Add an Island
How much room do you currently have available in your kitchen? If you space to add on, one of the first major ways to add value to your kitchen is with the addition of an island. Aside from providing the obvious (additional cooking space, a prep sink and more storage), it can also become a mobile station, place for kids to get help with homework or additional dining space for breakfast.
Add a Backsplash
An easy and affordable way to add some new life to your kitchen is by either adding or updating a backsplash. Subway tile, patterned tiles or even ceramic, porcelain or natural stone slabs are easy to DIY over a weekend. When considering adding value to your home for resell purposes, an updated kitchen can help you stand out to prospective buyers, which can help you sell faster and for more money.
When was the last time you made an assessment to your kitchen appliances? If they aren’t in good working order and can’t be repaired, it’s time to replace them. If they are still function but just dated, start by replacing one at a time. When a stained, damaged sink or outdated microwave is replaced with stainless steel, it will do wonders for the overall aesthetic of the room.
