Most homeowners are aware that remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms is the best way to add value to a home. These are important areas that experience a lot of wear and tear and appliances and even tile colors can become outdated. Unfortunately, most people don’t have to budget to completely overhaul their kitchen and bathrooms. For homeowners on a budget, there are affordable remodeling options that will add value.
In 2018, the average cost of remodeling a 200-square-foot-kitchen was around $64,000. The includes fully renovating cabinets, countertops, an island, sink faucet, and adding new appliances, flooring, and lighting. Of course, it is possible to spend way more than that bringing a kitchen up-to-date. In fact, 10% of homeowners spent over $100,000 on a new kitchen.
