Help me update for resale
We will be updating our kitchen to put on the market soon and I would love opinions on how to best do it for around $10K.
Here's what it looks like now:
The kitchen is enclosed and is not open. It includes the kitchen and eat in area in one room. It is between a dining room on one side and a family room on the other. The other doors are the pantry and basement. Out of the windows is a sun room, which cuts out on the amount of light coming into the kitchen.
The tile floor is grey green, but greener than what it looks like in the pictures. We have already purchased new ss appliances for $2000. The dishwasher is fairly new and we will purchase a ss insert for it right before we put it on the market to keep it from getting dinged up.
We can not afford to replace the cabinets but are planning on painting them white, add new hardware, and maybe adding moldings at the top. The island we will paint dark grey or black. We are thinking of putting beadboard on the ends and maybe moldings on the bottom so that it looks more like a piece of furniture.
We have steel grey granite on hold at the fabricator. We will need to put a deposit on it in a couple of days if we decide it is what we want. Below is a link to what it looks like. We can get it for $38 a square foot. For old counter removal, stone, fabrication, installation, and sink it will be a little under $2000.
