Create a kitchen to boost your home’s value2 min read

Boosting our home’s value is something that we all want to do. With the kitchen being the heart of the home and a room that performs most tasks it can be 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.

One of the most important parts of designing a kitchen is choosing the style that suits the room. You need to make sure it fits within the size, shape and style of the room, as well as throughout the property. Modern styles maybe your taste, but it won’t look right in a period style home. With a modern kitchen, the style will complement a state-of-the-art home and a traditional kitchen style will complement a period, country-style home.

Choosing the most functional layout for your space is worth talking to a kitchen designer, they will be able to get the most out of your space. A multi-functional kitchen today works well in today’s life. Workspace is essential to create those tasty dishes and to be able to prep, wash and clean. A kitchen triangle works well with the three main areas (sink, hob, fridge) in three points of the kitchen, this allows for you to move between the appliances at ease and with minimal effort.

When designing a kitchen you need to think about the budget. A good way to start is roughly knowing what your property is worth. For instance, if your house was worth more than £500k, you wouldn’t purchase a cheap kitchen from say IKEA.

Looking at neutral colours are a great starting point. They go with practically anything and can make the space appear bigger.

Installing modern appliances from well-known brands will add luxury to the kitchen space, as well as knowing you won’t need to replace them anytime soon. Look for energy-efficient appliances too to keep the costs down in your home. Fridges and freezers with an A+++ specification are worth investing in.
