Arizona Kitchen Cabinets – 5 Steps to Improved Home Resale Value

If you’re considering a Gilbert kitchen cabinet upgrade, there is no better time than right now. Whether you live in Gilbert, Mesa, or Chandler, upgrading your kitchen cabinets can add tremendous value to your home, and when the market begins to turn around this is investment you’ll be glad you made. According to, a minor kitchen upgrade could recoup 80 to 100% of a return. Follow these simply steps below to increasing your home value by upgrading your Gilbert kitchen cabinets:

  1. Find an Arizona kitchen specialist – Of course, the first thing you’ll want to do is find the right person for the job. Even if you’re considering the DIY approach to kitchen cabinet upgrades, it’s best to at least sit down with a skilled cabinet craftsman to talk about your options.
  2. Ask your realtor – Anytime that you are looking to add some value to your home for resale in the future, you need to talk to your realtor, or have your home appraised. A realtor, however, will help you get the biggest bang for your buck. They’ll know what styles and materials do better in terms if resale and can help you get a larger return on the cabinet upgrade.
  3. Have a plan – Are you going to do a complete demo and take out all existing cabinetry? Or are you going to resurface the cabinets that you have. How do you decide? Well, if the cabinets are in good shape but need a color, stain, or refinishing upgrade, keep them. Old cabinets can be easily and affordably upgraded, and the affordable refinishing project can reap huge returns. However, if the wood is damaged in areas, if the wood is brittle, water damaged, or simply not up to par with what you have in mind, demo those old cabinets and get some new ones installed.
  4. Create a file – When you have your plan, your Gilbert kitchen cabinet specialist, and your budget, you’ll need to start creating a file to keep all of the paperwork, specs, receipts, quotes, color swatches, photos of Arizona kitchen cabinets that you like, and contracts. Keep these file available and handy at all times.
  5. Arizona Kitchen Cabinet Components – We’ve all seen those Ikea commercials where the kitchen cabinet drawers slowly close to a perfect fit. When following the above steps, keep in mind that there is a stark difference between a Gilbert kitchen that is functional, smooth and resourcefull and one that simply looks good but serves no real purpose.
