What Adds the Most Value to a Kitchen Remodel?

Increasing your home’s value and functionality is a great idea if you plan to modernize your home or prepare it for sale. By undergoing a complete kitchen renovation, you can attract plenty of buyers, or you can spruce up the space so you and your family can enjoy it even more.

As the heart of the home, you use your kitchen daily, so whether you plan to sell your home or are just looking to increase the functionality and convenience of your space, Kitchen & Bath Galleria has the insights you need to get the kitchen of your dreams.

Will a Kitchen Remodel Increase My Home’s Resale Value?

When it comes to a kitchen remodel, you can entice buyers with the functional improvements to your property. Research states that 80% of home buyers in the market are heavily influenced by a newly finished kitchen when it comes to valuing and selecting your property.

The standard return on investment for a mid-range kitchen remodel is around 50% to 60 % of your overall remodeling budget. Smaller kitchen remodels have an estimated 75%-80% return on investment.

When looking at the impact of a kitchen remodel on potential home buyers, you also need to look at the “joy score.” Prospective homebuyers are likely to receive happiness from a newly remodeled kitchen. On a scale of one to 10, potential homeowners are likely to experience a joy score of 10 when it comes to having a fully remodeled kitchen area.

How do I Determine My Kitchen Remodeling Budget?

Before you can begin choosing appliances and paint colors, you need to first determine your home kitchen remodeling budget. You need to consider whether you want custom cabinets, what type of appliances you plan to replace, countertop materials, and more.
For a professionally redone kitchen, homeowners can expect to pay, on average, anywhere from $4,500 up to $60,000. The national average for a complete kitchen remodel is $25,000.

When budgeting for your kitchen remodel, we recommend that you make a list of your renovation priorities and set aside 20% of your budget to account for any surprise costs. You also need to determine how you plan to pay for your renovations and choose a budget you are comfortable with, and stick to it.

The team at Kitchen & Bath Galleria has extensive insight and experience in kitchen remodeling, so we can help you complete your project in a cost-effective manner. We will work closely with you to help provide you with an accurate quote that meets your budget.

Kitchen Remodeling Updates to Boost Your Home’s Value

Here are some of the top kitchen remodeling updates you can make to add value to your home:

Countertop Updates

There are a variety of countertop materials to suit your aesthetic needs and budget. Granite and quartz slab countertops are beautiful choices but do carry a higher price tag. If you are on a tight budget, you may consider cheaper materials such as granite remnants, tiles, laminates, or Formica. These materials will still provide a stunning look with a lower price tag.

Our experienced team will learn your needs and can make recommendations for the best countertop material for your lifestyle.

Refresh or Replace Your Cabinets

If you have room in your budget and your cabinet structure has seen better days, consider splurging on custom cabinets to replace them. If your cabinet structure is sound and no mold or water damage is present, you can reface your cabinets and update the hardware for a refreshed look at a fraction of the cost!
Whether you opt for new cabinet installation or cabinet refacing, our team of in-house contractors can help you choose the best option for your kitchen remodeling project.

Add a Tile Backsplash

If you are looking for a way to complement the other elements of your kitchen remodeling project, we recommend adding a tile backsplash with geometric patterns and complementary colors.
This is a reasonably priced addition to your kitchen that will look great and add interest to the space! We can install a seamless backsplash that matches your countertops or one that complements the color of your cabinets. The possibilities are endless with a tile backsplash!

Implement a New Sink and Faucet

With a new sink counter and faucet, you are sure to impress guests and possible home buyers. This is a high-traffic part of your kitchen, so by upgrading it, you can not only make it more pleasing to the eye, but you can also make it more convenient and functional to use.

Brighten the Space with Light Fixture Upgrades

Great lighting can have a major impact on how your kitchen looks and functions. With the right lighting, you can enhance the colors and textures of all the elements in your kitchen remodel for a stunning appearance.
From ceiling lighting and recessed lighting to cabinet lighting and more, there are a variety of ways to add beauty and function to your space with the right lighting.
