Here’s How to Increase Your Home Value in 2023


Real estate brokers, builders, HGTV researchers and even Forbes magazine agree on one thing: investing in your kitchen can increase your home value and the appeal of your house. Even in 2023, with a changing real estate landscape, kitchen and bath remodeling is a wise place to put your energy and money. Luxury home buyers expect the kitchen to be well-equipped with high-performance appliances and thoughtfully designed cabinetry. And whenever there is a surprise in the kitchen, like a Wolf Convection Steam Oven or Sub-Zero Wine Storage, there is a perceived increase in your home value, and this will give you an advantage when it comes time to sell. Here are a few tips for unique appliances that will increase your home value and create a property that will inspire bidding wars once again…

Wolf appliances are a proven winner for adding value to your home.

Point-of-Use Refrigeration

Designers and homeowners in New England agree that Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers give your kitchen a boost in many ways. With Sub-Zero drawers, you can design with point-of-use refrigeration. Instead of having everyone in the family reaching for that one handle, you locate Sub-Zero refrigerator or freezer drawers in strategic locations in your kitchen. Place one in your mudroom for kids’ snacks, another in your island for easy access to produce when making your salads. You might consider creating a breakfast station with an undercounter refrigerator for breakfast foods and juices and a built-in Wolf Coffee System up above. Think through who uses your refrigerator and how, then design your refrigeration strategically. This will save you energy, reduce traffic jams in the kitchen and make your kitchen unique and more valuable to buyers down the road.

Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers allow you to locate refrigeration at point of use, adding convenience and value to your home.
