I don't care what most experts say, kitchens are what sell homes! Bathrooms come in a close second, but if you are going to focus a limited budget on home improvements, the kitchen is the room that can make or break a home sale. Appliances should accent the countertops and cabinetry, specialty lighting over breakfast bars can add that certain "pop" to any decor, and don't limit yourself to granite when choosing countertops. There are now many different varieties of materials to use that can add value and still look amazing. The following link will give you some great ideas on what to do to increase your kitchen's appeal and get your home sold faster.
While good taste is always a must, the quality of the materials and craftsmanship really make whatever choice you make in improvements a great one. Ask design professionals for their opinions if you get the chance, and never try to cut corners or all of your efforts will be for nothing. You want your buyers to have an easy move-in ready experience, and the likelihood of that happening when your renovations are well executed is very high when you do it right. Good luck!
