Updating 90s honey oak kitchen for resale
I was pointed over here by a helpful member in the Kitchens forum, and wanted to get your valuable opinions! In a nutshell, I'm trying to update this kitchen:
In a nutshell:
Cabinets: honey oak, finish is a mess (scratched, water spots - hasn't been touched in 16 years)
Counters: white laminate (including backsplash). Stained. Nicked. Horrid.
Floors: greyish ceramic tile, cracked and nicked. Looks dirty even when it's not.
Is it worth it to throw say $5K into updating this? This is a large house for our neighborhood, and to get one this size, you'd be looking at new builds a couple of miles away for about 60K more.
There's a lot more information in this post in the Kitchen Forum, along with some tentative granite / tile / gel stain options we've considered.
