For avid cooks, seasoned hosts, and busy families alike, the kitchen is the center of daily life—and a place where both beauty and function are more important than ever. I for one think this should be more of a guideline than a rule, as I totally ignored it in our kitchen and couldn’t be happier (if we’re being nitpicky, I have the skinniest work triangle ever). With the competitive real estate market that we have been experiencing the past few years, a kitchen remodel is a good way to add value to your home.
If you plan to sell your home shortly after the remodel, you shouldn’t spend too much money on it. The rule of thumb is that you should spend between 5 and 15 percent of their home’s total value on your kitchen remodel. The average cost of a kitchen remodel in Minneapolis is approximately $12,900 to $32,700.
My husband and I did not set an exact amount specifically for the kitchen, as we had one larger budget to renovate all areas of our fixer-upper. Allowing one company to oversee your kitchen remodeling project saves you money and headaches. The background may be brick to give it an expensive feel with yet a warm and inviting feel to your kitchen.
Those polled in the Report” gave their new kitchen a Joy Score of 9.8 — a rating based on those who said they were happy or satisfied with their remodeling, with 10 being the highest rating and 1 the lowest. It shapes how much can be accomplished with a kitchen remodel, the materials available, how much professional help to call in, and what the final product will look like, among other aspects.
We were in a very similar situation when we bought our fixer-upper: The kitchen was a dark box with U-shaped arranged cabinets – lower and upper! I have never had a dissatified customer in over twenty years of remodeling and I intend to keep it this way. A new countertop is also a great idea when thinking of ideas for kitchen remodeling.
