With the real estate market at an all-time high, sellers are looking for ways to increase the value of their homes quickly and affordably. As the number one residential painters in Massachusetts, our professionals at Metrowest Painting are also feeling the effects of a booming market. Why? Well, because, with a few painting touches in your kitchen, you can quickly achieve that fresh, upgraded looking buyers want. Here, we’re offering a few considerations when it comes to jazzing up your kitchen with a fresh coat of paint.
Dirty walls? No, thank you.
One of the most apparent changes you can make to any area of the home, including the kitchen, is painting the walls. Let’s face it, in high-traffic areas (like the kitchen), walls get dirty. With a fresh coat of paint you can quickly erase the mess and obtain the clean look buyers want to see. This is also the perfect opportunity to reconsider the type of finish you’re using. For example, if your kitchen currently has a matte finish, you may notice that it’s not so easy to clean – not really a desirable feature in a high-traffic area prone to spills and other messes. Instead, you could swap to a gloss or high-gloss that allows for easy cleaning.
Let’s talk about those cabinets.
Another area of the kitchen that makes a significant difference when painted is your cabinets. Often, kitchens are one of the most outdated areas of the home. However, kitchens can also sell a home. With the assistance of experienced residential painters, you can spruce up your outdated kitchen to one that buyers go into bidding wars over. Depending on the aesthetic of the home and other details in the kitchen, you may want to consider sticking with a neutral color. However, going bold is always fun. There is no right or wrong answer here, especially when you have a team of experts to provide their advice. Just remember, what’s fun for you may be a complete turnoff for a potential buyer. If you plan on selling, sticking to a clean modern look is always the best path.
