kitchen remodel with eye on resale
Looking for an opinion on whether to do a white kitchen for a house that we will definitely sell in 3 or 4 years. For several reasons, waiting to do the reno is not an option.
KDs say go all white. Two realtors disagree.
KDs say the look is timeless and will help the house sell. Realtor says it is trendy and will pass. They also say that the market we are in (very upscale) will appreciate the custom cherry cabs and exotic granite and that the all-American, white kitchen look is not a a selling plus in our area (heavily international).
I want a white kitchen, but am worried b/c I do remember that in our starter neighborhood in 1999, the only white kitchen houses were the cheap ones. Could those days come back? Would appreciate any thoughts-- this is not so much about taste (I like the white asthetic!) as it is about re-sale value into the future. One thing that would help me feel better is if anyone remembers upscale houses with white kitchens from say, more than five years ago?
Thanks in advance!!
