Remodeling your kitchen is a
great way to get more value out
of your home when you put it

up for sale. Renovations don’t
have to be full remodels of your
home. Some renovations can be
as simple as installing an item
in your home that wasn’t there
before.
Install an island in your
kitchen if there is room for
one. An island is a great way to
increase counter and storage
space, adding more value to your

home. If you are unsure about
whether an island will work,
then create one using plywood
or cardboard to see if the
dimensions of the island will fit in
your kitchen. Make sure you can
open your fridge and stove doors.
If an island doesn’t fit, consider
purchasing a kitchen trolly.
Updating kitchen cabinet space
and counter space is a great way

• Replace all the old windows
in your home with energy saving
windows. These windows are
designed to prevent hot and cold
air from escaping your home. The

energy usage resulting in you
saving money and adding value
later.
• If you have digital assistant
in your home, you know how
helpful having a robot to give
you kitchen recipes can be. Take
it a step further by installing a
programmable thermostat and
Siri or Alexa can help you control
and program your thermostat to
a schedule.
You can program the house
to be a different temperature
when no one is home, saving you
money on your light bill.
