When you’re designing and remodeling a kitchen to sell your home faster, you’re basically redesigning it for someone else’s taste, so it is wise to use a simple design. You don’t need to worry about things like crazy accessories, extra storage, crown molding, or expensive drawer knobs. Those things can easily be added or replaced after the home is purchased, and aren’t the major selling points of the new kitchen.

You’ll want to stick with vintage or plain style cabinets and just the standard drawer size. This simple design won’t appeal to everyone, but also gives the potential home owner lots of options to work with in the future.

Choosing the right colors palette
When redesigning your kitchen it is important to use neutral colors. The most popular colors are beige, brown, and white. White cabinets work well with basically any design and color palette, and also give the kitchen a much more open look. These colors appeal to buyers of all ages, compared to the more trendy colors.
