Important considerations for choosing a kitchen for a rental property
There are a number of things to bear in mind when choosing and installing a new kitchen for your rental property. These include:
- The colour scheme- while a neutral colour scheme is often thought to be the most effective choice, allowing your potential tenants to imagine the space in their own style, other colour combinations can be just as effective. Black and white kitchens for example can be considered extremely high end and contemporary in design.
- The budget- the budget for the new kitchen should be determined by your business sense rather than your design dreams. If you wont be charging high rates, you may need to lower the budget for your kitchen. But this doesn’t mean you need to skimp on style. Opting for a laminate worktop and MDF wrapped vinyl doors can save you money, while still creating a high quality, high end finish.
- The maintenance- in a rental property, it is important for the kitchen to be low maintenance, needing only a simple wipe clean. Avoid any hardwoods or natural stone that will need to be treated and sealed regularly.
