If you’re upgrading your home with the idea of increasing its value when you sell, remodeling your kitchen is probably high up on your list. It’s a good choice too, as a mid-range kitchen upgrade can (on average) bring a 98% return on investment, while a higher-end remodel can deliver 91% return on investment, according to HGTV. But how much you get back also depends on where you spend the money. Here are some of the more rewarding upgrades, from the specialists in laminate edging options.
- Countertops: Workspaces are at a premium in a kitchen and having good-looking, high-quality countertops is a big factor in your home’s overall appeal. Granite is a favorite with homeowners and buyers, but it’s still a big expense. High-quality laminate countertops are a happy medium – and you’ll be impressed with what today’s manufacturers can offer.
- Appliances: Great appliances are a fantastic draw for buyers, but be careful not to go overboard. Professional-grade appliances are very expensive and won’t get you the best returns. Rather stick to well-known, quality brands that appeal to a wide range of buyers. Another recommendation is to choose energy-efficient appliances, as that will save you money in the meantime and is very appealing to the market!
- Cabinets: Damaged, neglected or out-of-date cabinets are an immediate turn-off to buyers, so – unless they’re in great shape – upgrading them is always a good idea. This doesn’t necessarily mean replacing them, as a coat of paint can do wonders to good-quality but outdated cabinets. You could also consider putting on new handles or simply replacing the doors and faces of your cabinetry to update their look.
- Colors: A neutral color scheme is a must-have for anyone who wants their kitchen to be a true selling point for their home. Stay away from very bright or dark colors on cabinets, walls, countertops or backsplashes, and avoid busy patterns.
