A well-designed kitchen can add a huge amount of appeal to a potential buyer and is arguably the most important room of the house, being the heart of the home and often the space that we entertain in. It goes without saying then that a kitchen renovation could really boost your property’s worth, but what specific features will add the most value to your home? Let’s look at the most important elements of your kitchen renovation in Perth to maximise your home’s value and potential.
When designing and planning for your new kitchen, it’s important to take into consideration not just your immediate needs, but also your potential future needs. It can be helpful to also look at the design from the perspective of someone else who might buy and live in the home – making sure that you haven’t made a space so unique that it’s only suitable to your individual needs, particularly important if you are looking to sell the property in the future.
When it comes to adding value to your kitchen renovation, we believe the most important feature is ensuring adequate and modern storage solutions. Ensuring the right combination of overhead cabinetry, cupboards, and drawer solutions will make sure your storage requirements are adequate and items are easily retrieved – nothing worse than having to hunt around in the dark depths of a cupboard to look for that spice jar! Innovative storage solutions such as pull-out pantries, pull-out corner solutions for those tricky spaces and hidden waste units are all modern touches that will add value to your kitchen renovation in Perth. Ensuring adequate and accessible storage will also future-proof your kitchen for potential future buyers.
Of equal importance to modern storage solutions is a high-quality, durable and timeless benchtop. Engineered stone benchtops are a great choice for the modern kitchen, with their durability and hardiness able to withstand entertaining for large groups (even the occasional red wine spill!) and everyday family use. Providing a more consistent look and a denser product than natural stone, you can be confident that an engineered stone benchtop will last the distance, continuing to add value to your home into the future.
When it comes to adding value to your kitchen renovation, another essential element is to install high quality, energy efficient and innovative appliances, such as your oven, cooktop and dishwasher. Options are plentiful, with continuing advances in technology designed not only to save energy, but also to automate certain cooking tasks and make life easier for the modern at-home chef. Integrating your appliances into the cabinetry is another great kitchen renovation idea for a sleek and clean look. It’s important to look for quality and reputable appliance brands, such as Miele, Asko, Liebherr and Neff, offering after-sales care and warranty periods to ensure your peace of mind. Choosing quality appliances over the cheaper products will go a long way to adding value to your kitchen.
Finally, a fantastic splashback can be a great value-add and a point of difference to your kitchen, giving it a unique and individual look and standing out from the pack. Whether you’d like your splashback to make a statement with a bold colour, or blend in effortlessly with your colour palette, the options are endless. Choosing a durable and easy to clean splashback option such as glass will add value and won’t break the bank, with the added bonus of being a timeless selection.
