Kitchen Remodeling Tips

Remodeling your kitchen isn’t cheap. But you can expect to recoup much of the cost when you sell your house. Even if you don’t get all your money back, a remodeled kitchen should make your home easier to sell in a competitive market.

Cabinets are the building blocks of your kitchen. They take up the most space and have the greatest visual impact. But they can be among the most expensive parts of a remodel. However, there are ways to choose a less costly alternative so you can have a bigger budget to spend on countertops and flooring: re-facing the existing cabinets by putting new doors and drawer fronts on the frames and re-covering the frames with plywood stained or painted to match the new finish.

An easier project is replacing the kitchen countertops, with granite. Granite countertops are by far the most popular, (an engineered stone made from quartz and resin) and granite surfaces lead the pack, with prices ranging from $55 to $95 per square foot (including installation). Gages Granite comes pre-sealed includes a company granite warranty. Making sure you get the most for your money for years to come when remodeling your kitchen.

A great way to give a kitchen a new look is to add a backsplash. It’s an aspect of kitchen remodeling that is easily over-looked but it can really dress up a kitchen. Choosing matching colored marble tiles and adding under-cabinet lighting will really show off the marble’s warm tones.

To complete your kitchens remodeling project, choose an under-mount stainless steel sink. Stainless steel sinks not only enhance your granite countertops, they also are easy to maintain and complete the over all look of your new kitchen.
