The kitchen is without doubt the most important room in the house. It’s not only the heart of the home where family and friends gather for dinner or social occasions, if you are putting your house on the market your kitchen is usually your entire home’s biggest selling point – or it will be the first room the purchaser will want to ‘do’. It is the one room in the entire house you don’t want to get wrong because nothing screams ‘deal breaker’ like a weary old kitchen!
If you are not in the market for a complete re-design then here are a few tips that will immediately improve and add value to the kitchen.
Replace Appliances – A new fridge, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, cook top or oven will immediately lift the space and be a pleasure to use. There has never been a better time to negotiate a kitchen appliance package from your local white goods retailer.
Replace cupboard doors and Handles – For an immediate visual impact replace cupboard door and drawer fronts. If your joinery is in good condition then a fresh coat of paint might be all they need. Handles will instantly modernise your cupboards with the amazing selection on offer today from rose gold to contemporary powder coated black.
Replace Benchtops – If your cupboards are in reasonable condition consider replacing the benchtop. A beautiful new benchtop is one of the most visible features of your kitchen and with the options available today with engineered stone and stone look granites and marbles you can make a real impact.
Update Lighting – Consider extra task lighting in areas where you are cooking or preparing food. For a modern visual statement hang a pendant light.
Splash back – Updating your splash back will immediately lift and invigorate your space. The options are endless with coloured glass splashbacks, mirror or stainless steel and tiles are always a great and the most affordable option with so much in the marketplace
