A New Kitchen Can Increase Your Home’s Value and Enjoyment

Do you enjoy cooking for your family, your relatives and for friends around the neighborhood? How about the great get-togethers that happen around a home that smells like a gourmet restaurant?

If you like to eat out in restaurants every day, this tip is not for you. But if you value the time you spend in the kitchen creating new and delicious meals that are crowd and family pleasers, I’m here to tell you… Keep on cooking baby!

However, cooking is not nearly as much fun when you’re in a kitchen that looks like it’s from the 1960s. It’s a fact, that amateur home chefs have much more fun, and are more creative, cooking in a kitchen with all the new appliances, fixtures and “bells and whistles.”

What’s great is, while you’re enjoying your awesome kitchen… a kitchen your visitors want to hang out in because it’s so cool… you secretly think about how your new kitchen increased the value of your home by $40,000, $50,000 or more!

While it does cost you to totally remodel your kitchen, this cost is really an investment in your home. Not only will a modern kitchen with all the bells and whistles increase your home’s value… when you go to sell your home, your awesome kitchen could be the biggest selling point.

And that’s a big deal, since at any time there are 10s of thousands of homes for sale in any particular area. And when you want to sell, who’s homes do you think will sell the easiest? The home with the 1960s faded yellow appliances and the old school fake counter top laminates? Or the kitchen that looks like a studio for Food Network?
