What is the average cost to remodel a kitchen?
The cost of a kitchen remodel can vary widely depending on the extent of the remodel and the type of products used. There are a number of aspects of a kitchen remodel that contribute to cost, including design and installation fees, cabinetry and hardware, appliances and ventilation, doors and windows, and many more. Depending on which parts of your kitchen you elect to remodel and which products you decide to install, the cost of a kitchen remodel can be as low as $5,000 or as high as $50,000, with most remodels falling somewhere in between the $12,000 and $32,000 range.
How long does a kitchen remodel take?
The time it takes to complete a kitchen remodel is highly dependent on the size and complexity of the kitchen space and the extent of the remodel itself. Most kitchen remodels are completed in 6-8 weeks.
What are the dos and don’ts when remodeling a kitchen?
- Do your research. You can never have too many consultations.
- Maximize your space; consider the technical layout of your kitchen.
- Budget to exceed by at least 10%
- Keep your receipts
- Don’t rush through the planning and design phase
- Don’t price yourself out of the neighborhood
- Don’t settle for DIY installation or cheap, fly-by-night contracting
Does kitchen remodeling require a permit?
Only some components of a kitchen remodel require a permit. These include demolishing a load-bearing wall, installing new electrical wiring or circuits, installing any new exterior windows or doors that require a new opening and plumbing that requires running new plumbing supply and drain lines.
Does a kitchen remodel add value to your home?
Absolutely, however, when planning your remodel, it is important to not price yourself out of the neighborhood. Spending too much on your remodel may mean that you won’t get that money back when you go to sell your house, simply because the market value of the property isn’t enough to give you a full return on your investment.
Are kitchen remodels tax deductible?
Home improvements are considered personal expenses and are generally nondeductible. However, when the time comes around to sell your home, the money you spent on home improvements can reduce the amount of taxes you pay on the profit. The costs of home improvements are added to your home’s “basis,” or the amount of investment in your home for tax purposes. The greater your basis, the less you’ll be taxed.
