Does A Kitchen Renovation Increase the Value of My Home?
Renovations will have a significant impact on the value of your home, and the kitchen is the heart of your home. According to the Appraisal Institute of Canada, the kitchen is where a renovation will generate the highest return on investment. It is also one of the first places potential homebuyers typically assess when considering a purchase. Does a kitchen renovation truly increase the value of your home?
We will help you understand which types of kitchen renovations increase your home’s value and what upgrades can have the biggest impact. Here are several ways that you can invest in your kitchen to increase the value of your home:
Neutral and Timeless Design
When it comes to design, a bright and light kitchen is desirable and attractive. Selecting light coloured flooring, walls, and cabinets will help make your space look larger and give it a more open feel. A neutral colour palette is easy to work with no matter your decor style and will look good for years to come.
Solid Surface Countertops
Quality countertops are an investment in the overall value of your home and will improve the functionality and appearance of your kitchen. Quartz countertops are sturdy, attractive, and will add to the design of your kitchen. The added benefit of quartz is that it is a sealed product and its finish reduces streaking and fingerprints that often plague counter spaces.
The modern design of open shelves is a great way to increase your home’s value. Open shelving offers ideal spaces to keep frequently used items easily accessible or to add decorative items.
There are countless stylish options for lighting, faucets, handles, and other kitchen fixtures. It’s important to have updated fixtures that integrate with the rest of your kitchen’s style and that will improve the functionality of your space.
Soft-Close Drawers and Doors
When it comes to functionality, soft-close drawers and doors are upgrades that will take your kitchen to the next level. This feature will create a more peaceful kitchen experience and will also reduce the amount of wear and tear that is experienced with drawers and doors slamming against the frames.
Modern Appliances and Kitchen Technologies
Having up-to-date appliances in your kitchen is a surefire way to increase the value of your home. The options for modern appliances are endless and they offer great aesthetic appeal.
