Remodelling the kitchen to add value to your home: Important things to keep in mind

For many people, the kitchen is the heart of the home. This is why updates in this part of the home usually pay off. You can get back well over 150 per cent of your investment on the upgrade of your kitchen, as long as you avoid going overboard.  It is counterproductive to make the kitchen fancier than other parts of the house, but a great kitchen can also help a house more quickly.
Why you should carefully consider before taking the plunge into a deluxe kitchen
There are many occasions where houses put up for sale have remained in the market longer than they should simply because the owners made the mistake of making the kitchen look miles better than other parts of the house. Imagine spending tens of thousands to upgrade the kitchen of a 1900 home to one from 2015; then realising that it just doesn’t fit.
Such remodelling will see the introduction of appliances, countertops and features that will make the kitchen feel like it was dropped in from a high scale restaurant kitchen. This new style and quality will look entirely out of place when placed side by side with the rest of the house. This is why you need to keep your potential buyers in mind when remodelling your kitchen. The vast majority of people would love an exquisite kitchen, but only if it rhymes perfectly with the rest of the house.
This is why bespoke kitchen design by Mike Taylor, and similar expert services, are vital for people looking to improve a home’s value for a potential sale. Top designers will ensure your kitchen fits naturally into the bigger picture, but also looks amazing.
A little paint may be all you need
When looking at the cost of remodelling your kitchen, it be very steep. This is why you need to make sure you are getting good value for everything you do. One way to get good value for your money is to simply paint the kitchen. Paints of modern colours, following in vogue trends, can go a long way to improving the look of your kitchen. Fortunately, paint is relatively cheap, and DIY too.
You should consider using paint that has been certified to have low volatile organic compounds. This makes your kitchen more eco-friendly and also ensures your family won’t be breathing in dangerous chemicals.
Use energy-efficient appliances
To achieve best value in your kitchen you should consider replacing old appliances with models that are energy efficient. Such appliances are not just good for the environment, they also save money because they use less energy. You can be sure potential buyers will be on the lookout for anything that will help them save money.  If you have too many appliances that need replacing, consider shopping in bulk during sales periods at any of the big dealers around you. This will help you save money on the purchase.

You don’t have to make dramatic changes to your kitchen to add value to your home. It is about making your house ready to move in. If you are considering spending a hefty sum on a new kitchen then make sure you call in experts to advice you on the best options to fit your space, and the theme you are going for; and make the new kitchen in keeping with the rest of the house.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
