Tips For Remodeling Your Kitchen

A kitchen remodel is one of the best things you can do for your home value. With an updated kitchen, your house can go from ho-hum to wow-worthy. The problem is that the kitchen is also one of the most expensive rooms to remodel.

So you can make the most of your renovation without ending with an expensive mess on your hands, use these kitchen remodeling tips.

  • Understand Your Market: One of the biggest mistakes people make is putting too much or too little money into their remodel. This can price you out of your local market, making it impossible to sell down the road. To ensure your budget makes sense, check out neighborhood comparisons.
  • Stay With Your Style: You may love the look of a rustic cottage kitchen, but if you are in a sleek, modern home it just does not make sense. Keep in line with your home’s architecture and style to make sure your kitchen fits with the rest of your house.
  • Minimize Your Pipe Movement: The more gas and water lines you move, the pricier your remodel will be. Do what you can to keep pipe-connected elements in the same places to keep your renovation costs under control.
  • Keep Your Cabinets: Just because your cabinets are tired looking does not mean you need to trash them! If their wood is still in good shape, you can lightly sand and repaint them to make them look like they just rolled out of the factory. Updated hardware will help spruce them up, too.

Instead of taking on all of the work and expense of a kitchen remodel, why not buy a home that already has your dream kitchen? To take a look at homes in Chino Hills and neighboring California cities that will wow you, contact John & Michelle.
