It is very important to determine the budget for any home improvement project, and the renovation of the kitchen is no exception.
A word of caution: I spent several hours researching kitchen remodeling costs and budgeting on the Internet to collect data for this article. I ran into a couple of websites that provide the square footage price for a kitchen remodeling.

There are several places online you can go to help you build a basic budget, to begin with. My personal recommendation Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value Report released by regions and cities every year.
Factor 1 home value-Consider not only what you think your home is worth, but also the value of the same house in your neighborhood that already has an update Noting that house the same size as you, has been bought recently.
Factor 2 Wow! – It has everything to do with purpose and motivation. Write each important motivating factor for you in a kitchen remodel. Here are some examples that might be: Kitchen mess. Like cooking and layout does not suit you.
Factor 3 Did someone says AGA? – List all the "must-haves" for a kitchen remodel to be worth it for you. an example might be granite counters, an island with an extra sink, two dishwashers, a commercial quality gas range, etc.
Factor 4 Longevity- Determine to the best of your ability the length of time you plan to own the home.
Factor 5 critical sizes-Define what percentage of your home includes your kitchen. An example of more than 100 modern house plans from 1000-3000 square foot home kitchen discloses square footage on average to 7% of the square footage of the house.
