How to update your property for a sale

Property buyers will normally expect the kitchen and bathroom/s to be in a good condition in a property for sale, unless it’s reflected in the asking price. This six bedroom house currently on the market with Goodfellows Raynes Park has been completely modernised, including its beautiful open-plan kitchen. The owners have fitted sleek units that look more like pieces of furniture than a kitchen, blending seamlessly into the other living area which makes the kitchen really appealing to potential buyers.

However, if you are thinking about selling your property but feel that the kitchen is letting it down and you have a limited your budget you could bring it up to date by incorporating some of these simple ideas:

Get some design inspiration from sites such as Pinterest and Houzz. Once you have chosen the style of your kitchen you can then try and incorporate it into your existing scheme.

If your kitchen units are looking at bit tired you could give them a new lease of life with a fresh coat of paint. Neutral colours such as greys and whites work, especially if you are looking at selling your property.

By changing your cupboard handles it could update the look of your units.

Updating old taps can really make a difference to your room.

If you can’t afford to change outdated tiles why not spruce them up with a coat of tile paint.

Introduce some new lighting, such as a suspended modern light fitting.

Re-paint the walls of your kitchen in a modern colour which compliments your cupboards.

Update flooring by adding a rug or mat.
