Know The Costs & You’ll Be Prepared For Your McLean Kitchen Remodel.

A well-executed kitchen remodel in McLean, VA, is one of the smartest investments you can make in your home. Whether you’re planning to stay put or move in the next couple of years, the average ROI on a mid to high-end renovation can be as high as 75%. Get started planning your dream project by understanding how to allocate your budget.

  • Cabinetry: If you’re planning to remodel your kitchen, start budgeting by looking at cabinetry. Custom cabinets can make up as much as half of your budget and they tend to be the most difficult to replace, so spend wisely by choosing a classic color and lasting door style. Plus, the heavy impact of constant use means this is not the place to skimp. While you can replace a countertop in five years or a fridge in three, you’re looking at another major project to replace the cabinetry.
  • Appliances: If you’re looking at double ovens, a commercial refrigerator, and a gas range with either a heavy-duty hood or downdraft set-up, be prepared to spend a decent chunk of change on the appliances. Stainless steel is the most popular finish and while it does cost more, it also delivers a better return on your investment.
  • Countertops: Depending on the material you choose, you could spend as much on your countertops as you do on the appliances. Some rare stones cost more than prevalent granites like Uba Tuba or even Absolute Black. Pick those out when you choose your cabinetry and you’ll be better able to evaluate the budget and make accommodations, if necessary.
