Kitchens are one of the most important rooms in any home, and it’s where we cook, dine, and sometimes entertain. Therefore, fitting a new kitchen is an essential improvement for your home, whether you’re looking to sell or just trying to add value. While a new kitchen is a big investment, a good quality one will last for many years, and in the competitive Norwich property market it can make a big difference.
Here are some reasons why a new kitchen can add value to your home.
When buyers look around the home, they’re often thinking about the things they’ll need to change. While it’s easy to re-paint a living room or re-design a bedroom, changes such as a new kitchen can seem like a big challenge when they’ve just dealt with the stress of a move. That’s why a new kitchen can add 6% to the value of your home, and means that if you decide to sell, you may get more reasonable offers, as people won’t need to worry about changing it for a few years.
Your kitchen can set the tone for the rest of your home, so it’s one of those spaces where it’s worth investing in quality. For example, here at Grays we are Neff Master Partners and Bosch main dealers. If you are looking at fitted kitchens in Norwich, then it’s worth speaking with our team to see how we can improve your space. Whether it’s by adding new cabinets for a fresher look, or adding high-end appliances with special features.
Updating your home
Homes that are up to date and stylish tend to have a higher value. Whether you live in one of the new flats by the riverside, or a period village property in Methwold or Burnham Market, there will be interior design trends that can update your home, without taking away its charm. Some kitchen trends for 2018 include:
- Dark plum colours
- Appliance garages – these hideaway cupboards free up counter space
- Areas of patterned tile
- Rose gold or copper accents
- Taps which make chilled or boiling water in seconds
A home that’s up to date with the latest trends will seem looked after, and increase its value. By working with specialists in kitchen design in Norwich, you can find out what the latest trends are, and how they can best work with your space and property style.
Gone are the days when kitchens were just for cooking. Many modern homes are now open plan, which means the kitchen, living, and dining areas sit in an open area. This is great for entertaining or socialising, but if the kitchen is dated or not to your style, then it can bring the whole area down. By modernising your kitchen, you improve your home in general.
