Increase a home's value with Amish kitchen furniture

by Tom Grimes

Those who want to increase the resale value of their home may first want to take a look at the kitchen. The National Association of Realtors estimates that more than 72 percent of kitchen renovations can enhance the value of a residence.

Upgrading a kitchen should be thoughtfully planned. Before committing to anything, homeowners should familiarize themselves with the latest in design trends, particularly ones that can appeal to a large group of people.

Painting the walls and looking for new lighting options are affordable touches that can make a difference, but many may want to opt for a makeover that can leave the room feeling completely new. This may attract more attention from individuals looking for a home, and it may even have a positive effect on the household.

Promoting a rustic theme throughout the area can be effective, because traditional aesthetics can appeal to many different people. Pieces of Amish handcrafted furniture such as the furniture shaker pie safe or pine wood vegetable bin can be distinctive additions to the room and provide a charming storage solution for any kitchen.

An Amish kitchen island can also serve as a focal point for kitchens that are in need of a unifying element, as well as a spot for the family to eat casual meals and appetizers.
