Kitchen Remodeling

Kitchen remodeling is a great investment in your home. By remodeling your kitchen you can add value to your home, and at the same time save money with energy efficient kitchen appliances, The increase in value depends on a number of different factors, including the extent of the remodeling, as well as the fixtures and materials chosen. In 2007, Remodeling Online estimated that the average kitchen remodel project returned approximately 78% resale value.

Choosing a Designer and Contractor
If you're handy and looking for a cosmetic update, installing new flooring, tile or granite, cabinetry and painting are time-consuming but do-able tasks for someone comfortable with home construction projects. However, if you're looking to completely remodel your kitchen, working with a certified kitchen and bath designer, along with a qualified contractor will save you time, money and headaches. Designers who specialize in kitchens and contractors have the experience, skills and resources to work with you to create the room of your dreams - on time and on budget.

Where to Begin
Look through home design magazines, visit showcase houses, and review potential designer and contractor portfolios for ideas. From there you will know what you want - a warm French Country or a sleek modern style; granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances; dark walnut or eco-friendly bamboo cabinets. The choices are only limited by your imagination.

Kitchen Remodeling

A good place to get started is to make a list of how you use your kitchen and what you'd like to change. If you had an unlimited budget, what would you do? Are you a gourmet chef who lives in the kitchen? Do you entertain frequently? Or, do you rely on take-out several times a week? Next you can begin to narrow your priorities down to determine what you can afford to do. This preparation will make it easy for your contractor to develop a plan that takes into account all your needs and that stays within your budget.

Financing Your Dream Kitchen
One of the most common ways homeowners pay for a kitchen remodel is by financing the project. Whether you tap into your home's equity, take out a home improvement loan from your bank or credit union, or take advantage of the financing available from retailers such as Home Depot or Lowes, you should be able to afford the kitchen remodeling project of your dreams.

Creating Realistic Expectations
It's important to remember that remodeling your kitchen can often take several weeks - sometimes longer if it's part of a whole house remodel. Plan for time delays and create a cushion in case costs run a bit over budget. Of course there will be some noise, mess, and inconvenience during the process. But the final product - a beautiful new kitchen - is worth the wait.
