Let Us Start With the Topic of Resale Value
With a kitchen remodel, it can be a dizzying experience to have to choose so many features all at once.
However, having a clear picture of everything involved in your kitchen design and remodeling project can give you a major advantage of minimizing any last-minute, nerve-racking decisions.
At Republic West Remodeling, we understand that kitchen remodeling can be an intimidating prospect, from planning the layout to selecting flooring and appliances. Here are several aspects to take into account if you are remodeling your kitchen:
We often hear from customers, asking us, “Will kitchen remodeling add value to my home?”
We believe that the kitchen is the most essential part of a home to remodel. With this idea in mind, your home’s value typically increases with kitchen design and remodeling.
In fact, depending on the housing market and the type of improvements made, kitchen remodeling can yield the most significant return on overall investment.
Keep in mind that there will always be particular amenities that you will want no matter what the return. You should carefully consider creating a balance between your personal “must-have” items and a list of elements that will ultimately enhance your home’s overall value.
As you start the research process, think about functionality, various product lines, and alternative materials to include the elements you prefer, without bringing down the value of your investment.
Determine Your Budget
Finances play an essential role in any home remodeling project. Knowing what you can comfortably afford to pay for a kitchen remodel is a key consideration before you forge ahead with a plan.
We suggest always asking for a consultation and project estimate in writing to determine what your budget will allow.
At Republic West Remodeling, we realize that every kitchen remodeling project is unique. We provide a detailed scope of work and corresponding cost for every customer before you make any decisions.
Pay Attention to Kitchen Remodeling Colors and Trends
Kitchens have changed a lot over the last several decades, and staying on top of popular trends is important.
For example, with their modern, clean look, white and grey seem to be the two big cabinet colors for 2018. There is another dramatic, rich color palette also gradually making its way into the kitchen: dark jewel tones, like plum, navy, and emerald green.
Many of this year’s trends focus on convenience to make kitchens function better. Here are a few of the latest concepts:
- Refrigerators featuring “view-inside” elements
- Smart appliances enabled with Wi-Fi, including refrigerators and dishwashers
- Dishwashers that include three racks and steam cleaning options
- Deep sinks, such as farmhouse and under-mount sinks
- Pull-down kitchen faucets with high arcs, and hands-free and motion-sensor faucets
- Storage features, such as rollouts, pullouts, cutlery drawers, and spice organizers.
- Lighting inside the cabinets and under-cabinet lighting
- Quartz as a top choice for countertops, followed by granite, butcher block, and marble
- Large-format tile flooring or wood plank-style flooring in porcelain tile and luxury vinyl tile
