Kitchens are a focal point and typically the most well-used room in the house. People who enjoy cooking want lots of working space and easy access to appliances, food and cooking utensils. Even those who prefer quick-preparation meals spend a lot of time in the kitchen with family and friends. Remodeling an outdated kitchen is one of the best home improvement projects for adding resale value to a home. You will also experience greater enjoyment living in the house with an updated kitchen and new energy-efficient appliances.
Midrange kitchen remodel
When you live in a house for 30 to 40+ years you push your kitchen to the limit – appliances wear out, the cabinet finish looks old and outdated, and you’d like more usable space. A standard kitchen remodel involves gutting the existing space and installing new energy-efficient appliances, raised-panel wood cabinets, countertops (e.g. replace laminate with solid-surface or granite), and a new sink and faucet. Some lights may be replaced and outlets moved, but the main goal of the job is to upgrade and modernize.

Upscale kitchen remodel
Upscale kitchen remodels involve gutting the entire kitchen, adding a small addition and removing or changing walls to open up the space to another room. The kitchen is completely redesigned to better accommodate entertaining. Customers choose high-end finishes such as granite countertops, tile or hardwood floors, custom cabinets with self-closing doors and internal low-voltage lights, under-cabinet plug-ins, big center islands, glass hutches, and ceiling can lights or other upgraded lighting.
