Replace, Renew or Expand Your Kitchen
Early in remodel planning, determine whether to reface or replace your kitchen cabinets or expand your space. Any of the three will provide you with a new look. Your decision will be based on your current space, budget, schedule and family needs. If you do not plan on expanding your space, there are three other ways to refresh the design. Try changing the kitchen layout, reface or paint your cabinets, and replace cabinets. Each plan has pros and cons.
When setting a budget and determining whether to expand your kitchen or reface or replace cabinets, consider how long you plan on staying in your home and how your investment will be reflected in the home’s value. Kitchen remodels, according to US News Money, generally yield a higher return than bathroom or other remodel projects.
