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.
The answers to these questions will help you to decide, first, if you should remodel your kitchen, and second, how you should remodel your kitchen. A kitchen design center will have experts on hand to answer any of your specific questions. It's worth your time to consult a specialist early in the decision making process of remodeling your kitchen. But, here are some generic answers to the above questions.
The market is swarming with an array of kitchen designers who may bring authentic kitchen designs to the table. However, the kitchen designer who keeps in mind your needs, lifestyle, and budget as well as providing genuine solutions is what you should be looking for.
Any kitchen layout can be changed, the question is: How much will you spend to make the changes? You should consider changing the layout of your kitchen if your house is more than 20 to 30 years old because kitchen functions and prominence have changed over time; or if, after living in your house for a while, you find the layout needs to be improved.
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.
