Add a little bit of wow factor to your kitchen. Handles, stone benchtops and splashbacks all help to elevate your kitchen design to stylish new heights.
For the bones of your kitchen, a neutral palette with tones that tie into your living space will give your kitchen a facelift without the risk of dating. But don’t play it too safe – a kitchen that looks too basic and plain won’t inspire buyers to pay more. A little bit of wow factor is going to be more enjoyable to live in, and will help sell your home when the time comes, so consider elements that will capture attention in a good way. Check out the NEW profile doors in Freedom Kitchen’s latest Designer Catalogue to see how these finishes can elevate the aesthetics of your kitchen, without polarizing future buyers.
If you want to make a big style statement but you’re wary about it withstanding the test of time, then try details that can be easily swapped out down the track. Cabinet handles in trendy seasonal tones, patterned splashback tiles, or distinctive pendant lights can create low-commitment impact.
Long term or short term, it’s always wise to invest in quality cabinetry with soft-close features, backed by a long warranty, like Freedom Kitchen’s 7 year warranty. This warranty is available with the Designer Range for forever homes, as well as the fully assembled Value Range and Essential flat pack range, which is an ideal option for flip projects that need a fast and affordable build.
Design for the target market.
There’s no point over-investing in your kitchen with commercial grade appliances and finishes like natural marble benchtops if buyers for the area aren’t willing to pay more for these inclusions.
Vice-versa, if you are selling in an affluent area, then you should follow the lead of other successful sales in the area and match the level of premium appliances and finishes buyers are seeking.
Remember that no matter the price range, if the demographic mainly attracts families, then a well-equipped, spacious family kitchen will always be high on the buyer’s wishlist.
Top design tweaks: Layout and storage.
The bottom line is, a functional layout and plenty of storage are the top selling points for any style kitchen, in any location.
