When it comes to determining kitchen remodeling costs, the general rule of thumb is that you should expect to spend between 5% to 10% of the current value of your home. But ultimately, how much you spend on your kitchen remodeling project (or bathroom remodeling project) is completely up to you.
Ask yourself “why are you remodeling”…
I’m selling the home.
You may want to consider spending closer to 5% (or less) on your kitchen remodeling project to make sure you re-coup any investment.
It’s my dream kitchen.
Spending 10% on your kitchen remodeling project may or may not be enough to get you the kitchen of your dreams. Consider your investment, especially if you see yourself there for another 15-20 years.
