Big transformations on a small budget

The typical home buyer wants a move-in ready home. It’s a proven fact that kitchen redecorating will help your  home sell faster for the best possible price. An outdated, worn, and unattractive kitchen will decrease a home’s value and turn buyers away. Minor budget-friendly improvements can transform your kitchen into a buyer’s dream and help to sell your Lakewood Ranch home.

Add Fresh Paint for a Dramatic Change
Fresh paint is the first step in redecorating your kitchen. Picking the right color can make the room look larger. Use neutral colors to provide a broader appeal. Brista Homes, a local builder/remodeler, recently chose Sherwin Williams, Midful Gray — the buyers feedback on the color selections was outstanding . However, some designers claim that green is the new neutral and Benjamin Moore picked Lemon Sorbet as the trendy color of the year. If you want to play it safe, use the Sherwin-Williams “color visualizer” to see the color in your space before you apply it to your walls.

Update Kitchen Cabinet Hardware
If you already have attractive kitchen cabinets in place, updating the old hardware may be all that’s needed to give your kitchen a fresh new look. Home improvement stores offer a wide array of stylish hardware. From stainless steel to hand-forged pewter, there’s a handle or knob for every style.

The Final Touch: Accessorize
Kitchen accessories can be both decorative and functional. Decorative accessories include new rugs, window coverings, and linens that complement your new wall color and tie the room into a cohesive whole. Add an artistic touch to your kitchen through unique artwork, tapestries, plates, or sconces.

Lighting will also create a distinctive decorative touch. Recessed lighting can be added for approximately 75-100 per fixture. Under- cabinet lights will add a soft glow, while sleek track lighting is a perfect fit for industrial-style kitchens.

Finally, purchase a new kitchen faucet to complement the new decor. Match the finish of the faucet to the new cabinetry hardware to pull the room together. See your local improvement store for a wide selection of stylish faucets.

Need Ideas?
Model homes are staged to sell, so be on the look out for homes in the Lakewood Ranch community where you can tour the home and find inspirations for your kitchen.
