When you’re getting ready to put your home on the market, you want it to impress would-be buyers. And because the kitchen is such an important spot in your home, you really want to make sure it has the WOW factor necessary to grab the attention of your ideal buyer and help get your home sold.

Luckily, you don’t have to spend a ton of time or money to add some extra “wow” to your kitchen. A recent article on realtor.com outlined weekend DIY projects that can instantly make your home look more expensive (and, as a result, more appealing to buyers), including:

  • Building a custom copper rack for your pots and pans. Easy and inexpensive, a custom copper rack for your pots and pans is a great way to add a stylish edge to your kitchen. Just hang a copper pipe from your wall or ceiling, hang your pots and pans with inexpensive hooks, and you have a unique focal feature that instantly elevates your kitchen design.
  • Add a new light fixture above your kitchen table. If you have a kitchen table, switching out the light fixture above the table can instantly breathe new life into the space, making your kitchen feel more modern and on-trend.
  • Add crown molding to cabinets. Adding crown molding to the tops of your cabinets accomplishes a few different goals. It adds visual interest, makes the cabinets look more expensive, and also draws the eye upward, making cabinets look taller.

Bottom line? Small changes to your kitchen can make a big impact on your buyers—and with a little time and effort, you can easily make those changes in a single weekend.
