Have you been considering a kitchen remodel? If so, you would be investing in the most fundamental room of your home. Not only might an updated kitchen be more functional and enjoyable for you, but it would likely impress potential buyers when it comes time to sell and boost your home’s value.  While you may have a vision for your future kitchen, consider contacting your real estate agent for advice on what kitchen improvements provide the best return on your investment.

The money you anticipate putting into the redesign and the reason behind your desire to remodel will likely govern the completed project and which decision is best and most feasible for your needs. If you anticipate putting your house on the market in the near future, versus staying in the home for the next 20 years, the importance of the return on your investment will clearly change.

The most advisable approach to updating, remodeling, or completely renovating a kitchen, is to work with a well-established contractor in your area having expertise in both design and construction. Be prepared to share your vision, expectation for remaining in the house and the amount of money you can invest in the project.  These factors will impact the remodeling options and recommended upgrades based on trends that are typical for your area and neighborhood.  

Additional remodeling ideas and trends can be found by attending area open houses that may help you compare your vision to what is hot in the market or what is not. Be sure to focus on how others have remodeled and arranged to better merge your renovation concept with functionality. 

Remodeling the kitchen can be great investment especially with reliance upon classic design, by avoiding over improvement and using a skilled and reputable contractor, known for quality workmanship. Regardless of your budget, there are numerous economical ways to makeover a kitchen and give it a fresh new look. Contact me today for a consultation. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have, and help you get the process started.
