How to Get the Most ROI from Your Kitchen Remodel

September 26, 2018|KITCHEN

Did you know the kitchen often nets the most ROI in relation to other areas of the home? When you update the style and function of the space, it makes it more attractive to potential buyers. 

5 popular trends with great returns:

1) Smart technology - updating with the latest technological appliances allows individuals to control them from their smartphones and devices. Imagine a refrigerator that tells you when you’re running out of milk, an oven that preheats on your commute home and a dishwasher that alerts you when there’s a leak. It’s all within reach and can save you time.

2) Open-space concepts - Consider removing some or all of the upper cabinets and store dishes, food and other items at eye-level. Utilize more efficient storage solutions in the base cabinets and outfit tall wall cabinets with pullout storage so you can easily view and access the items you need.

3. Touch technology - Activate the faucet with your elbow or the back of your hand when your hands are full or dirty.  Touch technology streamlines meal preparation, makes it easier to keep your sink and faucet clean and helps ensure safer food preparation.

4. Comfortable gathering space - Creating a comfortable seating area encourages family to hang out together while dinner is cooking. Kids can do homework and your friends can socialize during parties.

5. Purposeful lighting - Take your lighting to the next level by illuminating the interiors or undersides of your cabinets. Cabinet and under cabinet lighting combine function and style to add an element of sophistication to your remodeled kitchen.
