You are ready to give your Kitchen a new face but you are very concerned because in doing something, such as a home improvement projects, requires information. There are many people out there who are not certain what they should do, where to begin and if they should do it on their own. When it comes to making a plan or deciding a strategy, many folks focus on the good and the bad of the project, in other words the pros and the cons. Let’s talk about the pros in remodeling your kitchen. One of the major pros is the limitless ways and many advantages from having your kitchen remodeled.
Besides stopping your spouse from asking for a new kitchen, the most beneficiary pro to having your kitchen remodeled is boosting your home’s value. I prefer to use the word boost than increase, because when you remodel your Kitchen unless the job is done very poorly, your home value in some instances could boost all the way up to 70%. Boosting your home equity up to 70% however, takes skills and know how. Skills means professionals or a guiding professional over your shoulder. Know how means that taking in consideration the geographical location of your home and the real estate market value in your area as well as the final outcome of meeting the market demands. Experience real estate agents, or general contractors can provide you with the information you need to get to a maximum realistic targeting number. When it comes to kitchen remodeling the first step is to set your priorities straight. If you do not do that, you are running a high risk of tossing your money away. Consider the most important essentials in order to benefit as much as you can.
When you put your thoughts together in order to vision your kitchen, you must utilize the three most important categories. Ironically, the same categories will be the final end result:
A. Home Value
B. Esthetic appearance
I used to think that most homeowners would start remodeling a kitchen because of their interest to gaining home value and better their living. Until a friend of mind, just recently, completed an extensive research as to the most important reason homeowners remodel their Kitchens and Bathrooms, and his discoveries got a lot of heads spinning, including mine. I admit, I am embarrassed to write in my cons article that I was conned by my own students and costumers. Will talk about this at my “Kitchen Remodeling Cons” Article.
Back to the remodeling our Kitchen. So, we remodel our kitchen because it’s too old, not as functional, we want to boost our home equity, updated the appliances, get cabinets that provide more storage and better looks, we need more space, nicer counters, new floors, etc. Some homeowners want the 21st century Kitchen with all the trimmings and they go all the way. Others, choose to change a small section of their kitchen by simply changing either the kitchen countertops, the cabinets, the sink, or the floor tiles, etc. Some homeowners will just put a fresh coat of deferent color paint on the walls and their kitchen may look like a new kitchen as long as it is not as old.
Another one of the limitless pros to kitchen remodeling is who will do this job. As a homeowner, you have absolute power over what you want done and who will get it done. You can remodel your own kitchen, you can hire a professional to do it for you. You also have the absolute power to who you employ to remodel your kitchen, as well as how much you want to spend. Weather, you want a professional to do some of the work and you do the rest, or just do repairs it’s all on your plate.
