What Adds the Most Value to a Kitchen Remodel?

As we’ve said before, there are many reasons you might want to remodel your kitchen. Perhaps you need more space as your family grows. Perhaps you need different functionality as your family’s cooking/baking skills have changed. Perhaps you need a new look as styles have shifted.

No matter the reason, though, everyone has one goal in common: to increase the value of your kitchen. True, increasing your home’s resale might not be your main objective. You may not think you will ever sell. But still, let’s be honest: no one hopes to spend money on a kitchen remodel and find that it barely impacts the home’s worth.

However, reflecting on this objective raises some important questions. What gives the most bang for your buck? What are the top kitchen upgrades, the ones that most add value to your kitchen? Can I make meaningful changes to my kitchen and still keep costs down? 

We are here to answer these questions for you. That way, you are prepared as you sit down to make your plan based on your space and your budget.

So whether you’re just touching up a few things or doing a complete renovation, these are the top 6 renovations that add value to your kitchen.

The Best Kitchen Countertops For Your Kitchen (And How to Choose)

People decide to remodel their kitchens for many different reasons. Some do so to up the resale value of their home. Others do so because their current kitchen simply does not meet their needs any longer. And of course, many people remodel because they find their current kitchen…well, unattractive, to use a kinder term.

No matter your reasoning, if you are renovating your kitchen, you know that there are many important decisions to make. These decisions range from the literally big (which refrigerator style should we get?) to the literally small (which cabinet hinges look best?)

One of the most important decisions you make when you remodel your kitchen, though, is which type of countertop to use. After all, the countertop often takes up the most space in the entire room. Plus, it is usually right at eye level. But, you need the countertop to be functional as well.

So, which is the best kitchen countertop material for you? Check out our guide below. That way, you can choose the one that is right for you.

Kitchen Backsplash Ideas with White Cabinets in 2023

Why do people choose white cabinets?  Well, if you are remodeling your kitchen—or even thinking about it—you might already have the answer. They are sleek and stylish, just about guaranteed to stay in vogue for decades. Psychologically speaking, the human brain associates the color white with being clean and bright. The color white also makes a room feel larger. As a result, white cabinets just feel naturally open, warm, and inviting to us.

Another advantage to white cabinets is that they are, in many ways, a blank canvas. White cabinets can go with almost any design. You can easily play with other colors and textures, and they will still look great with white cabinets.

Of course, such a blank canvas can also make all of the backsplash ideas for a kitchen with white cabinets feel overwhelming. If this is you, don’t worry. Read our guide below to help you come up with the right design for you.

How Much Will A Basement Suite Add To The Resale Of My Home?
