ovens, humidifiers, and an air conditioner(s) is one way to give your kitchen a fresh look and make it look more functional.
Clean the countertops – Examine your countertop for cracks, nicks, grout issues, etc., and if present, perform the necessary action(s) to fix the issue. Sand and oil it to get rid of butcher block. Clean it and clear it off if need be. However, in the event you have to replace the countertops, granite is one of the greatest option to take into consideration?
Other inexpensive updates you might want to consider include sprucing up the backsplash by adding tiles that complement the theme of your kitchen and swapping outdated cabinet pulls and drawers with new ones.
