New Kitchen For Added Sales Punch
Posted by Nick Niesen on November 8th, 2010
If you are going to list your home for sale and want to give it that added punch, why not consider a new kitchen? Kitchens are a great place to start renovating as they are easily the most social room of a home and they also have a great amount of diversity for an expression of style. In addition, this room contains more appliances and counter space than any other room. These appliances can get run down, counter tops can get damaged and stained over the years, the kitchen simply makes sense as a main area to reinvent.
The essence of any new kitchen will likely be the replacement of the major appliances. The stove or range top, dishwasher, sinks, fridge and fixtures. These are the things that you will want to theme your kitchen around. The color of the appliances should of course match, stainless steel is the current favorite. Next try to match your new counter top up with the color of the appliances. Perhaps the most desirable surface being used for counter tops these days in natural granite. However, solid counter tops can get quite expensive. There are more moderately priced options that mimic the look of granite at a fraction of the cost.
While you are at it, you might want to consider redoing the floors too. The most traditional style of flooring for kitchens is a linoleum or vinyl, but these surfaces have lost their dominance of the market in favor of more stylish surfaces like tile or laminate. Tile is a great surface for kitchens as it is highly resistant to wear and is completely waterproof. Also there is a stunning variety of styles and colors to choose from so you can create any look for the kitchen that you can imagine. One simple fact is true, good kitchens sell homes. So don't cut corners when restyling your kitchen.
