Whether you are considering a large-scale renovation or a small one, remodeling a kitchen may give you a great return on investment. In fact, one recent study estimated the return on investment for even a minor kitchen remodel to be a whopping 87 percent, and a major kitchen remodel came in just under at 80 percent. With figures like these to ease your mind, finally updating that old, dysfunctional kitchen may seem like a much more reasonable and sensible thing to do. Here are some kitchen remodeling ideas to get you started on the path to increasing the value of your home:
The Right Cabinetry Makes All the Difference
The kitchen cabinets you choose can have a huge impact on the overall look of your remodeled kitchen. Installing poor quality, cookie-cutter cabinets may save you money now, but it will not increase the value of your home in the long run. Custom cabinetry also offers a variety of additional storage options, which is a definite plus when trying to sell your home.
Don’t Scrimp on Countertops
Countertops take a lot of abuse. That is why it is important to go with quality materials that will withstand daily use and abuse. Choosing countertops made from quartz or granite will cost you more than a laminate countertop. However, that low-quality laminate top will start to look worn out in a few years, whereas quartz or stone will remain looking new for years to come.
Keep the Existing Layout
The number one factor that can cause the cost of your remodel to spiral out of control is changing the basic layout of your kitchen. By keeping your kitchen’s major appliances, sink and fixtures in the same spot, you’ll save a lot of money on plumbing and electrical costs. The money you save by keeping the existing layout of your kitchen can be redirected to custom cabinetry and quality countertops.
