How your Kitchen can sell your house for more money

How your Kitchen can sell your house for more money

We recently looked at how your Bathroom can help sell your house but one of the biggest selling points of any house that is set to become a home is the kitchen. For many house buyers the kitchen above all rooms in the house the one that makes them decide to buy or not. Moreover, the kitchen can determine the value of the house as well as drive the offers to purchase made. Getting things right with your kitchen is vital when selling your house and Watford Bathrooms and Kitchens are the people to help you.

Wow the buyers

Nothing dulls the interest of a buyer than an untidy or dirty kitchen.  Your kitchen is the heart of your home and so it will be the heart of the home for a new buyer. Give your kitchen the look it needs to make a buyer happy. Unclutter the kitchen, even if it means hiding things or removing thing temporarily. Give the kitchen a really good clean, remove junk from the fridge door and let the kitchen breathe. Don’t leave things in the sink, remove dead or dying plants from the window. Even if your kitchen is dated making it clean and tidy will add value in the buyer’s mind.

Light up the buyer’s world

One of the best and most affordable ways to make a kitchen sell a home is to change the lighting. Simple and affordable new light fittings can add a whole new dimension to a kitchen and a home. A kitchen will sell the house with the right lighting that is both stylish and functional. A well-lit kitchen becomes an inviting, happy space and this makes buyers feel happy. Consider some under-unit lighting as an affordable and effective way to add more light to a kitchen and for evening viewings to add some atmosphere.

Cupboard Facelift makes a kitchen look new

Tired doors and drawers can make a kitchen lose value on a house. There is often no need to replace an entire kitchen when selling but a few new handles or even replace doors can certainly improve things. Perception is everything and new cupboard doors or just new handles are a really affordable way to add some perceived value to your home with your kitchen.

Make it the heart of the home

Many kitchens in many homes are where people naturally gravitate to and making you kitchen a place to entertain that people will enjoy is a way to have your kitchen sell your home. Adding a centre island, not as expensive as you may imagine, is a trendy way to make your kitchen the heart of your home. Simply adding some barstools can set a buyers mind racing as to how they will entertain their friends and family. Again, it is all about perception.
