4 Creative Kitchen Designs That Improve Your Home’s Worth
If you are looking to increase your home’s resale value, look no further than your kitchen. Real estate experts around the nation have long agreed that a beautiful kitchen remodel can greatly improve your resale value and marketability, often by as much as $20,000. Yet, to attract the right buyers, you’ll need the right design. Depending on your budget, remodeling your kitchen with new appliances, an open-concept dining area, or simply adding open cabinets and shelving can make your kitchen a cozier and more sellable space.
In this quick guide, we’ll introduce three of the hottest kitchen design trends of 2023 to help you with your kitchen remodel and increase your home’s value when you’re ready to sell.
Ensuite Dining Areas Encourage Entertaining
As we reach the end of the COVID-19 pandemic, at-home entertaining has come back into vogue and people want to spend as much time together as possible. This means cooking and eating together at home in the kitchen, rather than dividing people up into separate rooms. As you start planning your kitchen remodel, keep this in mind. By opening the space and incorporating a dining area into the kitchen, you democratize the space, encourage communication, and allow participation throughout the entire process of creating and enjoying a meal. Of course, this will depend on the amount of available space in your kitchen but, if possible, an ensuite dining area will greatly increase the marketability of your home’s kitchen.
Invest in High-Quality Appliances
It’s safe to say that most people took up baking or some form of cooking during the lockdown periods of the pandemic. Whether it was to pass the time, to have something to do, or simply because we were all stuck at home with nothing else to do, many of us found ourselves in the kitchen more often than usual.
This newfound love of cooking has led to a renewed interest in high-quality appliances.No longer are people satisfied with a basic refrigerator and stove. Now, people want the best of the best when it comes to their kitchen appliances. If you are planning on remodeling your kitchen in 2022, consider investing in high-end appliances. Not only will this make your kitchen more enjoyable to cook in, but it will also increase the resale value of your home.
Create a Focal Point
A kitchen is not a kitchen without a focal point. The focal point is the first thing that your guests will see when they enter the room and, as such, it should be something that is both visually appealing and functional. A popular trend in kitchen design is to create a focal point around the range hood. By installing a range hood that is both beautiful and functional, you can create a stunning focal point in your kitchen that will also serve a purpose. Another popular trend is to use the backsplash as a focal point. By choosing a backsplash that is both eye-catching and unique, you can create a focal point that will make your kitchen stand out from the rest. Your Zillow or Redfin estimates can increase as you continue to remodel your home. Consider using encaustic tiles or a slab of highly textured stone such as marble or granite to add flair and personality.
Open Shelving Showcases Your Finer Dishes
If you are looking for another way to add a bit of personality to your kitchen, consider installing open shelving. Open shelving is a great way to showcase your finer dishes and glassware, as well as to add a bit of storage to your kitchen. And, when installed correctly, open shelving can make your kitchen feel larger and more open. However, it is important to keep in mind that open shelving can also make your kitchen feel cluttered if not done correctly. So, be sure to consult with a kitchen designer or remodeler to ensure that your open shelving is installed and spaced in a way that complements the overall design of your kitchen.
They say that the kitchen is the heart of a home so, by improving your kitchen’s design, you can better showcase the love and soul of your property. In time, this will translate to potential buyers when you’re ready to sell and help to increase the overall value of your home. Just be sure to use quality materials and consult a designer if you’re unsure where to go.
