Limit spending on the kitchen remodeling to about 15 - 20 percent of your home's value. According to the National Association of Home Builders, updating and remodeling your kitchen will add more value than any other improvement. Even if you plan on moving at some point after the remodel, don't forget that kitchen projects add more value to your home than any other improvement.
A real estate agent can be a good resource when considering how extensive a kitchen remodeling project to undertake. Even if you are not considering moving, but rather want to remodel for your own satisfaction, Real Estate Agents are usually quite aware of how much previous clients have spent on remodeling and how much the value of the home increased as a result, and how much would be too much. In the past, "home remodeling" simply meant repair jobs, but modern trends and increased home improvement options have fueled a demand for homes that are customized to individual needs.
2. Take a look at the remodeler's earlier performance. Examine the firm's website to check out photos of previous projects. If there isn't a website, ask to see photographs. Because it's possible a remodeler could potentially present to you pictures of projects they have not really accomplished, you should always ask if you can talk with the actual house owners whose projects are photographed. By doing this, you not merely verify the fact that the work was indeed accomplished by the remodeler but you are able to speak to former customers regarding the quality of the work and their contentment with the remodeler coming from a workmanship viewpoint and regarding business processes. It's also a great notion to ask for both recent references and ones from longer ago. Talking to house owners about earlier projects can offer insights towards precisely how well the remodeler's work stands up over the years. Additionally, have a look at ratings and reviews for the remodeler at on-line sources such Angie's List, social media sites, Google Local Business Listings, etc. Talk about any negative reviews with the remodeler to establish if the responses raise legitimate problems.
