Why remodel the kitchen?
Increasing the value or marketability of the home is among the more common reasons for a kitchen remodel; after all, a modern, remodeled kitchen appeals to prospective home buyers far more than a kitchen that seems dated or retro.
Energy savings is another prime motivation for a kitchen remodel. For example, the addition of skylights brings in far more natural light, thus helping to reduce the need for artificial light and thus the electric bill. Energy-efficient appliances and solar water heaters are excellent choices; they can also significantly cut the utility bill and are much more environmentally friendly.
One of the easiest ways to save big on your kitchen remodel is to maintain the general layout of your current kitchen. Things like removing walls or moving gas lines, plumbing connections, and electrical wiring tend to gobble up the kitchen remodeling budget.
