How Much Value Does A Kitchen Remodel Add to Your Gilbert Home

Gilbert Kitchen Remodel

Whether it’s Yahoo Finance, Forbes, TLC Home, Bankrate, or HGTV, every finance, real estate, and design expert will tell you that the single greatest way to raise home value is to upgrade the kitchen. The kitchen is where the family spends most of their time, it should be a functioning, clean, open space good for not just cooking, but entertaining, homework, and romantic evenings.

Because everyone naturally gravitates to the kitchen, it needs to be the pinnacle of the entire home. By simply adding some granite countertops and cabinet space, you can increase the overall value of your Gilbert home dramatically.

There are not many home projects that will give you an 80 to 100 percent return on your investment like a well designed kitchen remodel.

Where to Start

Getting started is the hardest part. Who do you turn to? Do you want granite countertops or something else? White or cherry cabinets? Follow these easy tips to your future kitchen remodel.

  • In order to get the best bang for your buck, you need to invite a few different design experts to your home. Have them walk through your entire home, not just the kitchen, to get a better idea of how your family functions and get a feel for the flow of the home.
  • Make a list of the things that you dislike about your current kitchen. Is there enough cabinet space? (There rarely ever is). Are the countertops durable? Are the floors durable? Do you have an island? Is there enough cooking area? When the family hangs out in the kitchen, is there enough room? How’s the lighting?
  • Are you looking at a full kitchen remodel or just a surface-level remodel?
  • Make a list of all the things you wish your kitchen had. This is your dream list, so don’t hold back. Just because you make the list doesn’t mean you’ll get everything on it, but go all out.
  • Design time is definitely the most stressful aspect of the entire remodel. This is where you need to rely on the expertise of the designer that you have chosen. Meet with them over many occasions, go over many different design ideas, and work with as many different layouts as possible from the L-Shape to U-Shape, with islands and without islands.
  • Talk to a local real estate expert when considering your Gilbert kitchen remodel. Local realtors will have a great awareness regarding how extensive your remodel should be, what layouts are the most popular, and how much you should expect to spend to get a good return.
