A luxury Cuisines Rosemère kitchen is certainly a dream for many homeowners. Whether your aim is to remodel to boost the price so you can quickly flip the property or you really want more comfort and functionality, there are lots of ways you can add value—both functionally and aesthetically. In fact, even minor upgrades in the kitchen can vastly improve a home’s resale value. But just because something is sold as an upgrade does not mean it is worth the money.
You might not have heard about this, but ceramic flooring really is a thing. And in some ways, it is very good: it looks amazing, of course, and is among the strongest materials you can use for a floor. However, that you could quickly come to regret that strength when you try to cook—standing on ceramic flooring for a long time can kill your legs. That’s why most kitchens are designed with the not-as-good-looking vinyl (et al) tiling.
TOO MUCH STAINLESS STEEL
More than 40 percent of home buyers report that they are willing to pay more for a home with a kitchen that has stainless steel appliances. That might seem like it is a good idea to replace all of the appliances with stainless steel ones. Be careful, though, if there is too much metal in your kitchen, the room can feel cold and stiff—the exact opposite of the way a kitchen should feel. If you still want to go with stainless steel, try to coordinate other materials, textures, and colors to keep the room feeling warm and inviting.
MARBLE COUNTER TOPS
Marble counter tops have long been the epitome of gorgeous, luxurious kitchen design. Nobody ever tells you that these are extremely high maintenance—and they can actually stain pretty easily. At $100 per square foot, they are probably not worth the work; besides, granite is a little more popular these days (probably because they are a little more practical).
BUILT-IN COFFEE MACHINES
It might seem like apex of luxury and convenience but built-in coffee machines might actually create more problems than they solve. Sure, you might find one or two coffee snobs in your potential buyer list who may find it a novel idea, but that probably does not discount the fact that losing counter and storage space—at an expense upwards of $10,000—really is not much of a benefit.
