    Will a trendy kitchen devalue my house?

    You’re ready to create your dream kitchen and it’s bang up-to-date. But will it wear well? Will those trendy kitchen worktops look dated in a year’s time? Will help me sell my house in Woking? Even if you have no immediate plans to sell, you probably know what the value of your property is and aim to preserve it. Fortunately, by making a few design tweaks you may be able to install your trendy dream kitchen now without needing to worry about the future. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before you start.

    How long will the kitchen last?

    backgroundWhile granite worktops can last decades, most other kitchen items have a more limited lifecycle. As an example, cabinets will typically last up to 50 years, but the doors, handles and paintwork will need refreshing long before then. White goods typically last 5-15 years, so if you’re planning on moving in 15-20 years, you may as well get whatever you want as it’ll need refreshing before you move anyway!

    When we move, will we rent or sell?

    A broad appeal is more important if you’re planning to rent out your home. If you’re selling, then the buyer will want to stamp their own personality on the property so will happily repaint, redecorate and replace items that don’t suit them. It’s another strong argument in favour of going for your own taste, particularly for items that are easy to replace or alter.

    How easy is it to change?

    A bright red wall isn’t to everyone’s taste, but it’s one of the easiest and most affordable things to change in a kitchen. If you like to change colour schemes and styles regularly, you can create a trendy new look every year by repainting and changing a few fabrics and accessories. As an example, if you choose a timeless granite worktop and cabinets in a neutral shade, you can quickly and dramatically alter the kitchen with a coat of paint, new curtains and a few other details. Neutral doesn’t have to be dull, old-fashioned or retro either – a glossy black cabinet or granite worktop will look trendy without going out of style.

    Will this kitchen grow with my family?

    As your needs change, will your trendy kitchen still work for you? Creating a flexible space that can handle the developing needs of growing children, ageing pets or a new relationship is tricky but well worth the investment. Once you’ve created the perfect space, it will be a room you cherish and enjoy for years. A kitchen that works is a real asset to any home, whether you live in period property in Woking or penthouse in W8.  And if some of the features eventually look dated, then so what? As you grow older you’ll enjoy looking back at the memories you created in this special space.
