Boosting your Homes Value with a Kitchen3 min read

How can a kitchen add value to your property?

The kitchen is the hub of the home and can be used as a perfect mix of stylish and functional. If you know that you might not be staying in your current property forever, you may want to consider how much potential value your kitchen makeover will add to your home. You may not be moving at all but you may still want to add value.

Choosing a style that suits the room

Choosing a style is one of the most important parts of when it comes to designing your kitchen. It has to fit in with the size, shape and style of the room. Modern mod cons may be your type of appliance but it may not fit in with a period-style home, keep it complementary. A modern kitchen will complement a state of the art home and a traditional one will look perfect in a period, country-style home.

Choosing the layout

At this stage, the kitchen designer will really come in handy as they will help you decide on the best layout for the space available. A multi-functional kitchen is the way of living today, moving from each appliance at ease and minimal effort. Counter space is important, so you want to make sure you have plenty of them, to create tasty dishes and prep, wash and clean comfortably. The kitchen designer has lots of experience in this so don’t be afraid you are in good hands.


You want to roughly know what the value is of your property when it comes to designing the kitchen. You don’t want to purchase a cheap kitchen if your home is worth £500k plus, and on the other hand if your property is at a lower value you don’t want to overdo it on a really expensive kitchen. This type of installation you wouldn’t be able to recoup the costs, so be realistic on your budget and focus on those pound signs.

Neutral colours

Neutral colours practically go with anything. They can liven up a space and make it appear bigger, for example, if the kitchen is small.

Modern appliances

Opt for recognisable appliance brands, they look great in newly renovated kitchens as well as knowing they won’t need to be replaced anytime soon.


Look for energy-efficient appliances to keep running costs down. Fridges and freezers on the market today are A+++ rated which are definitely worth investing in.

Perfect lighting

Lighting is one of the main factors in the design of the kitchen. It is very important as you need the perfect lighting to be able to perform everyday tasks. Flood the kitchen with as much natural light as possible and add ambience, task and accent lighting.

Luxury features

Think about each luxury feature you want to add to your hub of the home. Your worktops are a luxury feature and you have come to the right place! Add a granite or quartz worktop to finish off your cabinetry. It will provide you with long-lasting durability and style, as well as provide the ideal multi-functional kitchen for all the family.

Dress the space with accessories, colour and statement.
