TIPS ON PREPPING FOR RESALE THROUGH A KITCHEN REMODEL
Before you put your house on the market, you should definitely remodel your kitchen. Upgrading your kitchen will ensure that the resale of the value of the house increases significantly. In addition, it will ensure that your house sells faster once you list it on the market. GBC Kitchen and Bath has some creative ideas on how to remodel your kitchen in order to prepare your house for resale.
Repaint your cabinets
One of the first things that customers will notice when they enter the kitchen is the cabinets. Thus, it is imperative that you re-paint them to give them a newer, modern look. You can repaint the cabinets yourself to reduce the cost of the remodel. However, if you feel inadequate at this then you should hire a professional painter. When repainting the cabinets, GBC Kitchen and Bath recommends that, you stay away from dark hues or colorful tones. Go instead for white that has a broad appeal among potential buyers.
Upgrade the lighting
Get rid of any broken bulbs or ones that seem to be dimming out. Accentuate your lighting to make the kitchen more inviting and open. Furthermore, if you have lamps or pendant lights, renovate them so that they are appealing to potential buyers. To brighten up the kitchen, add appropriate under cabinet lighting.
Get a backsplash
You might be having an outdated backsplash, and this is the most appropriate time to replace it. Mosaic or travertine backsplashes can make quite an impression on potential buyers. You can also choose to incorporate a tasteful blend of tile and glass, or simply go with a glass mosaic. All these designs are bound to appeal to the buyer, and go a long way in helping you seal the deal. To maximize your return on investment, purchase cheaper backsplashes, but ensure they are still creative and can leave a good impression on the beholder.
