People often refrain from remodeling their kitchen due to the fear of unbearable costs. However, hiring a professional kitchen remodeling designer can really give you your money's worth, returning on your investment when you go to sell your home. A skilled kitchen designer will suggest excellent ideas, resources, and amenities, all within your budget and leave the final decision to you. By analyzing your family's cooking style, frequency in socializing, space and lighting effects in the kitchen, a good designer will create a suitable plan based on your budget.
There are several places online you can go to help you establish a basic budget number to start with. My personal recommendation is Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value Report which is released by region and major city each year. The really nice thing about this report is that it gives a description of the "average" project so that you can gauge if your kitchen remodel is going to fall above or below the benchmark. I also find their average pricing to be an accurate reflection of the pricing for our company, so by recommending to clients before I even meet with them that they investigate this report they are more likely to establish a realistic budget we can work within to give them a fantastic kitchen.
It is imperative you see the credentials of a kitchen designer before hiring them to redo your kitchen. A certified kitchen remodeling designer, unlike an interior decorator, should have passed some tests conducted by an organization such as the NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association). With a qualification like this under their belt, the designer is abreast with the latest technologies, trends and accessories needed to revamp your kitchen. You can search online for reputed designing companies or individual contractors. The kitchen designer, if asked, should be able to give you reliable references of previously completed projects.
