During recent years, the kitchen has become a major selling point in American homes. If you’re tired of looking at all the same old appliances and cabinets, but don’t have the cash to make any major renovations, This Old House has some advice on a few low-cost changes you can make while improving your home value.
If your cabinets are looking drab, rather than replacing them, you can paint or stain them a refreshing new color, recommends This Old House. This will cost you much less than replacing all of the units, and if you finish the project and are unhappy, you can always give it a second shot with another coat.
Additionally, you may want to consider installing a hanging pot rack, advises the source. This will add an edgy look to your kitchen, while the exposed pots and pans can present an industrial feel. In addition, it can be a great storage solution if you find yourself running out of spare cabinet space.
Meanwhile, sometimes it’s not what you add, but what you take away that can make all the difference in a kitchen, says This Old House. Removing the doors of your upper cabinets can make a kitchen feel more spacious. In addition, you can have some fun with the project by painting the interior of the cabinets a trendy accent color to show off your personality.
Improving your home value is a great way to get the most out of your investment if you ever decide to put your property on the market. Refinancing your home loan with Freedom Mortgage is just one way to free up some extra cash to make those much needed changes to your home.
