Kitchens are truly the heart of a home. Out of all rooms you live in, your kitchen needs to function the best. Whether you’re updating your kitchen for yourself, or to increase the value of your home for a future sale, quality is the most important thing.
Select durable and attractive materials like stone counters, hardwood cabinets, and quality brand appliances. Make sure you have ample storage and counter space. Good lighting is important, especially over cooking surfaces such as the sink and food preparation areas.
According to a survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors, 48% of home buyers are willing to pay more for a home with a kitchen island.
