A new kitchen is right at the top of the list when it comes to what homeowners and buyers want most. They not only add beauty and functionality, but increase the value of your home significantly. Experts say that the best kitchen remodels will stay in the mid-range price of around $15,000 in order to get a good return on your investment. However, the average kitchen remodeling project costs around $22,000, primarily due to the type of materials/products you use and whether any major renovations are necessary.
New granite countertops, the addition of a kitchen island, new cabinetry, kitchen lighting and appliances can all have a hefty price tag. But if you do your research there are good deals to be had on these items that can cut costs in half. Most kitchen remodel projects will be handled by a general contractor that oversees the different aspects of the renovation work such as flooring, carpentry and electrical contractors.
