Home renovation projects take shape in various ways. One of the most common, of course, is a remodeled kitchen. Pretty much every room in your home can be modified, renewed, or redone. So what makes kitchens any different from their domestic counterparts? Well, they are one of the most popular undertakings (alongside bathroom remodeling projects) that homeowners can initiate when they want to make a change. Here are some superb ideas!
Upgrade the Existing Appliances
When you put in new appliances, you stand to benefit from them. Not only do you gain additional energy efficiency, but you also make your home more intriguing to potential buyers. That means you can increase your asking price considerably. Top-of-the-line appliances and other amenities such as wine cellars and prep sinks are all the rage in luxury homes. Even though you might not have an unlimited budget, you can still take advantage of these luxuries. Dishwashers and refrigerators cost a pretty penny. Microwaves, toasters, and blenders won’t.
Reevaluate the Lighting Situation
One of the reasons many homeowners decide to renovate their homes is they’re unhappy with the lighting. So, with that in mind, rethink how well-lit your kitchen is. Layered lighting makes a remarkable difference. Pendant lights draw the eye without being too flashy, and under-cabinet lighting adds substance to the style.
Expand the Room with Open Shelving
Do you have a small kitchen? Tiny and cramped spaces like these aren’t conducive to making memories while cooking or baking. So, that means the floor plan needs to be changed. In the meantime, you can apply the optical illusion of a wider room by using open shelving. When your new-look kitchen features open shelves, you can sell your home eleven days sooner than the average (as determined by Zillow, at least). Some other ideas for jazzing up your kitchen include painting the back wall, adding contact paper to the unaltered shelves, and integrating in-cabinet accent lights. Glass doors also help make an interesting impression, too!
Attract New Solutions with Magnets
Forgive the pun. By magnetizing your storage, you can make the most of a unique suggestion. When your spice rack is magnetized, you create a tiny bit of storage space that is still aesthetically pleasing. The same advice goes for setting up a magnetized knife rack. No more worrying about an overburdened sharp knife drawer!
