If you are looking to increase the value of your property but only have the budget to update one room, most industry experts will tell you to update your kitchen. Nowadays the kitchen is not just for cooking, it is one of the most functional rooms in the house, therefore a good kitchen is what potential buyers and investors will look for.

If you plan on selling your home in the next five years, when planning your kitchen remodel, you should choose a layout and design which appeals to as most people as possible while keeping costs affordable. Keep the following kitchen elements in mind to make your kitchen the showpiece of your home and increase the value of your property.

If you want to get the most out of a kitchen remodel, choose a layout which allows for a multi-functional space. If you have the space for a kitchen island, keep in mind that they offer a practical and functional design and are well sought after. Increasing the space in your kitchen could mean removing a wall to create an open planned layout and a sense of flow in your home.

Bench Tops
Kitchen bench tops set the tone of the whole kitchen and are the first thing people notice. Choosing a quality finish will make a huge impact on the look of the kitchen and the value of your home. If you can find an affordable option, granite or stone finishes are very durable and give a luxurious and sophisticated feel.

Plenty of storage is not only practical, it gives you the ability to declutter your kitchen and free up bench top space for cooking, working and entertaining. Focus on quality custom cabinetry to optimize your kitchen space and create valuable space for organization. A spacious and organized kitchen will make cooking more enjoyable.

White kitchens are timeless and lighter colours make spaces look larger and more open. Use neutral colour schemes and keep bold patterns to a minimum as not all potential buyers will be a fan of unusual designs. Keep your kitchen style simple, ageless and spacious with clean lines and streamlined designs.
