Putting your dollars and cents towards smart kitchen remodeling projects can work well for increasing your home value. Consider the projects you undertake as an investment for your own enjoyment, or to ask for a better selling price when you want to move. Kitchens tend to make or break a successful home sale. There are a couple of things homeowners should be mindful of when planning for value-adding kitchen remodeling projects. Give Bowen Remodeling & Design a call when you’re ready to discuss your kitchen design plans!
A well-thought-out budgeting plan sets the rest of your kitchen remodeling projects up for success. While budgets for different projects will vary, it’s always best to set aside a decent percentage of your funds for unexpected expenses, then another considerable portion for your high-commitment areas. These are items or areas you — or prospective new owner— won’t be wanting to replace as often, like cabinetry, countertops, and heavy appliances. You can speak with a real estate agent or experienced designers in Maryland to determine what is a realistic budget to set aside for kitchen improvements.
Projects to Consider
Cabinets can set the tone for the rest of your kitchen, therefore worn out and dated cabinets should get a little makeover. Refacing your cabinets is a cost-effective method of updating your cabinet style without shelling out for a completely new set and installation. If you notice any other areas that are overdue for improvement, prioritize these projects too. Hardwood floors are ever-coveted for their beauty and prestige. Homeowners can closely mimic the look of wood floors at a fraction of the price with luxury vinyl flooring.
When Selling is Your Goal
Ultimately, increasing your home value is meant to make your home an attractive option to buyers while getting yourself a good return on investment. Kitchen remodeling projects should both meet the standard to appeal to buyers and consider what historically works well in the home real estate market. For those reasons, you need your kitchen remodeling projects to achieve those desirable qualities without going over the top.
The buyer’s taste can very well differ from yours, so your overtly custom designs may not appeal to some. What’s more, your remodeling efforts should aim to bring your kitchen to a pleasant but overall base-level state that reflects the surrounding neighborhood. By not doing so, you could be discouraging buyers who either can’t afford your home or those who would rather look in another neighborhood area.
