Randy J. Smith Construction & Roofing Is An Expert In Renovation
If you think your home is looking stale, rejuvenate your home with a kitchen remodel. As the saying goes, the kitchen is the heart of the home. Next to the bedroom, people spend the most time in the kitchen. Obviously, you cook your meals there, but it is also a gathering spot for many throughout the day. A kitchen remodel can bring new life to your home.
Boost The Value Of Your Home With An Updated Kitchen
In most cases, you can count on your updated kitchen to boost the value of your home. It’s no shock that buyers are willing to pay more for high-end finishes and thoughtful upgrades. The industry’s standard ROI for mid-range kitchen makeover falls between 50% to 60% of your overall budget for remodeling. According to a recent survey, 80% of homebuyers placed the kitchen in their list of top three most important spaces.
It’s Important to Budget Your Kitchen Remodel
Whether you’re looking at a full renovation or a simple update, the cost of a kitchen remodel can exceed your expectations. Following three easy tips can help keep you on budget and save you headaches along the way:
1: Plan on spending the bulk of your budget on items you don’t want to buy often. Items such as appliances and cabinetry can last a long time with a good investment.
2: Make sure you’re not over-improving your kitchen. You won’t recover the costs of your remodel if your home is the most expensive in the area. A real estate agent can help you know what the average home goes for. The agent can also help you decide how much of an update could increase your selling point.
3: Expect the unexpected: Plan to set aside 10–15% of your budget for expenses that come up during the remodel. Experts say renovations never cost less than expected.
