2. Freshen the countertops
Give the kitchen an instant color change by resurfacing or replacing the countertops. If it's in the budget, upgrading to natural granite or modern dyed concrete counters might just spark a bidding war for your updated property.
3. Brighten the kitchen
It's not uncommon for potential buyers to say the kitchen is too dark. Emile L'Eplattenier, real estate marketing and sales analyst at Fit Small Business notes, "Adding or enlarging a kitchen window to bring in natural light will get you the best ROI for your kitchen renovation." A fresh coat of a light-hue paint and bright light fixtures can also illuminate the space.
