Lutz Kitchen Remodel Efforts Climb as Homeowners Try to Enhance Home Values
If you’d like to remodel the kitchen in your Lutz home, you’re not alone. Faced with a challenging real estate market and state economy that continues to struggle, many residents have decided to make the most of the homes they’re in. That means remodeling kitchens and bathrooms to make them more efficient, beautiful, and practical. A recent study by Remodeling Magazine actually found that Florida homeowners could expect a return of 79-82% for even minor remodeling efforts.
A few kitchen design ideas to consider as you remodel your Lutz kitchen:
Installing energy-efficient appliances is a logical first step, but if you really want to go green, we recommend using sustainable materials and finishes when you remodel. In drought-prone areas like Lutz, consider kitchen remodel ideas that conserve water. For more information, click here to read about our green commitment.
Improving the traffic patterns in your home can also significantly increase its resale appeal. Some homes have a disjointed feel or rooms that feel inaccessible or difficult to decorate. Prospective buyers notice this, and find it difficult to picture themselves living in your home. A forward-thinking kitchen design that incorporates plenty of open space and wide doorways could be the answer.
Eliminate old-fashioned design elements from your home. Not everyone is nostalgic about the past, and your favorite fixture from yesteryear may not resonate with someone who considers buying your home. That doesn’t mean you have to follow all trends, however. Just think "classic" instead of "old-fashioned" when you discuss potential ideas with your kitchen designer. They’ll help guide you.
Take advantage of universal design trends that increase accessibility for seniors. From levers and faucets that are easier to turn than traditional knobs, to lowered kitchen countertops and cabinets, you’ll find plenty of design options that could make life easier for you and any future residents.
