Factor 2 Wow! - This has everything to do with your goals and motivations. Write down each motivational factor which is important to you in a kitchen remodel. Here are some possible examples: Kitchen is falling apart. You love to cook and the layout doesn't suit you. You love to entertain and want to open up the kitchen as a place to gather. You want a kitchen that wows your guests. You are getting ready to sell your home and the kitchen is a sticking point with buyers... Now that you have your list, evaluate which motivations are most important and relist them in motivational order. Imagining your budget starting in "the middle" take note of which factors might move the budget up or down...i.e. wanting to remodel to encourage a sale might move the budget down, remodeling to wow guest might max it out
A kitchen designer will be familiar with all the newest trends in kitchen designs, know the latest options in green materials, and be up to date with new products for the kitchen. Their knowledge will save you a lot of legwork or computer searching, if decide to remodel your kitchen. If you begin your kitchen remodeling project by consulting with a kitchen designer, I think you'll be surprised with the insight they will give your whole kitchen project.
Choose the unsuitable kitchen remodeler, and your project could possibly be a nightmare that ultimately ends up costing much more time and funds than forecasted, stressing you with incidents, errors and code violations, and leaving you having a kitchen that may not necessarily end up being as functional or attractive as you'd been assured at the begin of this project. Pick out the appropriate kitchen remodeler, though, and it is possible to expect a process that progresses effortlessly and without terrible surprises.
Factor 1 Home Value- Consider not only what you think your home is worth, but also the value of similar homes in your neighborhood that already have updates. My favorite website to check home values is zillow.com, simply enter your address and you get an interactive map with home values and other information listed right on the map. Take note of which homes are of similar size to yours, have been purchased more recently, but have a higher value, then peek in their windows to see what the house looks like. Ok, seriously, I was only kidding. If you don't know them perhaps it's time to meet the neighbors and ask for a quick tour.
A word of caution: I spent several hours researching kitchen remodeling cost and budgeting on the internet to gather data for this article. I ran into a couple websites that gave square footage pricing for kitchen remodeling. Although I commiserate with their attempt to find a simple method to figure out remodeling pricing, this type of advice is not based in reality. Remodeling jobs in general are so specific to the conditions of the building and tastes of the homeowner that no square footage pricing will ever be realistic. I also ran into many sites that did not give you any real information about establishing a budget but basically interpreted Hanley Wood's Remodeling Cost vs. Value report which is published each year. You are much better off visiting the Cost vs. Value report online and evaluating the results for yourself.
