If you are planning to sell your home, remodelling to make it more functional for the new owners can help you get a higher sale price. Many, however, are mistaken in believing that you must do major remodels to get a greater return on their investment. But in most instances, homeowners who take on large renovation projects before selling do not recoup all the money they spend. Therefore, to maximize your return, consider updates that will improve functionality without breaking the bank.
If you are looking for a simple way to make your home more appealing to potential buyers, you should start in the heart of the home—the kitchen. One cost-effective way to update your kitchen is by replacing your old cupboards with custom kitchen cabinets.
Here are some kitchen cabinet design tips that will help you attract the most buyers:
1. Choose quality
Everyone wants maximum storage in the kitchen, but the number of cabinets you have is far less critical than the quality. Buyers will be looking for cabinets that will be maintenance-free for a long time and that is why you should opt for cabinets made from durable materials. Ensure you choose quality hardware as well. For added style, consider touches such as black or gold knobs and pulls for your cabinets and drawers.
2. Pick the right cabinet colours
For a timeless look that will appeal to buyers, you should consider white cabinets. Although white cabinets are not the boldest design choice, they have mass appeal. White cabinets can also make your kitchen appear more spacious. While you could go for a more upscale look with cabinet colours such as black, you should note that darker cabinets will make your kitchen feel smaller and bold colours do not appeal to many buyers.
3. Consider cabinet height
Do not make the mistake of installing short cabinets. If your cabinets are not flush to the ceiling, that will only leave more space to collect dust or clutter. Eliminate wasted space by ensuring your cabinets are the right height.
4. Choose symmetry
When a potential buyer walks into your kitchen, they will find it more attractive if your cabinets are symmetrical. So, to have a more consistent look, avoid installing cabinets and drawers in varying sizes.
