For Sale Part I: Kitchen Lighting Upgrades to Help Sell Your Home

Are you in the market to sell your home? With so many small towns and big cities flooded with inventory, making your home stand out will not only help it sell and sell quickly but sell for the price you’re hoping for. Getting top dollar for your home sometimes requires spending money on kitchen remodeling in St. Louis, MO, now before listing. While that seems counterintuitive, even small upgrades can help set your home apart from an outdated crowd.

For many, the kitchen can be a deal-breaker or a deal-maker when it comes to buying or selling a home. If you are trying to figure out which areas of your home to upgrade, buyers are most interested in the kitchen and bathrooms  – so it pays to upgrade these rooms first. One of the simplest yet effective upgrades you can make in the kitchen is to change the lighting.

Recessed Lighting
If you have an older home, you likely have one ceiling fixture located in the center of the room. Replace it with recessed lighting to create a more even wash of light. In a larger kitchen, you can separate your recessed lighting into zones that can be turned on and off independently for customized lighting.

Pendant Lighting
Pendant lighting is popular in modern kitchen designs because they offer unique style options and functionality. Pendant lights enhance recessed lighting by providing efficient task lighting when hung strategically, like over a kitchen island.

Under Mount Cabinet Lighting
Up your kitchen lighting game entirely by installing LED lights under your kitchen cabinets. This not only makes for great task lighting for your counters but adds a look of style and sophistication to your kitchen design.

LED Lighting
Upgrade your current lighting fixtures with LED bulbs to boost your wattage and increase energy efficiency. Choose an LED temperature that is not too white and not too soft to provide a pleasant glow. This will make your kitchen brighter and more inviting.
