The kitchen used to be a welcoming place for eating and conversation, but today's kitchen has transformed into more than that. It is a room where cooking and baking meets studying, crafting, social gatherings and more.
Creating an inviting kitchen can make a big difference in a home's overall appeal, and with simple updates, the kitchen can also impact the buying decision.
If the existing cabinet finish is looking distressed, a paint job can turn it around. Make sure the appliances (dishwasher, stove, refrigerator, etc.) match. If the flooring is worn, look to replace it (if the budget allows). An easy way to update the kitchen is by replacing metal features - faucets, kitchen hardware, lighting and outlet covers.
Hiring a qualified inspector to perform a kitchen inspection can help identify any areas of concern. Inspecting the kitchen is just one part of a general NPI home inspection.
