When you are considering your kitchen upgrade for resale, you might want to start on the areas that need the most love. Most of the time kitchen upgrades includes kitchen cabinets, counter tops, kitchen lighting and even door knobs to the pantry that are old and rusty. You might have laminate flooring that is cracking or peeling. With a kitchen renovation, you will be able to make your kitchen look like-new for potential buyers without spending the money you would for a custom kitchen. Of the more popular stylistic choices, buyers are looking for homes with new granite countertops or something that looks similar. The style of the standard oak cabinets are no longer modern and cabinet refacing might be a better and less expensive option for your kitchen upgrade than a complete cabinet replacement for your kitchen. You can choose cabinet colors from off white to dark-mocha color which seem to be the favored choices as of late. Backsplash and innovative storage solutions are also appreciated by potential homebuyers, as they add uniqueness and style. You can utilize the ever so large internet world to get style ideas and of course refer back to Artistic Kitchens & More once you have a few ideas and share them with us at our first meeting.

To busy and personalized can turn off potential buyers that have a different idea of style and design. Currently, modern-style fixtures for the sinks are popular choices for the bathroom as well as the kitchen, as are white tile for the flooring, though off-white or beige has never really gone out of style. Again, like the kitchen, the oak cabinets are out, so you will want to consider refacing these cabinets to either off white or neutral brown colors, along with granite countertops that are more neutral in nature . With a fresh coat of off white or light tan (in the warm family) paint, new simple and matching light fixtures, you can give this space a facelift, making it more aesthetically pleasing to potential home buyers.
