Moving may be the last thing on your mind when embarking on a kitchen renovation, but it’s important to create a focal point space with strong resale value. The kitchen can make or break a potential home sale. Maximize your kitchen’s resale value with design and paint decisions now, and reap the benefits in the future.

Open Sesame:

An open floor plan is at the top of many homebuyers’ wish lists, especially a kitchen that opens up to a dining room or family room. Take this into account when planning your renovation and eliminate a non-loadbearing wall if your kitchen is cut off from the rest of the home. This element may add some time and expense to your project, but open space is a must-have for many potential buyers.

Keep the Colors Cool:

Homes with kitchens in cool, neutral colors sell for more money, according to real estate website, Zillow. The most popular of these neutral shades is a soft gray-blue. Cabinets should follow suit and be painted in a complementary white or off-white color.

Quality Appliances:

Make an investment in quality appliances while remodeling and they’ll be a great selling feature down the line. Choose appliances in a classic finish like crowd-pleasing stainless steel for a timeless and appealing look. Dated appliances can distract from all other kitchen features, so make the switch now instead of down the line when you list your home.

Storage Space Features:

Consider adding some cabinetry features that provide organized storage options. Pullout drawers for pots and pans, a spice rack cupboard, and pantry space will never go out of style and catch the eye of a potential future buyer. These small touches can go a long way in making an impression.
