How Much Should I Expect to Invest

The kitchen reigns as the most popular room in the home to remodel, followed closely by the bathroom. It’s also one of the most important to potential buyers. Whether you are considering a remodel to enhance your time spent in it, or for the potential resale value, updating the heart of your home is a big decision. One of our most frequently asked questions is, “How much should I expect to invest?”. Of course, there are several variables in the scope of any remodeling project, including where you live, the size of the space, the materials selected, and whether or not you’re using the same layout. Working with trusted and experienced remodeling professionals is the best way to get the most out of your investment. 

Each year Remodeling magazine contrasts average costs for several remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale. The 2020  Cost vs. Value report says that the average price to renovate a midrange 200 square foot kitchen in the St. Louis region is approximately $66,000. Included in this dollar amount are semi-custom wood cabinets, laminate countertops, vinyl flooring, appliances, a standard sink, and lighting. If you’re aiming for higher-end materials like granite or quartz countertops and wood flooring, the cost will increase accordingly.

The first step toward any remodeling project should begin with an open discussion about your desired scope of work, likes, and dislikes. A tour of our showroom allows us to walk you through options, discuss our process, provide a referral list, and set a time for an in-home visit. From there, we’re able to gather more detailed information and move into the initial design and budget analysis.
