If you want to get the most value for your money in a renovation of your home, then you should focus your remolding budget on your kitchen. This is the area that will increase the value of your home the most, and there are three things to focus on to accomplish this.
Replace the cabinets
You may not need to replace the cabinets. Sometimes resurfacing them and changing the color and handles for the cabinet doors can work wonders. However, even simple, low cost work can add value to the appearance of the kitchen.
Replace the floors
Retiling the floor with ceramic or stone tiles can make a dramatic change in the appearance of the kitchen. There are a great many designs to choose from, and the cost of installing tile is low compared to the construction costs of a major remodeling project.
Replacing the appliances
If you plan on selling your home in the near future, you will find that having new appliances in your kitchen is a great selling point. Not only will this add value to your home, but it will also help move the house more quickly. A new stove, dishwasher and refrigerator are a must. If you can install a built in microwave oven, you will make the kitchen even more attractive.
Once you have decided on which “renovations for my home” you are looking to do, the next step is to consult with a local contractor and get a quote. A contractor can also be a good source of low cost remodeling ideas.
