The kitchen the most prominent feature that Buyers look upon once they arrive at a new home. Most often they have out grown their current kitchen and are looking for a larger, better quality kitchen in their new home. If the kitchen doesn’t satisfy the appetite of the Buyer, nothing else seems to make up for that with the rest of the home.
There are numerous specialty kitchen stores that can help you with your kitchen design. The amount of styles and sizes of cabinetry have exploded over the last decade. The best way to start is to set up a budget. It is also a good idea to get in touch with a contractor who will be able to remove old cabinets and install new ones, if needed. Get his estimate first before heading out to shop for your new kitchen. Depending on your budget, you can buy stock, semi-stock, or custom designs. Hardware, and special features such as: under valance lighting, “whisper close” on doors and drawers, drawers that slide out for ease of access inside pantries; granite, tile, and laminate counter tops are just some of the decisions that need to be made.
