Kitchen Remodeling Tips For Real-estate Investors

 

To flip your property as quickly as possible and get top dollar from today’s sophisticated consumer. We recommend properties that have or can be remodeled to have the following highly sought after features:

Open Plan

Kitchen walls are coming down, sometimes to expand the rooms into the adjacent spaces, and sometimes to make the transition between rooms more fluid. Visual dividers – such as a taller section of island that hides the sink, or a change in ceiling height give the kitchen an identity of its own without completely closing it off from the adjoining spaces.

Social Seating

The breakfast nook is disappearing, not because it isn’t useful but because it is too remote. Seating in today’s kitchens is about being in the thick of things – gathering and socializing where the food is prepared. Bar stools or chairs around the island will help sell the kitchen.

Wine Racks

Wine racks and bar fridges because the party is always in the kitchen! Not only does a wine rack add an interesting design feature to the space. This island corner saves precious sqft.

Center Island

Most people want one, but if your kitchen is too small, don’t squeeze one in anyway. Instead, add a narrow console on wheels or a small butcher block table that can be easily moved out of the way as necessary.

Fad Kitchen Colours

The Zen design team is always down to push the design envelope. However real-estate property kitchens should stick to fairly neutral tones and simple understated design features. 60% of the kitchens we sell are white. A potential home buyer should be able to picture themselves in the kitchen.
