Kitchen design is important for everybody. So when it comes to listing your house on the market, it’s no wonder that kitchen interior design is considered a crucial factor across-the-board.

Whether you’re going to be enjoying the new kitchen for yourself or are currently wondering what the possible payback of having a new kitchen could be when listing your home, a kitchen remodel is always worth some consideration.

Here are three simple ways that a new kitchen can elevate your home value.

New Kitchens Speak Volumes

As the centerpiece of your home, your kitchen is the place where you want to illustrate your standard of living.

Guests won’t exactly be touring every room of the house when it’s your turn to entertain, but they’ll almost definitely be spending some time in the kitchen or dining area.

If you have high-quality cabinetry, fixtures and appliances in your kitchen — it’s safe for people to assume the rest of your house has also been updated. On the flip side, if you decide to sell your home, there are few concerns bigger for potential homebuyers than a rushed or rationed kitchen remodel.

“It’ll only take one or two noticeably amateur projects to completely turn off a buyer for fear that you’ve addressed other issues in the house the same way,” according to Southern Living Magazine. “Don’t waste your money on poorly executed ‘improvements’ that only look nice from far away. Buyers will see the lack of quality in an instant and walk away.”

Better Organization

Southern Living Magazine also emphasized another pain of poor kitchen design: clutter.“You may have a solid organization system for anything on your counters or on the walls in your kitchen, but anything that is visible to someone walking through your home will come across as clutter,” according to the article about home remodeling. “Don’t stash all these extra items in your pantry or cabinets, though…that’ll give buyers the impression that they too would quickly max out the available storage space and see your house as too small.”

So, the verdict is in…kitchens are important for selling your home. But don’t only look at the value of a new kitchen when you list it on the market. Better organization will make your everyday life better, too. After all, keeping your kitchen uncluttered is simple when everything has a place.

Dependable Appliances

If your kitchen is lacking some luster, keep in mind that an eye-pleasing kitchen will not just bring more smiling faces to the dinner table, it will more than likely bring more potential buyers for when you decide to sell your home.

According to a survey, 80% of homebuyers placed the kitchen in their list of the top three most important spaces. However, of buyers who bought homes without certain features, 69% of those surveyed said they would have paid more for new kitchen appliances.

There’s not necessarily one type of kitchen that’s the best kitchen for selling a house. But when it comes to appliances, new buyers will definitely peak at the brand name.
