A kitchen remodel is a great way to add value to your home. People spend a lot of time in their kitchens from cooking meals to entertaining friends and guests. It is a central hub of family life. Is your kitchen looking a little old and worn down? You don’t need a large budget to make remodeling work for you! Here are some easy, inexpensive upgrades that will add some real value to your home.
Your cabinetry is perhaps the most prominent and visible part of your kitchen, so an easy way to bring out its best is to give it a fresh coat of paint. Afterward, you’ll feel as though you have a completely different kitchen! While having the cabinets repainted also ponder changing the hardware – this can change the feel of the kitchen and make it feel more on trend.
Replacing or Adding a Backsplash
The backsplash behind your kitchen sink can look sad and dirty over time. Consider giving it an update! Right now it’s trendy to change existing tile backsplashes to a glass mosaic. But you can also replace your tiles with classic white subway tile, which can make the kitchen feel bigger and brighter to you. This also has a knock-on effect on your home value, making it seem more modern.
Replace the Lighting
Good lighting is key in a kitchen and can really enhance its beauty. If you’re not getting all that you can out of your current lighting setup, consider having new fixtures installed to better cast your kitchen in a positive light. Pendant lights above a countertop or island are popular right now. Or, if you’re happy with your current fixtures, try simply replacing the light bulbs! Experiment with different wattages and lumen outputs and the different types of light bulbs out there and you may be surprised at how different your kitchen will look.
Add a New Kitchen Sink
“Everything but the kitchen sink” shouldn’t necessarily be your remodeling motto! A new sink can really change the feel of your kitchen and adds value to the home overall. Apron-front farmhouse sinks are really nice-looking, but they also give potential buyers the impression that the home is worth more money.
