How much does a kitchen remodel cost?
One advantage of choosing Kansas City Kitchen Remodeling is that we can work with your budget while still giving you the elegant kitchen space you want. For example, if your budget is limited, we might refinish your home’s kitchen cabinets for an entirely new look, or install kitchen flooring over the current tiles, to avoid the cost and hassle of a tear-out. If your kitchen lacks storage, we can help you choose high-quality but affordable cabinetry that offers all the shelving space you need. Whatever your budget and whatever your dreams for a new kitchen, we can make it happen!
Kitchen cabinets that are outdated but in good repair can often be refaced. This process involves removing all the cabinet doors and drawer fronts, and then sanding and stripping those pieces, along with the front of the cabinets, down to the bare wood.
Fresh paint or stain is then added for a completely updated look in the kitchen. Our sales reps can even help you choose new handles, pulls, and hooks, to complete your designer look and make your entire kitchen exquisite and unique to you!

How does a kitchen remodel affect a home's value?
There is no guarantee as to how much of your investment you’ll see after a kitchen remodel, but many studies have shown that this type of project will recoup over 90% of its cost! This ROI makes a kitchen renovation one of the best investments you can make in your home.
The amount of time it takes to remodel your kitchen depends on the extent of the work you want to have done, and the current condition of the space. For example, if the kitchen’s flooring is not level and even, tiles may need to be torn up and plywood installed before new tiles are laid. If the cabinets have several layers of paint and grease on their fronts, it may take longer to sand them down for a refacing. If you’re worried about the amount of time you’ll be without a kitchen during a remodel, our highly-trained renovation specialists will work with you to find solutions and alternatives that are fast and affordable!

What to do first in a kitchen renovation?
Spreading out the work to be done for your home’s kitchen renovation can be more comfortable on your budget, and your schedule. To decide what you might first do in a kitchen renovation, consider what detracts the most from the kitchen’s appearance and function! For example, outdated countertops are often unsightly and unhygienic for food prep. Old and worn cabinets can lack storage space and be downright ugly.
