More guidance and advice to boost YOUR home’s ‘sales price’ value with a successful kitchen renovation project!

Very recently - just a couple of weeks ago, here on this blog, we highlighted some excellent information and guidance reference going ahead with a kitchen renovation project this Summer.


two main aims


Doing so, of course, is all about two main aims … to get for yourself more valuable space at home AND, also, to try and achieve vital, ‘best possible’ sales price added value for your home, which will be ‘ready and waiting’ for when you do decide perhaps to sell-up and move on to a new home in the future!


excellent and informative


This very useful information and guidance comes via Angela Kerr, who is very much ‘a high flyer’ at the always, excellent, innovative and informative HomeOwners Alliance.


added sales price value


In this ‘part two’ blog post here, Angela offers more of her, vital kitchen project advice ‘presentation’. This time she highlights very important and worthwhile advice and guidance on just what IS best to do in order to REALLY get set and ready for that ‘money-making’ kitchen renovation project that you just may have on your mind….either for now …..or the near future!


right on track


She has many vital words of wisdom, for sure …. all very much worthwhile…and sure to to help you ‘score’ that all important future ‘added sales price value’ with your kitchen renovation project.


success story!


She knows all things ‘best to do’ to ensure you get right on track and so ensure a ‘do-able’ AND highly successful kitchen project for the Summer ahead. So, if you have new kitchen plans in mind this year ….best you read on….!!


get that kitchen project ‘sorted’


Straight talking ..straight away from Angela ….. “Although word of mouth referrals can often be a useful starting point to finding a local kitchen fitter, take time to research how long a company has been in business (the longer…. the better), whether they are insured…. or if they have the relevant credentials, as well as information on the subcontractors they usually use.”


best to do…


Angela is clear that, ideally, it’s best to get at least three different kitchen contractors’ project price estimates before choosing the candidate to ‘sort’ your vital kitchen project for YOU. She says, “Doing this helps you to get the best possible value for money, and, also, to establish whether your final budget is manageable…. or requires obvious cut-backs. Better to find out now rather than later as to what you can afford”.


find a builder…!


Angela adds that ‘key to do’ is to find the trusted local builders that have been ‘independently inspected’ in kitchen renovation. The HOA’s ‘Find a Builder’ service online link can surely help. (If you are in Cheltenham and the Cotswolds, of course, we at Mint are pleased to help guide and advise you on all key starter decision matters the very best we can!)


equipping that kitchen project


Getting all the equipment for that new kitchen is very much a key consideration in the process of course. Angela suggests ‘You can often buy everything for your new kitchen from cabinets, work surface, splash-backs, ovens and white goods (fridge freezer and dishwasher) from the one firm. However, if you have the time, it’s advisable to shop around to ensure you’re getting the best price. You might find a work surface cheaper elsewhere, but will then need to organise the fitting of it”.


‘white goods’


Also, more words of wisdom on equipping that new kitchen! Says Angela, “Shopping around is particularly worthwhile for white goods. Maximise your spending power by keeping an eye out for any upcoming sales” - Another useful thought for sure!


a key cost saving ‘area’


Angela also points out that…. “Costs can be kept down by retaining existing lighting, waste pipes and electric locations where they are. Once you start moving these fixtures around, the costs and hassle can rise, but, it may be necessary to get that ‘kitchen of your dreams’. For sure this issue needs considering closely!
