The kitchen is the heart of the home, so it’s no surprise that it’s also one of the most important rooms to potential home buyers. According to Consumer Reports, a “modern/updated kitchen” topped the list of ideal home features in a survey of millennial’s, registering as most important to more than a third of respondents. A high quality and professional kitchen remodeling in Northern Virginia is an ideal way to improve the aesthetic and resale value of your kitchen. Here is the list of top 5 reasons to remodel your kitchen.
- Modernization: Cracked tiles, peeling countertops, broken or missing cabinet doors, and outdated appliances are all signs your kitchen needs a major remodeling. Collect some ideas from home improvement websites, magazines, and showrooms; present your wish list or ideas to a professional designer, and work together to upgrade your kitchen to fit your personal style. Since you’ll be spending a good portion of your life in that room, make sure it fits your aesthetics.
- Increase Energy and Water Savings: If your refrigerator is over 25 years old, it takes a tremendous amount of electricity to run it. In fact, kitchens are just chock full of energy-sucking appliances, including microwaves, ovens, stoves, hoods, and dishwashers. If these appliances are over 25 years old, they won’t be stamped with the EPA’s Energy Star seal. Additionally, should one of those vintage appliances break, the cost of repair is high and parts can be hard to find.
- Boost Your Home’s Resale Value: Though it depends on where you live, how much you’ve invested, the details of your renovation, and when you sell, homeowners who renovate their kitchens can often see up to 90% of the cost added onto their home value when it’s done. You’ll also land a sale more quickly, as buyers are picky about kitchens and will almost always choose a home that’s remodeled over one that needs a whole lot of updating.
