Want your redesigned kitchen to add value to your property? Then make sure you take our advice!
It’s common knowledge that when a home is on the market, it will be judged most harshly on its kitchen. It’s an area we spend the most time in, so a poorly designed kitchen can cause untold amounts of frustration for all those using it. If you want to increase your home’s value, then redesigning your kitchen would be a good place to start. However, the last thing that you want to do is to spend thousands on something that only adds hundreds to your home’s asking price. If you want your redesigned kitchen to add real financial value, then take our advice.
The value of your kitchen should always remain proportional to the value of your property. We don’t recommend spending over 2% of your home’s total value on kitchen redesign. A designer that uses locally sourced products and labour should be able to work within this budget.
Your kitchen design should flow well with your home’s overall style. A modern and minimalist kitchen will not fit in with a traditional farm style home. The same goes for dramatic colours and textures. Stick to neutrals wherever possible.
Practicality is the order of the day. Ensure that your kitchen is well lit from all angles and that it has ample, convenient storage options (for a larger kitchen you could even implement an island). Pay careful attention to the all-important ‘kitchen triangle’ by ensuring your fridge area, cooking area and sink area are within easy reach of each other at all times. Make sure your designer is working with reputable suppliers so that you know the quality of your kitchen will be high.
If this all sounds overwhelming, don’t worry about it. Remember that all you need to do is contact Kitchen Designs Melbourne to assist you with your kitchen redesign process from start to finish.
