The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where your family comes together after a busy day to share a beautifully prepared meal. Your family connects and discusses the details of their day. So, you want to have a delightful and convenient kitchen for your family. Kitchen renovations are a great way to add value to your home if you are thinking of selling or an amazing way to enhance your family’s enjoyment of the space. No matter the reason for the renovations, it’s going to cost you a pretty penny to fix up. For that reason people find themselves wondering if renovations are truly worth it. We are here to help you answer that question.


If you are wanting to put your home on the market, you want renovations that sell. The best approach would be to focus on getting back the maximum return on your investment. You should start by having your home be inspected for any possible issues to repair, before starting any major renovation projects. When potential buyers are walking through a home they have high expectations for the kitchen. People want a kitchen that they can have family time in and where they can host guests in. If your kitchen is small and outdated, it may be smart to update the space. Kitchen cabinets and faucets are the first to be outdated. With new cabinets come new countertops, which are the second most popular kitchen remodel. By upgrading the cabinets, countertops, appliances and painting can significantly add value to your home, which in turn becomes an investment.


No matter how big or small the job may seem, it will still cost a decent chunk of change. If you are wanting to only update the countertops and a few other outdated pieces but keep the pre-existing footprint of the kitchen, you’re looking to spend around $35,000 to $55,000. If you are wanting to completely renovate the kitchen and gut the entire space to create a “ready to move in” kitchen, you’re going to spend anywhere between $80,000 to &120,000. The beneficial part of spending money to sell is that you are going to get about 60 to 80 percent of the remodelling money back.


After you have remodelled your kitchen either with professionals or if it was a DIY project, you may be persuaded to stay put. 90 percent of homeowners stated that they wanted to be in their homes more after a complete kitchen renovation. If you’re seriously considering remodelling any part of your home, it’s important that you design the home to fulfil your happiness as resale is not guaranteed. You may end up loving the end results so much that you decide you don’t want to move after all.


People find it hard to know where to start, or what they should renovate on a low budget.
