3 Simple Kitchen Designs that Boost Home Value

Being a Paradise Valley homeowner, it is important to stay up on trends, but also keeping a timeless look that will last beyond resale. Kitchens are vital for a homebuyer’s decision making, in fact it is usually the space in the home that can make or break the final decision, so there are some things to do that are going to pay off.


Keep the kitchen simple. The designs should be clean, contemporary, and horizontal (open shelves, long and horizontal pulls, thick countertops). A trend that never fades is a tidy, fresh appearance that will have a broad appeal if selling a home in the future.


Choose colors wisely. Avoid black and white kitchen designs, since they can show every scratch and dirty spots easily. By having dark wood such as mahogany or zebra, it can make an island look like a piece of furniture, while making the rest of the space look timeless.


Another rule of thumb when it comes to kitchen layouts are the appliances. The more open our kitchens get, the more we want them to look like the rest of the house, according to a House Logic article. Try to stay away from the big pro range and stainless steel refrigerator, and start considering  concealed, high-performance replacements. Also, induction cooktops use less electricity and are in growing demand.


Nevertheless, the kitchen is the main focal point of the entire home. When homebuyers are looking at a home the first place they tend to judge is the condition of the area where they plan on spending most of their time. If the kitchen is ready to sell, then the buyers are ready to spend the money.
