Easy ways to add value to your kitchen
At the heart of every home, is the kitchen. In our modern-day lives, it has become more than just a space to prepare food.
Nowadays, the kitchen is a versatile hub for entertaining guests, overseeing school homework, hosting zoom meetings or simply enjoying your morning ritual.
With so much time spent in the kitchen, it’s easy to see why modern designs are focussed on creating open, functional and calming spaces.
While a complete kitchen renovation can be costly, there are some simple ways you can add value without breaking the bank.
The following are the areas of the kitchen we would focus on upgrading, so you can enhance the centre of your home and add value to your property.
Sanding back and painting the cabinets in a light, neutral colour will rejuvenate dated cabinetry without the expense of replacing them. We often consider refreshing the kitchen cabinets before putting a home on the market for sale.
Alternatively, embrace the original style and modernise the design with contemporary colours just like this country-style kitchen in Kenmore.
With the cabinetry looking fresh, another inexpensive way to add value to your kitchen is to update the handles and tapware.
They may seem insignificant, but these touches can make a big impact on your kitchen’s appearance and style.
In 2020, brass and matt black tapware, as well as oversized drawer handles are on-trend, just like at 40 Orchard Street, Toowong.
Personalise Your Splashback
Add a touch of personality to your kitchen by creating a striking splashback. This area of the kitchen is where you can be a bit bolder with colour, shape or texture.
If you really want to make a statement piece, replace the splashback with a window to flood the kitchen with natural light and capture a beautiful outlook.
Review the condition of the kitchen bench and if necessary, consider replacing the benchtop. This is a cost-effective way of instantly increasing the appeal of your kitchen.
At 102 Broseley Road, Toowong, we worked with an industry expert to arrange the replacement of the benchtops before the home was put on the market for sale.
One of the easiest ways of adding value to a kitchen is simply by changing the lighting. Pendant lighting above an island bench or breakfast bar creates a contemporary feel with minimal outlay.
