Things Nobody Tells You About Renovating Your Kitchen
We cover many kitchen remodeling Houston tips and tricks that may not be obvious to first-timers... and even share some things that even experienced renovators may be shocked to discover. We'll be discussing the most important project a homeowner can undertake: a kitchen renovation. Here are eight things that you need to consider, from the outlets to the top.
1. It's (extremely) costly.
Remodeling magazine estimates that $66,000 is the average national cost for a complete, mid-range kitchen makeover. How much does an average "upscale" remodel run? It can cost as much as $131,000 in certain cases. Homeadvisor.com reports that the most expensive items include cabinetry and hardware (29%), installation (17%), and appliances and ventilation (14%). Remodeling states that a complete remodel won't increase resale values. In fact, they estimate that house sellers will only recoup 60% of remodeling expenses.
Kitchen remodeling is a case of working smarter and not harder. To make the most of your space, you can leave it as is.
2. Take into account who will be coming along for dinner.
Take the age-old icebreaker "Who would I invite to a dinner?" You will be hosting eight extravagant dinner parties every weekend. Are you a parent who has to feed little children every night? Or are you more comfortable eating alone? Are you more inclined to cook or bake? When making renovation choices, consider your culinary preferences and the people who will use your kitchen. Two ovens might be a good option if you are able to cook and bake simultaneously or host parties frequently.

3. The choice of countertops is both aesthetic and practical.
Keep in mind the person you want to be in your kitchen's future when choosing countertops. If you don't mind the material being maintained and won't always look perfect, marble or soapstone can be a good choice. If you are on a budget, however, these materials might not be possible. Are you ready for the ultimate guide to help you choose the right one? These are five questions you should ask when choosing kitchen countertops.
4. You should consider a wall-mounted faucet.
It is easy to be tempted just to buy a basic, deck-mounted faucet without giving it much thought. A wall-mounted faucet, such as Julie's in Brooklyn Heights, is a small decision that can have a huge impact. One, it will make your space much more clean and dry.

5. Your project's less glamorous aspects can either make or break it.
You should also ensure adequate ventilation. Learn more about Ceiling-Mounted Recessed Vents for Kitchens. You don't want a beautiful kitchen that smells or makes it difficult to use the mixer.
6. Ikea cabinets are easy to modify.
There are many styles of cabinets to choose from. Do not get overwhelmed by the number of choices. You only need to be familiar with six types of cabinets when you want timeless, durable aesthetics. Many new companies are modifying Ikea cabinets, so if you're looking for something more economical but still personal, we recommend Ikea Kitchen Upgrade: There are 11 custom cabinet manufacturers to choose from.
7. It's more difficult for a double-bowl to clean than a one-bowl.
For instance, a single-bowl basin sink is more compact and will fit in a smaller space. A double-bowl kitchen sink allows you to wash dishes and divide them, wash dirty plates and keep the disposal at your fingertips. You can compare the benefits and drawbacks of single-bowl and double-bowl sinks in your kitchen to help you make the right decision.
