Kitchens are one of the most popular rooms to remodel in the home, and kitchen remodeling is one project that can actually increase the value of your home. New kitchen cabinets can transform a drab kitchen turning it into a fantastic, bright space which is the heart of the home.
In fact, minor kitchen remodeling is one of the most valuable projects you can do on a home. A minoe kitchen remodeling project means cabinet refacing, also known as new cabinet fronts, as well as new hardware plus replacement countertops and the like.
Homeowners spend more money on kitchen remodeling than on any other home improvement project. And if done right, a kitchen remodel can recoup much of its cost. A minor kitchen remodel of about $18,500 can recoup 75% of your investment when you sell your home, according to the most recent Cost vs. Value data from Remodeling magazine.
To keep costs down, keep the same footprint. Changing the location of the plumbing and electrical will drive up the cost of the remodeling project fast. So if possible, keep appliances, water fixtures, and walls in the same location. Keeping the same footprint allows you to more easily keep the same cabinets as well. Kitchen cabinet refacing will keep costs down, and dramatically decrease the price of cabinets. Not only will you save on demolition and reconstruction costs, you’ll cut the amount of dust and debris your project generates.
