Kitchen Remodeling: Improving the Design and Function

Along with the bathroom, your kitchen is another area of the home where a few minor improvements can significantly increase the value.

Check out the following cost efficient ideas for upgrading a kitchen and maximizing your return on investment.

  1. Cabinets– There are many ways to reface old worn-down cabinets, such as replacing the doors with laminates, wood, glass inserts, completely removing some doors, or painting to present a more modern appearance.
  2. Countertops – Kitchen countertop installation is one the most economical methods of increase the value of a kitchen. Instead of a full replacement, a simple refinish is typically about 50 percent cost of complete replacement.
  3. Replace Kitchen Faucet – Install a new elegant, water efficient faucet at the kitchen sink. The right faucet will improve the overall appearance of any kitchen.
  4. Install Light Fixtures– Replace existing light fixtures with new upgraded models. Older light fixtures tend to discolor over time and simply become outdated. Replacing light fixtures is a good return on investment, because of their relatively low cost compared to the costs of other upgrades in a kitchen.
