How a Kitchen Renovation Can Increase the Value of Your House

Looking to increase the value of your home while relishing in the improvements? A kitchen renovation in Toronto can not only boost the aesthetics of a house but can send your property value soar.

Whether you are planning to make a move this year or considering selling your home down the road, focusing your renovation on the kitchen area can only prove fruitful. The kitchen is often referred to as the center of the home. This is where the family gathers to start and end the day, friends are entertained, and tales of the day’s activities are shared.

From expanding storage areas to new appliances, a kitchen renovation has endless scenarios to make your kitchen new and bright. Use this opportunity to rebuild the kitchen of your dreams!

Kitchen Remodelling

Does a Kitchen Add Value to a House?

In the housing market, every inch of a house is taken into consideration by the buyer. The kitchen is one of the more focused and popular rooms within any home.

For those homeowners selling quickly, a kitchen renovation increases the value received in the sale. Those who are planning to remain in the home will recoup a smaller percentage at the time of the house sale but will also be able to enjoy a kitchen customized to their needs.

If it has been a while since you were looking at homes to buy, watch a few of the home shows online. You will notice one of the major assets home buyers are looking for is the size, aesthetics, and functionality of the kitchen.

Key Kitchen Updates That Add Value

The intention for the kitchen renovation may have a bearing on the design and refurbishment itself. If the homeowner plans to sell in the foreseeable future, consider using neutral and solid colors. Otherwise, the renovation should reflect the tastes and needs of the occupants.

Regardless of the timing of the sale, there are several areas of kitchen renovation to concentrate on. Installing new appliances, sinks, faucets, and an island may be only the first steps in the renovation. Today’s market provides products that combine functionality and beauty.

Updating Your Kitchen Countertops

Kitchen countertops are not to be overlooked with any kitchen renovation. At first glance, the countertop can tell the story of a kitchen. This is where family meals and countless baking lessons are designed with love and care.

Not only does a countertop needs to be durable and functional, but it can also be a focal point of the entire kitchen. Consider using granite, quartz, or porcelain to create the kitchen of your dreams.

Modernizing the Tile Backsplash

Another focal point of a kitchen can be the wall backsplash. This area of the room can undergo severe stress from food splashes and hot stove temperatures. It should be as durable as it is stunning!

The right backsplash can present a streamlined kitchen or can be as exuberant as the homeowner. Modern choices offer patterns, vibrant colors, and resilient materials such as stone, ceramic, and glass.

Swapping Out Your Hardware

The hardware on the kitchen cabinets undergoes significant wear and tear that can cause handles to look old and dingy. When doing a kitchen renovating, updating hardware is another way to add value to the kitchen itself. Match the room aesthetics with bars, knobs, cut-outs, and levers. The coloring and material used may complement the finish of the new faucets.

Updating Your Lighting

Depending on the theme, the lighting fixtures should create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The lighting can highlight the colors and texture of the countertop, appliances, flooring, and walls of the kitchen. From ceiling light fixtures to underneath cabinet lighting, the lighting helps to showcase the kitchen.
