How to Make Your Winnetka, Glencoe, Highland Park Kitchen Look Expensive

It's no secret that two of the spaces that help to sell a home on Chicago's North Shore are the bathroom and the kitchen. Buyers today want to see updated baths and kitchens that they can simply step into and use efficiently without having to make drastic changes. But don't worry, home sellers— that doesn't mean you need to plan a massive remodel to please North Shore buyers.

Below are five easy ways you can make your Glencoe, Deerfield, Winnetka, Northbrook or Highland Park kitchen look expensive, without breaking the bank or your back!

1. Pick a luxurious color palette
Muted colors like creams and greys can do wonders for your North Shore home! Brighter, bolder colors can turn off buyers and make it difficult for them to envision their belongings in the space which may not pair so well with a harsh red, for instance.

2. Incorporate texture
Before you take to coating the walls in one coat of flat paint, consider your options. Varying high gloss and matte finishes can help to make the space interesting and feel more high-end. You can also bring in textured elements like plants and distressed hardware to add additional layers.

3. Add new hardware
One of the easiest ways to make a space feel fresh and new is by simply changing out your cabinet hardware! Toss out your outdated cabinet pulls, opting for clean lines in a brass or nickel finish— and don't be afraid to mix metals!

4. Add new light fixtures
If your kitchen in the Glencoe, Deerfield, Winnetka, Northbrook or Highland Park areas is sporting a chandelier from decades ago, it may be time to splurge on something new. Simple fixtures like glass pendants or globes can help to modernize the space while making it feel more open and airy.

5. Add a new backsplash
Tile is one of the features that can make a home feel dated— especially if your home was built mid-century and boasts a pastel color scheme. Set aside some time to remove the old tile from your backsplash and replace it with something new!

There are dozens of ways you can show off your home in its best possible light this spring— and not just in the kitchen or bath!
