Are you ready to starting putting money into your home to increase its value? One way to do that is to redo the kitchen to make it modern and efficient. The best part is that your get to make the kitchen perfect for you and at the same time it will make your home more valuable. First, I would recommend looking at your floors. If they are not tile or hardwood, switching to those materials will dramatically increase your value of your house because they are more popular floors. Second you will want to go to a cabinet store and pick out some great cabinets that will make the kitchen look wonderful. The most popular type of cabinets are solid wood cabinets, so I would consider getting those to maximize your value. Additionally, they usually look great. Finally, you will have to pick your counter top surface. Many people go with a synthetic type surface, but I would not recommend that because it can scratch easily. Others select tile, but I really don’t like those because they are hard to clean. The surface has the grout lines where food and grease can get stuck. The best, and unfortunately most expensive, if a granite counter top. They are beautiful, durable, and last forever.
Overall getting a new kitchen is great because it will make your cooking and cleaning experience easier. Having everything in the right spot will result in much more efficient use of time in the kitchen. Also, it will revitalize your house and immediately increase it’s value. One final benefit is that many of these home improvement expenditures can be tax deductible because they are an investment on property. You should check with an accountant on the tax nature of these expenses. Good luck making your new kitchen and increasing the value of your home.
