No one wants to make a huge investment in their home when they plan to list it for sale in the near future. However, there are some things you can do that are fast, inexpensive, and can not only help your home to sell for more money but could also help your home sell faster. Today you will see a few tips for sellers who might need to improve on their kitchen. Remember to call Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at (310) 373-0021 for help buying or selling a home.
Upgrade Your Cabinets the Easy Way
No, we are not suggesting that you necessarily rip out your cabinets and have new ones installed. Instead, consider a cosmetic change like cabinet refacing. This involves taking off the doors, drawers, and hardware, and covering them all in a new veneer. If the layout of your kitchen works well but your cabinets look a little worse for wear, this is the perfect way to get an upgraded look with minimal cost and inconvenience. If you would like an even more affordable option, consider painting the cabinets.
Install a New Backsplash
People are often shocked to see how much of a difference a new backsplash can make in a kitchen. No matter what your personal style is, you will want to choose a timeless option that looks great with your cabinet and would appeal to most people. For example, you do not want to choose a trendy bright color. White subway tiles are a great example of a very popular, timeless option that remained popular for decades.
Buy a Premade Countertop to Add Surface Area
Many home buyers list the kitchen as the most important room in a house. If you have a large kitchen area but not enough counter space, consider buying an affordable pre-made countertop that you can add to a simple island. This requires minimal work, is affordable, and can have a huge impact on how much they will spend for your home. Choose granite at the lower end of its price range, or choose a cool option in Formica.
If you have a more modern kitchen and do not think that an island would fit in, consider buying a commercial, stainless-steel food prep table. Just call your local restaurant supply company and they can likely help you. Our advice is to maintain at least three feet of space between your cabinets and the island to make sure the room is not too cluttered.
