An updated, stylish kitchen is said to improve a homes value and its odds for quick resale. At the same time, its helpful if a listing is something of a blank slate. “Its critical that a prospective buyer see themselves in the space—or at least be able to see the possibility of that,” says John Nations, construction manager for New Pointe Communities, a custom residential developer in San Diego. But design trends change regularly, making whats considered fashionable today possibly passé tomorrow. Some of us can remember when backsplashes were routinely decorated with tiles depicting fruit-filled cornucopias, but few buyers can see themselves prepping dinners or entertaining within such a space today. Same goes for dark wood kitchens with beams dangling with rustic baskets: Once cozy and romantic, theyre now looked upon as outdated and claustrophobic.
In general, oversized fixtures are more on trend, along with ceiling fans with lights built in, and almost all bulbs are LEDs for better performance, greater efficiency, and new smart-home applications, says Joe Rey-Barreau, an architect, lighting designer, and education consultant for the American Lighting Association. Among some of the new LED uses are in linear strips that can be installed easily inside or on top of cabinets, in bookshelves, along toe kicks in kitchens and baths, and in ceiling coves and cornices. For sellers who want to update fixtures before listing to improve how rooms show, Rey-Barreau says the number of attractive, affordable options has increased. Thats especially helpful if they must leave such upgrades behind, which of course depends on the sales contract.
