Are you considering a kitchen remodel? Know this…you could regain up to 70 percent of the costs with the added value it adds to your home! On top of that, you can greatly improve the overall functionality of your kitchen, reduce energy consumption, improve safety, and just make creating evening meals a lot more fun. But where do you begin?


How do I start to remodel my kitchen?

Let’s start with the fact that kitchen remodels can be costly. The average cost nationwide is nearly $24,000 or $150 per square foot according to Home Advisor. Averages aside, most homeowners drop between $12,630 and $35,126 for a kitchen remodel. Costs vary depending on space, size, materials, change orders, and more. So it pays to do some in-depth planning before embarking on a kitchen makeover. Here are some key considerations.

Determine Your Needs

Start by determining what you really want. Do you need to increase the size of your kitchen because you have a big family? Are you looking for a better flow, so you have a better view of your children in another room? Are you looking to create a better space for entertaining guests with the kitchen as the hub? All of these considerations come into play during a kitchen renovation.

Determine Your Budget

Unless you have limitless funds, it’s best to establish your budget upfront. Don’t get carried away. With all the selections available for countertops, appliances, lighting, cabinetry, and other essentials, you don’t have to compromise on quality to get the kitchen you’ve dreamed of. Make sure you leave some contingencies in your budget in the event you run into issues or would just like to upgrade on certain features.

Determine Your Style

Embrace your style. Do you like dark colors? Light colors? Are you traditional, contemporary, rustic, or eclectic? These decisions will not only impact your materials in the form of cabinetry, countertops, and appliances but also your costs.

Schedule a Design Consult

For a small kitchen remodel, it probably makes sense to go it alone and use the money you’d pay a design consultant on upgrading materials instead. But if you’re planning a much larger remodeling project, it makes great sense to consult with a designer. Kitchen designers are skilled at orchestrating solutions to potential problems and providing design insights you might never consider. So in the long run, the added expense might well be worth the investment.
