Kitchen Remodeling Questions

The average time of kitchen renovation is 6 weeks. It heavily depends on the scope of work. If you change the layout or remove walls, it will increase the time significantly. Usually, there is a design and materials selection phase before construction begins so your project manager will provide a detailed timeframe.

The budget depends on the scope of work. If you keep the appliances in the same location and don’t change the floors it can cost under $15,000. If you are going to replace the floors, paint the space, replace the backsplash, and change the layout it can cost up to $55,000 for a medium-sized kitchen. The average kitchen remodel in Lake Forest is $30,000.

Even if you want to copy some Houzz kitchen, you would need help with the interior design. The cabinet layout needs to be done by a professional to maximize space while looking good, and there are many other details to consider. The rest of the decor selections should be easier to do by yourself. The kitchen is the most important and difficult space to do by yourself from an interior design perspective. 123 Remodeling offers interior design services by our in-house designers as a part of the design-build process.

It depends if you do only cosmetic work or if you do plumbing, electrical or structural changes. In Lake Forest permits are required by Homeowner Associations. In order to pull a permit, you have to work with a licensed and insured contractor.

Homeowners who remodel their kitchens can frequently see 80% of the renovation cost added to their home value. In the case of popular designs (like a white transitional kitchen), it may add up to 92% of the value because you increase a pool of potential buyers.
