Doing a small or major kitchen remodel can be an excellent way to add value to your home. When considering this project you should keep the following things in mind:
Don’t overdo it. Your investment in your dream kitchen can become very expensive. So expensive that you may have too nice of a space for what your real estate values in your neighborhood can bear. It’s important to create a space you will love, but you don’t want to put a lot of money into something with poor return on investment. A good example is cabinets. Custom cabinetry may be your preference but you may be just as happy with a semi-custom cabinet.
A good builder/designer with experience in your area should also be able to help you make good decisions on what products to use and where to set some limits. Reetz Builders LLC takes the time to sit down with you and go over your ideas to help you maximize your budget for great results. Our goal for our customers is to make the experience fun and positive but to also educate our customer so that they make sound choices on materials and finishes.
When it comes to financing your dream kitchen remodeling project or just an update to an outdated kitchen space, remember to allow extra money for contingencies. Contingencies are unforeseen situations that a builder cannot predict. Generally 10-15% of your budget should be set aside as a contingency fund.
