A kitchen remodel project is by far our most popular service and one that takes some really great planning in order to pull it off. Everyone knows that the party always ends up in the kitchen as it is one of the most important areas of your home. If you have the budget, it really is a must do as statistics show that a kitchen remodel is one of the top things you can do to your home and get the highest return on your investment.
It’s also a fact that over 45% of all homeowners have remodeled their kitchen because they just couldn’t stand the site of the old one. Even just a minor kitchen remodel can get back around 98-1/2% return once the property is sold. Major kitchen remodels don’t get back as high as numbers but they do get a return for your investment. All in all, if you can put the funds together to do the kitchen remodel, make sure and get it done….you won’t regret it whatsoever.
Well that’s pretty obvious – it’s the amount of items that are being upgraded as well as the actual cost of the kitchen remodeling project and what is the scope of the labor in the job. So a minor remodeling job for an average 200 square foot kitchen would be to do things like put in new wood cabinets, laminate countertops, change out the sink and faucet, paint and maybe some new backsplash. That’s going to definitely hit the bank account hard on average about $64,000. That also includes new appliances as well as upgraded lighting and flooring.
The major kitchen remodel projects can go well above $100,000. That’s when you start doing things like custom kitchen cabinets, tile backsplash, granite or quartz countertops, adding islands and re-designing the entire look and feel, painting and flooring. Once a major re-design is in the works, electrical and plumbing most likely need to be moved. If there is natural gas in the property, that will probably need to be adjusted too. At Las Vegas Remodel Contractor, we can handle either project. There is no kitchen remodel job that is too small or too large – we’ve got all the bases covered so you don’t have to do a thing.
Hands down, the kitchen cabinets are the most pricey item to replace. There are some very high end cabinets available in this market and some are high gloss or veneer. These will definitely but a dent in your budget but are really the focal point of any kitchen remodel. Running in second place is the appliances. If you are doing a complete kitchen remodel, we suggest upgrading the appliances at that time. The reasoning here is you don’t want to take the chance of damaging a countertop or cabinet installing a new appliance after the kitchen has been newly remodeled. Countertops come in third but with new available products, they are becoming a large expense as well.
We can lay out a kitchen remodel project that fits within your budget and show you products that you can afford. Once we know a number for your budget, our design team will work with you to show you products you can afford. We’ll never show you items out of your budget as we want you to be as happy as possible throughout the entire process. You can also visit our About page for more information.
It’s always interesting how colors for kitchen change through the years. We are still utilizing the basics like different tones of greys and of course the traditional white. Recently, we’ve noticed a trend that tends to move towards darker jewel tones like navy or royal blue. Sea green and different faux wood tones, both light and dark are popular as well. There’s also the natural look with a pop of color either in the backsplash or even the appliances. The majority of our kitchen remodels pick a color of cabinets and then carry that color theme throughout the home. This gives the property a clean, sleek appearance and is easy on the eyes.
As for trends in kitchen remodeling – there is a variety of sources that are hitting the kitchens these days. “Sustainable” and “Eco-friendly” are terms often used these days and they are usually in cabinets and shelving. Having open shelves versus cabinets is very popular too. What we are really seeing is hand painted tiles that have beautiful colors and patterns on them being used for the backsplash.
As for appliances, we are doing a ton of pizza oven additions in our kitchen renovations. Believe it or not, fireplaces are very popular too. Pot fillers that go over the stove top can be very helpful so you’re not dragging heavy pots filled with water through the kitchen. These come in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes.
