Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker C&C Properties

Thinking of renovating your kitchen? You're not alone. The kitchen is one of the most popular rooms of the house to remodel. Whether you're updating your kitchen with a fresh coat of paint and more storage or you're in for a complete overhaul, here are three questions to ask before you get out the sledgehammer.

  1. What does your dream kitchen look like? Make a list of everything you want in your ideal kitchen, including the floors, countertops, appliances, fixtures, back splash, etc. Flip through interior design magazines or look online for inspiration.
  2. How much of your dream kitchen can you afford?
  • A basic kitchen upgrade: What's included? The kitchen footprints stay intact, but the space gets a basic, DIY cosmetic makeover including new budget-friendly appliances, a lick of paint and new hardware and fixtures. Cost, on average: $5,000 to $15,000
  • A midsized renovation: What's included? It's a step above a basic upgrade that may include new flooring, cabinets, countertops and appliances in addition to new paint and fixtures. Cost, on average: $15,000 to $35,000
  • A major remodel: What's included? This is a major overhaul that involves changing the current footprint of the room, such as tearing down walls or relocating appliances. Everything in the space is new, from cabinets and appliances to hardware and fixtures. Cost, on average: $35,000 to $75,000

     3. Do you hire a professional? While most homeowners can do minor improvements themselves, it's often best to leave the bigger jobs to the professionals.


49% of homeowners planning a kitchen remodel intend to gut their existing kitchen, and 42% plan to update the existng space.
