1. Brighten Wall Space with Open Shelving
One of the biggest trends within the past few years is open shelving. Open shelves in your kitchen are an easy way to incorporate aesthetically pleasing glassware displays. Removing closed off cabinetry and replacing it with slip-resistant floating shelves allows for modern accents such as live plants or colorful cookware to impress guests. The exposed wall space permits creative homeowners to introduce colorful tile or wallpaper for an added design twist.
2. Smart Appliances Are a Worthy Upgrade
Technology rarely moves backward. The hottest must-have appliances are ‘smart’ appliances. Samsung carries a line of refrigerators that have cameras inside them so you can view what groceries are needed from your smartphone. There are touchless faucets for hygienic hand washing or dishwashers that adjust the water used to what’s being washed. No matter what appliances you choose to upgrade, they’re guaranteed to have a high perceived value with buyers!
3. Conceal Basic Appliances for a Smooth Aesthetic
Unless you’ve upgraded every appliance for a shiny new smart option your kitchen may have some unsightly appliances hanging around. These can be hidden behind or inside cabinets for a seamless look. Many dishwashers can be tucked away with a faux cabinet facade. Even a simple trashcan can get an upgrade if it’s within a cabinet on a lazy Susan! Check with your contractor regarding the dimensions and potential locations before installing any facades.
4. Refinished Kitchen Cabinets Are Just as Good
Replacing cabinets can get expensive. From fancy wood to custom shapes, many cabinet options on the market run in the thousands. If you have cabinets in good condition you may want to check with your kitchen remodeling expert on refinishing them. A quick paint job might be just the ticket for a modern look on a budget – and it’s sure to impress potential buyers!
5. Let the Light In!
Natural light is proven to boost moods! Kitchen windows do double duty: visually brighten the space and air out heat from cooking. If you don’t have a window in your kitchen, consider adding one. The extra light highlights the room’s features If it’s off the table try putting in sun-imitating light bulbs for a similar effect.
