How To Cook Up Some Added Value To Your Home: Kitchen Remodel

A kitchen remodel can significantly increase the value of your home if planned carefully. You’ll see up to ten to fifteen percent more during an appraisal if you work with a kitchen builder to bring your vision to life. If you want to know how much of your budget to allow for a remodel, consider spending ten to fifteen percent of what you paid for the property. It’s a safe number to work with that most people can afford.

This figure should be increased if you live in an affluent neighborhood, or your current kitchen lacks some of the most popular features buyers look for. Hiring a professional kitchen builder to work with you to design and build your dream kitchen can help tremendously.

There are many things they can do, from building custom cabinets to installing natural stone countertops to putting in new flooring, a skylight or windows, and even redesigning the entire floor plan using interior design knowledge. Ask, “What will add value to my home?”.

A kitchen remodel takes time and can leave you without a working kitchen temporarily. If you want to expedite the process and ensure that it’s done the right way, hiring a kitchen builder is in your best interest. They can assist with each of the things that can be done to make your kitchen look better and sell for a higher price when listed by a real estate agent.


How Your Kitchen Improves the Overall Look of Your Home

Among two of the best rooms to invest in remodeling are the kitchen and the bathroom. Each increases the value of the home exponentially. There are many ways to make the heart of the property outstanding. Think about how many meals you share in the kitchen with your family and then pick and choose the projects that give you the most bang for your buck.

Let’s start by considering how certain things contribute to the overall appeal of the kitchen and answer the question “How do I add value to my home?”.

Custom Cabinetry

If you have the financial means to do so, investing in custom cabinetry transforms your kitchen instantly. If you don’t have the time or money to tear them out, refacing them helps tremendously. Adding a thin piece of veneer, a new coat of paint, or new handle pulls gives the room an instant facelift.

Walls and Backsplashes

Painting walls can dramatically change their appearance. So can mosaic and subway tiles. Aim for white or lighter colors because they go well with any color the walls are painted and are easier to clean.


Buyers love new appliances. Investing in them can help you get 75 percent of your initial investment back. If the refrigerator, stove, and dishwasher are brand new, high quality, and extra efficient, they can essentially pay for themselves. If you add the cost of the appliances to the asking price of your home, you won’t be out the expense.


Don’t discount the beauty of a new floor. If you install materials that the buyer views as long-lasting, practical, and aesthetically pleasing, you’ll have no issue getting your home sold fast. Some choices that always do well with buyers are porcelain tile, stone tile, luxury vinyl or even engineered wood. Each is great for homes with children and pets in them and can be laid easily.
