In our last blog we talked about the top ten Virginia home remodeling projects that bring the highest return on investment for home owners. Coming in at numbers 5 and 9 on that list were kitchen remodeling projects. The kitchen took up two spaces on the list because there are generally two ways that a family and their kitchen renovation contractor can approach the kitchen project: Minor tweaking and surface remodeling, or complete overhaul. Of course, there are multiple levels of complexity in between those two levels, but either way, kitchen remodeling projects remain very popular, even in these difficult financial times for one very important reason: the kitchen is the most popular room in the house!
As Virginia kitchen renovation contractors who have helped many of families remodel their kitchens, we understand the reason for the enduring popularity of these types of projects: families spend a lot of time together in the kitchen. We cook there, we eat there, we talk there, we do homework there… it's a high traffic area every day. Therefore, many families choose a kitchen renovation project over an exterior renovation project simply because they expect get more enjoyment out of the end result. And with more families staying in their homes longer (rather than selling them) it only make sense that they want to update and add efficiency and style to the spaces that mean the most to them.
So perhaps you've been sitting at the kitchen table and wanting to change a few things about how this popular space looks and operates. Maybe you covet your favorite TV chef's kitchen layout. Maybe you need a new backsplash, or crave more cabinet space. Maybe you've always wanted an island, or need to make space for a bigger refrigerator, or want to do a fun retro-themed kitchen. Either way, any kitchen renovation contractor worth his granite countertops will guide you through a few important considerations before you jump into a project with both egg beaters spinning:

Either way, a good kitchen renovation contractor will work to build the vision without going over budget or out of schedule.
