Updates to Your Brea Home’s Kitchen That Will Pay You Back

Whether you’re looking to make renovations to your kitchen to get more enjoyment and functionality out of it, or you’re looking to catch a potential homebuyer’s eye, there are several updates you can make to your Brea home’s kitchen that can help your chances of selling and can drive up value. Here are a few tips:

  • A great way to add some more counter space in your kitchen without ripping everything out is to install an island. Kitchen islands can provide a great surface away from the counter to prepare meals, organize utensils and serve other organizational purposes with all of the extra cabinetry and space a kitchen island can provide, according to online home design and DIY platform Traditional House. Also, kitchen islands are a relatively inexpensive fix when compared to other home improvement projects or a complete kitchen remodel. There are also a wide variety of islands that can fit any style of decor, including rectangular, round, antique and modern.
  • Adding molding to your Brea home’s kitchen can give it a more elegant feel. Also, molding breaks up extra space on the wall, floor and ceiling to not only give your kitchen a classy atmosphere, but make it feel more cozy as well.
  • Another great idea to make your kitchen seem more cozy is to install a breakfast nook in the corner. Having a breakfast nook or any large space for seating in the corner not only utilizes the corner in a brilliant way, but creates a place where people can sit and relax or have a chat.
  • Updating your kitchen hardware is an incredibly simple and inexpensive fix for your home. Old hardware can give your home a dated look, while new hardware is simple to install and cheap to buy. For a more rustic look, go for a nice, aged bronze color; or, if you’re more geared toward the modern look, stainless or brushed steel can give a kitchen a great look.
