Often times, we’re asked by homeowners which renovations or remodeling projects will yield a high return on their investment. Most often than not, our answer is always the kitchen. The kitchen is, after all, the heart of the home. From daily use for cooking and eating to entertaining, a great amount of time is spent in our kitchens. It’s one place that is used most often by everyone in the family.
Why Update the Kitchen
There’s a variety of reasons to upgrade your kitchen, but you may be asking, why this room and not somewhere else? Although renovating other areas in your home are still of importance, when dreaming up your next renovation, think about the areas that are often overlooked for updates, but can be valuable not only for those that live in the home but for those that might visually see it.
Our kitchens offer us incredible amounts of comfort as well as functionality, so it’s no wonder that potential home buyers and renters alike scrutinize kitchen spaces. Whether you’re looking to bring value to your home in a future market, or are simply ready to make your kitchen with your lifestyle rather than against it, a positive ROI is a factor that is always at the forefront of our mind.
Do Kitchen Renovations Have a High Return on Investment?
It’s no surprise that an updated kitchen is likely to boost the value of your home, but you don’t have to resort to styles and design trends that create “value” but don’t bring you joy when using the space. The fact of the matter is, even the smallest renovations in the kitchen are bound to bring a turn.
There’s a delicate balance in creating the aesthetic and feel you desire from your kitchen space while renovating with design elements that won’t grow tired or outdated within a year. Kitchen remodels should not only update the look of your space but bring forward design and layout that promotes functionality when you use it and how you and your family prefer to live. Understanding the form, function, and significance of an ideal layout are critical points to consider when you are thinking about making an update to your kitchen. It’s these three critical components that add significant value to the space—unlike finishes in any space—these details cannot be changed as easily as a coat of paint on the cabinets or walls. A kitchen renovation done well should last for many decades and generations to come.
Trusting a Design Team with Your Kitchen Remodel (Working with the right design team to help you design your next kitchen)
Of course, major renovations will increase the value of any home, but the return on investment may be seen in a smaller gap. Major remodels, including replacing major appliances and remodeling layouts should be made for personal reasons rather than purely financial ones. To make sure that you’re making the most out of your investment and getting exactly what you’re dreaming up, it’s essential to collaborate with a designer that not only cares about implementing inspiring designs but make sure that family usage is taken into account at all times. The design team at Euro Design Build not only makes sure to keep your kitchen the heart of the home, but will help evaluate the cost versus value.
