If you’re thinking about selling your home in DC Ranch this summer, you may want to take a good, hard look at your kitchen. The kitchen is the central hub of the home, and for many buyers, it’s a make-or-break space. Here’s what you need to know.
3 Kitchen Improvements to Consider Making if You’re Selling Your Home in DC Ranch This Summer
You should always talk to your DC Ranch REALTOR® before you invest any money in home improvements to sell – you may not need to make any improvements at all (sometimes buyers would rather have full control over what happens in the space). However, if you talk to your agent and agree that your kitchen needs to be updated a bit, these are three things buyers are looking for right now:
- Rejuvenated cabinets
- Updated lighting
- New quartz countertops
Here’s a closer look at each.
Kitchen Improvement #1: Rejuvenated Cabinets
If your kitchen cabinets are looking a little tired, it may be time for an update. Dark colors are on their way out, because they make a space appear smaller and more closed-in. You may only need to give the cabinets a quick facelift, which you can do yourself or hire a contractor for – or you may need to replace them entirely. If you’ve been frustrated with the way your cabinets are set up, prospective buyers may be, too.

Kitchen Improvement #2: Updated Lighting
If you’re living with the light fixtures that came with your home, it may be time to upgrade. Take a quick trip to your favorite home improvement store to see what’s available – you may be surprised at how home lighting has evolved. A new fixture, whether you choose a flush-mount piece or a pendant (pendants are definitely more popular), can make a tremendous difference in the way buyers see your home. Swap out the fixtures over your island and kitchen sink, or go all-out and have a dimmer installed.
Kitchen Improvement #3: New Quartz Countertops
Quartz is more durable and environmentally friendly than many other kitchen countertop materials, but that’s only part of the reason it’s growing in popularity. It’s light and bright, and it’s easy to clean – and even better, it’s less likely to stain because it’s less porous than traditional materials are.
