Budget

While we know saving money is important, it is equally as important to factor the cost of quality materials and labor into your budget. Additionally, it is worth noting that a quality remodeling job adds value to your home, so spending more on quality work benefits you in the long run.

Typically, you should expect to spend between $35k to as high as $150k for your kitchen remodel depending on the size and scope of the project. Typically, they average around $45k-$55k. Keep this in mind when budgeting.

Evaluate Your Needs

While making your kitchen modern and fashionable is one of the primary goals of your remodeling project, don’t forget you will need to use your kitchen often! Functionality is a critical part of any home remodel. Consider features that would make cooking/using your kitchen more convenient. Additionally, consider what features you do not like about your kitchen that you would like to change/remove. Create a priority list and tie it to your budget.

There is only so much money to go around, so allocate your funds first by functional features. Anything leftover can then be spent on stylish options!

Timeline

Quality takes time, so keep this in mind when planning your remodeling project. Typically, kitchen remodeling projects take between 3 to 6 months to complete, depending on how extensive the work is and the size of the kitchen. Expect to undertake a lengthy project, and plan accordingly. Additionally, your kitchen will be out of use for a long period of time. You will either need to find a different place to cook your meals or plan on eating out while the project is underway. Many people set up a temporary kitchen consisting of a small refrigerator, a microwave, and also utilize an outdoor grill. Decide what works for you!

Design

This is the fun part! Feel free to be adventurous when designing your new space. Browse current trends and decide what style suits you, and the rest of your house, the best. Designers are extremely helpful when trying to incorporate trends with the current design of your home. Working with a designer also takes the weight off your own shoulders by letting a trusted professional do what they do best.
