5 Kitchen Upgrades that Increase Home Value
Have you looked around your kitchen lately and noticed that it's looking a bit outdated and worn? But, you don't want to upgrade your kitchen because of the cost? Not every kitchen remodel project is expensive. Here are five kitchen upgrades that will increase the value of your home without breaking the bank:
Repainting your cabinets can give your kitchen the facelift you were looking for without having to replace all the cabinets. Also, changing the color entirely can make your kitchen feel brand-new.
Estimated Cost = $300
Replace Kitchen Hardware
Changing out the hardware on your kitchen cabinets can change the feel of your kitchen entirely. This hardware change can give your kitchen the modern and trendy look you were wanting. Here is a guide on how to choose the best hardware finish for your home.
Estimated Cost = $250
Add a New Backsplash
For a fresh look, at a low-cost, consider adding or replacing your kitchen backsplash. Popular options include modern glass, mosaic tile, or classic white subway tile. Keeping with neutral tones will make your kitchen feel bigger and brighter.
Estimated Cost = $2,000
Replace the Lights
Light fixtures can add a unique focal point or accent to any room of the home. Consider upgrading your light fixtures in the kitchen to something more stylish. Pendant lights or under-cabinet lighting can give your kitchen the upscale look homebuyers are looking for in a home.
Estimated Cost = $75 to $250
Replace the Countertops
Countertops are one of the most visual aspects of a kitchen, and many homebuyers expect them upgraded. Updated countertops are usually granite, quartz, butcher block, or concrete. If your kitchen has a lot of countertop space, consider going with a cheaper material like butcher-block or concrete. Smaller kitchens, with less countertop space, have the option to go with granite, quartz or marble – only because the expensive cost won't add up as quickly. Another option is to mix your countertop materials. In large kitchens, with a massive center island, consider the following – granite, quartz or marble on surrounding counters with butcher block on the center island.
Estimated Cost: $300+ for concrete countertops
