The kitchen is one of the most important spaces in any home. The quality of a kitchen can make a property more desirable, and the investments you make in the area have the potential to boost your house price. Here are the top renovations for a return on your investment, no matter what type of home you own.
Custom Designed Kitchens
For the best return and easiest upgrade choose a bespoke, custom-designed kitchen. The potential return can be huge as long as you invest in high-quality materials and contemporary designs. These bespoke kitchens in St Albans are the perfect way to renovate your kitchen while increasing your property value. The kitchen is the centrepiece of any home, and having a stylish and functional kitchen makes your home both desirable as well as more valuable. Materials like live-edge wood, slate, or granite, and thick Victorian-style tiling are all highly sought-after features in contemporary kitchens.
Upgrade Your Appliances
The highest-value assets in your kitchen are its appliances. Ovens, grills, and hobs are usually built into a modern kitchen, and by spending a little more on these appliances you can cover your costs and get a little return on your investment. High-quality, high-tech refrigerators, microwaves, and touches like an air-fryer can all add to your kitchen’s value if they will be included in your home’s sale. Fridges and freezers are a great opportunity and can also be built into a kitchen to secure their value. A dishwasher can cost just a couple of hundred pounds and can more than cover their costs.
Dining Spaces In The Kitchen
Most kitchens are dual-use spaces. Not only are kitchens used today for food preparation and cooking, but casual and even formal meals may be eaten in a kitchen space. Finding some room for a breakfast bar or a dining table if you have the space is a great way to add value, functionality, and versatility to a kitchen. It also adds value. When you are renovating a kitchen, you have the opportunity to make the space more usable, filling it with features that not only have a financial value but also have a value to a family.
Invest In Flooring
The flooring throughout your home contributes to your property value but in the kitchen, it is even more important. A high-quality flooring finish like natural slate or hardwood can be the finishing touch to a bespoke kitchen and can bring some extra value to the space. Choosing stone or slate over wood gives you a natural look with more colour options. Stone floors are hard-wearing, with a sleek and high-quality finish, and will stand the test of time. Spending money on your kitchen floor can give you one of the best returns on investment in this room, and throughout the house.
Combine a few of these smart investments into one renovation and you can cut the cost of labour while making a profitable addition to your home. Having a well-designed, stylish, modern kitchen with high-value appliances makes your property a lot easier to sell too.
