So, you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen. It’s a great choice because you’ll enjoy the room a lot more. The project will also increase the value of your home in a significant manner. At this point, you’re probably curious as to how much this will cost you. The number ranges from $150 per square foot to roughly $630 per square foot in an upscale home. This is how much a quality kitchen remodel costs in Massachusetts. Yes, it’s a wide range, but the exact figure depends on a lot of things. For example, you need to ask yourself a few questions.
For example, what exactly do you want from the space? How do you want your new kitchen to look and function? Is the configuration and size of your current kitchen correct, or do you need to start over from scratch? You also need to know how much money you should invest to remodel your kitchen. The rule of thumb is to spend a maximum of ten to fifteen percent of the value of your home on the kitchen remodel. If your house is worth $750,000 you should spend upwards of $75,000-$112,500 on your new kitchen in order to maximize the value of your home without overspending.
