Remodeling your kitchen will not only improve your lifestyle, but will also significantly increase the value of your house when you decide to sell it. Whether you are looking to add long-term value to your house for yourself and your family or are looking to sell it in the future, the kitchen is the room that increases the value of your home.
According Kermit Baker, Director of the Remodeling Futures Program at Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies, home buyers look first at kitchens and baths. Another research study conducted by Hamptons International shows that 50 per cent of buyers would not even consider purchasing a house with a poorly designed kitchen.
One of the major reasons why buyers look for a well-functioning kitchen is a simple fact that kitchen remodeling is quite expensive. Real estate agents know this fact very well and advise their clients to sell and buy homes with kitchens that are properly designed and are updated with all the latest options.
Clutter is considered a kitchen killer by interior designers, and additional storage is always a big asset. Research shows that one of the top complaints that home buyers have is insufficient storage space in a kitchen. By modernizing your kitchen cabinets, you can easily add extra storage with unique and creative space-saving solutions.
As the showpiece of any house, a kitchen needs to be up-to-date. Modernizing your kitchen today will help you enjoy the comfort of your home and will significantly add to a house’s value if you decide to sell it in the future.
