The kitchen is normally the most expensive room in the home. It’s where most of your appliances reside and where people tend to spend a lot of time. A kitchen remodel is an investment in your home. I have lived through my own personal kitchen remodel, countless kitchen remodels working at Woodtryst, and as a realtor, I have seen what works and what doesn’t in the kitchen. I wanted to share some of what I have learned to help you with your remodel. It’s a very expensive investment and it requires a bit of research so you don’t waste you money.
Here are my 5 dos and don’ts in a kitchen remodel, starting with the dos:
1. Hire a designer
2. Hire the right contractor
3. Choose the right custom cabinet company
4. Choose appropriately-sized appliances.
5. Pick a style that’s timeless as opposed to trendy
This is a hard one to follow, but if you want your kitchen to be an investment as apposed to a splurge, you have to follow it. I love all the gold right now, but I do remember the brass fixtures from the ’90s and think they look so dated. In 10 years when you want to sell your home, you don’t want someone coming in and looking at your big investment and saying it has to go because it’s so 2017!
