Your reason for remodeling your kitchen may be because it is time to sell your house or you finally have the money to remodel your Chicagoland kitchen.

According to and HGTV article “10 Tips to Increase Your Home’s Value” a kitchen is the number 1 upgrade that will give you the greatest return. So what kitchen upgrades will give you the biggest return and increase the value of your kitchen and home?      

Brakur Custom Cabinetry last year celebrated over 50 years of business in the Chicagoland Area. Here at Brakur through experience we have learned what is most important and know what will increase the value of your kitchen. We thought we would share some of what we have learned over the years.

How to Increase the Value of Your Kitchen

  • Use a quality cabinet that is well-built and sturdy construction.
  • Use a professionally trained kitchen designer that understands the importance of function and style so your kitchen is not just a room full of cabinets. (Brakur provides you with a designer so you don’t have to find your own and it is included in the price.)
  • Paint the walls of your kitchen. Don’t forget the space behind the countertops.
  • Get a countertop such as granite or quartz that is durable and long lasting. They are low maintenance and resist scratches and stains.
  • Add small details such as lighting, glass inserts, and crown molding.
  • Change your flooring to hardwood, laminate or tile.
  • Make sure your appliances match or consider appliance panels.
  • Use reputable contractors and make sure things are not left unfinished. You want someone who will pay attention to small details.

When going with a cabinet company such as Brakur Custom Cabinetry you don’t have to worry if the things you are doing will add value to your kitchen. You can trust that you are getting a good quality cabinet and years of experience in kitchen design and kitchens. Our kitchen remodeling experts will work within your budget and help you determine those upgrades that are worth doing and those you can go without.
