The key to getting a high return on investment from a kitchen remodel is to choose features that add value and are also desirable to buyers. Select features that are important to you as well. Enjoy them first, and when the time comes to sell the home, these features will boost your resale value.
Budget-Maximizing Kitchen Remodel Projects
1. New Flooring
Beautiful new flooring will transform the appearance of your entire kitchen. Generally, hardwood flooring tends to provide the highest resale value. Buyers love to see a hardwood floor, and they’re willing to pay extra for it. As a bonus, you’ll be able to enjoy these beautiful and functional floors every day.
2. Upgrade & Expand Countertops
Quartz and granite are functional and aesthetic countertop materials that hold their value well. Make sure that you have plenty of space for preparing and serving food. If you don’t currently have enough, expand it by adding an island or building a new cabinet and countertop workstation in a corner of your kitchen.
3. Create an Open Layout
Open floor plans have become the standard for homes. One essential way to open up your layout during your kitchen remodel is to create a great room. Take down any walls if you need to, then create a natural, yet unobtrusive, barrier between the cooking and living area by installing a large kitchen island. Include barstool seating at the island to create a natural gathering and hangout space.
