If you’re like most, you spend a great deal of time in your kitchen. Why not make it a space you love?

WillowTree can do anything from simple remodels to a complete kitchen makeover including flooring, cabinets, fixtures, lighting and countertops.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Remodeling your kitchen is a great way to update the interior look of your home and make your kitchen a better fit for your lifestyle and personal needs. There are several steps to a kitchen remodeling project that may become complicated, so it is important to begin with a carefully detailed plan. No matter what you choose to do, remember to have fun and add your personal style into your kitchen remodel. The sky is the limit with endless item options for both function and décor.
COST OF KITCHEN INVESTMENT
Factors such as room size layout, materials used and amount of labor required all affect the cost of your kitchen remodeling project. Any project will cost more if you are starting from scratch with a complete remodel rather than just replacing a couple items. Choose the project that fits best with your budget and needs.
A kitchen remodel can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000 or even $150,000. You can regulate this cost by making product choices that fit your budget. The amount you want to spend depends on your budget, needs and also your future plans for your home.
Remodeled kitchens are near the top of the list for the best investment homeowners can make to increase their resale value. Buyers looking at multiple properties are more interested in homes with a recently remodeled kitchen area.
According to a Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling Magazine, national averages estimate that a major kitchen remodel of approximately $55,000 will recoup 78% of the job cost and a minor kitchen remodeling project of about $20,200 will recoup 83% of that cost.
A new kitchen is a major investment, so take your time choosing colors, finishes, features and remember to have fun with it. Work closely with your professional contractor and don’t hesitate to ask for help and creative ideas. WillowTree is here to help you achieve the kitchen of your dreams.
