Kitchen renovations and bathroom renovations are the most popular renovations today. With open plans dominating new developments and millennial buyers leaning into these modern architectural trends, motivated sellers would do well to perform a few basic upgrades to their kitchen area, if not re-imagine the space altogether. Here are a few of the most popular, and value-adding renovations you can perform before putting your home on the market.
Re-Piping with PEX
PEX piping is a soft-tube piping system that has several advantages over metal (copper, iron, lead) or plastic (PVC, CPVC, ABS) plumbing systems. It is flexible, resistant to scale and chlorine, doesn’t corrode or develop pinholes, is faster to install than metal or rigid plastic, and has fewer connections and fittings.*
Backsplash looking a bit beat up? Revive your back counters with a sleek tile in a minimalist geometric style. New tiles will be a significant addition to a modern kitchen, so choose wisely.
Increase the Footprint
The open floorplan dictates that rooms flow effortlessly into one another, eliminating compartmentalization and encouraging feng shui. Consult with a contractor to examine how you can increase your kitchen’s square footage by incorporating it into the dining and/or living areas.
