The Bold Countertop Choice That's
A Deal Breaker For Home Buyers
Making your home attractive to an array of buyers usually involves the use of neutral tones throughout the interior, as bold color choices like yellow counters can be off-putting.
Kitchens and bathrooms add the most value to a home, and countertop upgrades result in an ROI of up to 80%. This makes choosing the right material and color essential for resale.
In the kitchen, yellow countertops have connotations of aging and discoloration, leading potential buyers to think they haven’t been properly maintained or are of poor quality.
The color also looks outdated, conjuring images of 1960s colored laminate or 1970s yellowish-tan granite, and presents a problem of aesthetics that may turn new buyers away.
