Your Answers Will Tell You If It’s Time For A McLean Kitchen Remodel.
Are you considering a McLean kitchen remodel? Knowing when to remodel your home is half the battle between making a good investment and a bad one. Check out our three top questions to ask yourself before you take the plunge.
- Do You Plan To Move? Living and working in NOVA can come with some uncertainty – especially if you’re active duty military or envision job changes in your future. Consider retirement, downsizing, elderly parents, and similar situations when dreaming of remodeling your home. If you know you’re going to move in two years, it may not make sense to remodel your kitchen – unless you’re trying to boost the resale value of your home. If that’s the case, go into your project with a lower budget and fewer expectations to recoup more of your investment when you sell.
- What Is Your Ultimate Goal? Think about what you like or don’t like about your kitchen? Is it the way it looks or functions, or maybe both? When you’re cooking, think about the flow of your space. Can you access pots and pans near your range or cooktop? Is there plenty of room for baking dishes, cups and appliances? If you want to eliminate cabinetry to create a more open-concept kitchen, think about where you can put those important items. We’ll help you design the kitchen of your dreams, but thinking about these elements before starting enables you to develop realistic expectations for your new space.
- How Much Are You Willing To Pay For It? There are so many ways to finance your kitchen remodel. You can pull from savings or take out a loan, but you want to know how much money you’re willing to invest in your kitchen. Many analysts recommend investing between 5 and 15% of your home’s value into your project. A house that runs $600,000 would put your remodel between $30,000-$90,000. The average return on investment (ROI) for a kitchen remodel runs about 50%. Make peace with those numbers, and you’ll find the perfect solution for your McLean kitchen remodel.
