Don’t have the time or budget for a full kitchen remodel? That doesn’t mean you can’t make improvements here and there. Be a smart homeowner when choosing upgrades. The changes you make to your kitchen should make it more efficient for you, more energy efficient, and add value to your home. Here are the kitchen remodeling activities that can add the most value for the least investment.
New Cabinets and Counters
Depending on the quality and materials used, new cabinets and countertops can get expensive, but they are well worth the investment. Getting new cabinets and counters also means that you have an opportunity to completely change your floor plan. Open kitchens with islands are the most popular, which means that the layout will add the most value to your home.
While you’re changing your floor plan and moving things around, why not replace those old appliances? New appliances can make your kitchen shine, while enticing and inviting you to come to play with your favorite recipes, but they can also save you a lot of money on your utility bills and improve the quality of your food.
Updating your floors can significantly improve your home’s value. Replacing tile and laminate will only moderately increase the value, but other products, such as refinishing or installing hardwood floors, can be expected to give a 100 percent return on your investment. In other words, if you spend $3,000 on your hardwood floors, you’re likely to add $3,000 value to your home.
