Include an Island bench

One of the hottest trends in kitchen design is an island bench, and including one in your kitchen renovation will instantly attract buyers. Island benches promote open plan design while proving additional bench and storage space – two very important requirements of any kitchen.

Waterfall edges are also trending at the moment, so consider adding this to your island bench if your budget permits.

Choose a modern benchtop

Aside from your choice of kitchen cabinets, your choice of benchtop is one of the first things potential buyers will see when they view your kitchen; therefore, make it count.

Keep in mind your target audience and location – if you are in a more exclusive estate or have a high-value house, a stone benchtop will be a much-rewarded investment. Otherwise, you can get some pretty good-looking laminate benchtops now that still look amazing, and will cost you far less than a stone benchtop – don’t overcapitalise.

Utilise the floor to ceiling

A kitchen with little storage is not going to sell a house. The more storage you can offer, the better. Therefore, maximise your space by installing kitchen cabinet from the floor to the ceiling. You have many affordable options at hand, from our pantry cabinets to open shelving; the choice is yours.

Choose a colour scheme for buyers

When it comes to choosing the colour of your kitchen, the most important thing to keep in mind is that this won’t be your kitchen for much longer – it will be your buyers. Therefore, choose colours that speak to a wide audience.

Safe colour schemes to consider are white, natural tones such as greys and beige, and monochromes. It is always safer to add a splash of colour through your dressings and accessories than tiles or a splashback.

For white kitchen cabinets, you will find none that offer better quality and easier installation at a lower price than ours. Click here to view our range – they pair superbly with any stone or laminate benchtop.

Dress it up with stainless steel appliances

Nothing looks better in a new kitchen than flashy stainless steel appliances. However, not just any stainless steel appliances will do. You want to invest in a brand that is known for quality, such as Euro Appliances, which is what we stock here at Ross’s Discount Home Centre.

You don’t want to skimp on any appliances, especially a dishwasher as this can be a deal-breaker for many. Having all appliances from the same brand is also a nice touch that buyers notice.


You know what they say, a kitchen sells a home; and it’s true! If you’re renovating your kitchen to help sell your home, then you want to look at it as an investment. You also want to know where to invest your money to get the greatest returns. In a kitchen renovation, look to invest in an island bench, a modern benchtop, floor to ceiling storage, an attractive colour that buyers will love and modern appliances from a quality brand.
