Remodeling Your Kitchen Boosts Value and Enjoyment

Remodeling your kitchen from old and drab to fresh and new helps your home sell faster while also increasing the value of your home. So that’s why homeowners in San Diego county who are looking to sell may benefit from updating or remodeling their out-of-date kitchen. Keeping a home modern and stylish not only makes the home more desirable to buyers for a faster sale, but it can also increase both the monetary and personal value of the home.

Often times, the kitchen is the first room of choice for remodeling. A kitchen is frequently more than just a space to prepare meals; it is a place that family and friends share conversation and spend time together. Out of date kitchens frequently lack space utilization, style and modern appliances.

Galley Kitchen vs. Open Concept

Remodeling Your Kitchen Before and After

Older homes tend to have a kitchen that is closed off from the rest of the living space; also known as a galley kitchen. Opening the kitchen to other rooms along with increasing natural lighting of the house helps the area seem more spacious- which is a bonus to a potential buyer. Designing an open concept kitchen with traffic flow and functionality in mind are important. Installing an island, bar or a second sink are all improvements that can increase user satisfaction and boost the sale price of your home.

For those that are avid cooks, storage space for all of their pots, pans, and other utensils is at a premium. In fact, older kitchens tend to lack extra storage space. So adding more cabinets and perhaps pantry space, and pot racks, are popular storage space improvements.

Speaking of cabinets, kitchens with old cabinets can sway potential home buyers away. Replacing out dated cabinets with beautiful hardwood cabinets can significantly increase the value of your home. Similarly, updating countertops to granite or a similar nice stone can renew your entire kitchen. Complimentary new flooring will complete the new look and add maximum value.
