One of the biggest questions when undertaking a big remodeling project is whether or not it will be worth the investment. When the remodeling process interferes even more than usual with your everyday life, like with a kitchen remodel, that question is even more important.
Out of all remodeling projects, there is none that increases your home’s value more than a kitchen remodel. According toKitchens.com, the national average for return on investment for a kitchen remodel can range anywhere from almost 60 to almost 73 percent.
Minor Kitchen Remodels Have the Best ROI
For the budget-minded, it’s probably good news that, while all kitchen remodels offer a great ROI, minor, mid-range kitchen remodels — defined as “a 200-square-foot kitchen with 30 linear feet of cabinetry and countertops” that receive cabinet refacing, raised-panel wood doors, drawers and hardware, new laminate countertops and vinyl flooring in updated colors and patterns, energy-efficient oven and stove, new mid-priced sink and faucet, new wall covering, and a new paint job — receive the best average ROI a year later. These remodels cost around $20,000 and can make a huge difference in how your kitchen looks.
Make the Most of Your Investment Dollars
The best way to ensure you’re getting your money’s worth is to work with a contractor you can trust. A good contractor — like the ones at Total Renovation Group — will help you find options that work within your budget to get you the most bang for your buck when it comes to your kitchen remodel. Choosing colors, patterns and designs that are to your taste but that will also appeal to future buyers is key in getting the most from your investment, and our contractors know how to help you do just that.

When you’re trying to sell your home in a market like the current one, you want to have every advantage you can get. One way to add value to your home — and appeal — is with renovations. But which ones are worth the money and the effort? Read on to find out.
Three Renovations That Add Value
It’s hard to balance pouring more money into your home when you’re looking to sell it, but there are certain projects that can increase the value.
Kitchen upgrades always catch the eye of people looking to buy homes. Whether you go all out and upgrade cabinets, add islands, custom cooktops and ovens and more or keep it simple with staining or painting the cabinets, updating the fixtures or replacing countertops that have seen better days, you’re sure to add value to your home.
Bathroom renovations can be a little easier than kitchen renovations because they’re generally more contained and less of a disruption to your everyday life. Similar to kitchen renovations, you can completely gut a bathroom and install a new custom designed shower or a Jacuzzi hot tub, or you can update the fixtures, replace cracked pedestals and outdated mirrors and lighting. You’ve got plenty of options, and isn’t it always a relief when you walk into the bathroom in someone’s home and find out it’s nice?
Replace Your Floors
Whether it’s your carpet that needs an update or linoleum that needs to be ripped out and replaced with something new, the options are nearly endless when it comes to updating your floors. If you have pets or active kids, carpets can get mucked up fast, but fresh new carpet, classic wood floors or stylish tile can really turn heads when it comes to adding value to your home and selling it.
