Add Value to Your Kitchen Renovation in Sunshine Coast

Thinking about capitalising on the competitive housing market? Refresh your home with a kitchen renovation and position it to sell for top dollar!

Kitchen with pendant lights

Kitchens are the hub of the home, so it’s crucial they function well and look good at the same time! Lack of storage, dated design, and poor functionality are all common bugbears and can be a significant deterrent for potential buyers. But a well-planned kitchen upgrade can change all of that! Not only will a renovation modernise your home, it will also add value.

If adding value is your priority, it’s important to choose the right style, features, and specialists for your kitchen renovation. Research timeless design, current trends, and innovative technology, invest in quality finishes – a wonky DIY tile job is never a good look! – and ensure your renovation is cohesive with the rest of your home. 

Choosing the Right Kitchen Renovation Specialist

Renovating a kitchen is no small task. Sourcing materials, ensuring council compliance, scheduling multiple tradespeople, managing the workflow – the list goes on! That’s why working with a kitchen renovation specialist makes sense for busy homeowners. It’s never easy deciding who should renovate your home, but a good specialist will be familiar with council requirements, have an established network of trusted professionals, and can manage the workflow to ensure a stress-free renovation.

Upgrading to Luxury Kitchens: What You Need to Know

We have seen an increase in demand for luxury kitchens on the Sunshine Coast. A luxury kitchen is custom designed and features high-quality appliances, elegant finishes, and ample storage space. Bespoke lighting design, natural materials, and high ceilings are also hallmarks of a designer kitchen, as well as an open floor plan and increasingly, a scullery or butler’s pantry.

This year, expect to see more Hamptons style kitchens on the Sunshine Coast, which deliver a serene style characterised by natural light and neutral colours. The style blends contemporary kitchen elements with a nod to the traditional Shaker style kitchens.

What type of ROI can you expect from your kitchen remodel?

Many homeowners wonder if a kitchen renovation increases their home’s value or what the ROI on a kitchen remodel will be. ROI stands for ‘return on investment’ and measures how much money, or profit, is made on an investment. It is usually expressed as a ratio or percentage. To understand your kitchen renovation ROI, follow this formula:

Value of your home after renovation – value of your home pre renovation = gross return.

Gross return – cost of your renovation = net return.

Net return / cost of renovation x 100 = ROI percentage

Let’s assume your house is valued at AU$750,000 and, upon completion of a AU$70,000 kitchen renovation, your home is now valued at AU$850,000. Following our formula we can find our ROI percentage:

$850,000 – $750,000 = $100,000

$100,000 – $70,000 = $30,000

$30,000/$70,000  x $100 = 42.85%

This means that your kitchen renovation has had a 42% return on your investment. The higher your ROI, the more profitable your renovation is. 

What factors influence the ROI of your kitchen renovation?

Many factors will influence your ROI including the cost of your renovation, the quality of materials, appliance choices, layout changes, and the market. If you plan to sell your home, it’s important to be realistic about your home resale value and not spend more money on your renovation than you will gain back.
