Go Natural
Opt for a neutral colour scheme when re-furbishing your kitchen for sale. A simple design executed well will ensure the room keeps its value for years to come. Similarly, a natural stone benchtop is timeless, but if that’s just out of your budget new engineered stone materials are a durable alternative.

The More Storage the Better
An uncluttered kitchen can do wonders for the value of your house. A large well appointed pantry increase the chances of selling. With open-plan living on the rise, having the ability to hide all the mess away, is an appealing feature.

Update Fixtures
Swap old fixtures in favour of new ones. Simple features like a tap with a retractable head will differentiate your property to others. Updating the kitchen fixtures seems like a small detail but can influence the overall value of the room.

Bright Splashback
A key way to update, and add value to your kitchen, is by replacing the splashback. Not only is it relatively affordable, it will instantly make the room look modern. In a small space, always choose a light-coloured backsplash as it can make the kitchen appear bigger!
