fireplace in kitche good for resale? (cross-post)
my dh and i are coming to the conclusion that we'd be better off waiting a few years to sell our home. it's been extensively remodeled over the years and is overall pretty spiffy---with the exception of the kitchen, which is fully functional but small and unfinished.
so we've come up with a plan for a large eat-in kitchen with a large fireplace (w/ an efficient woodstove insert) to finish this place off. my cabs will be modest boxes with great doors and drawer fronts, formica counters and a commercial range (which we already use).
my worry is that buyers will want granite counters and name brand cabs instead of a fireplace--though we live at an up and coming ski area, so the fireplace should be an extra added attraction, shouldn't it?
help me to decide to go with my gut, or give me good reasons to spend my money on the granite, please.
thanks, i appreciate the input.
