Whether it’s a simple refresh or a big-ticket renovation, making improvements to your kitchen can be a smart move. Here are a few ways to add major value to your kitchen now.
Add an Island
If you have space, add a hardworking island or mobile workstation. It’s the perfect spot for a family cook-off or homework help.
A fresh coat of paint and new hardware in a classic finish can give your kitchen and cabinets an entirely new look. Make sure your cabinets are properly cleaned and sanded prior to painting to ensure a durable finish.
Swap Out Lighting
Hang pendants above a breakfast bar or kitchen island for added task lighting. There are lots of stylish, affordable options available. A good rule of thumb for size: The bigger your island, the larger your fixture should be.
An updated faucet with high-tech features or an integrated sprayer looks good and makes cleaning up after meals a whole lot easier.
Do an Appliance Check
Make sure your current appliances are in good working order. If they can’t be repaired, then replace them. It’ll not only add value but cut down on your day-to-day frustration in the kitchen.
