The return on investment may vary depending on the housing market of the area you live in, and also the overall value of your house and the others in your neighborhood.

The National Kitchen and Bath Association puts a different spin on the cost of a kitchen remodel. The group recommends budgeting 15% to 20% of the value of your home for a kitchen remodel. Here’s how that might look:
For a home valued at $200,000, the budget for a kitchen remodel would be $30,000 to $40,000.
For a home valued at $400,000, the budget for a kitchen remodel would be $60,000 to $80,000.
Fixr.com says you should ask these five questions:
“Once your budget has been determined, cut it by at least 25%. Set the extra money aside as a cushion to make unexpected surprises much less stressful,” Remodelingcosts.org suggests.
Bankrate.com recommends setting aside less money (10%) to cover construction overages and other expenses that might pop up.
Regardless of the amount you allocate for surprise costs, Bankrate.com says you should price out every component of your kitchen remodel, including materials and labor. Cabinetry and hardware typically represent 29% of the cost of a kitchen remodel.
“Cabinets are the workhorse of the kitchen,” Tennille Wood, CEO and principal designer at Beautiful Habitat in Denver, tells NerdWallet. “The entire floor plan and function of the kitchen is built on them.”
Consumer Reports emphasizes that cabinets play a big part in how your kitchen looks and functions.
“Bottom line: Get the kitchen cabinets right and your chance of loving your new kitchen will go way up,” the magazine says.
How does one decide whether to choose a shaker door style? What does it even mean? Yes, your door style is one of the most important choices you will make, as cabinets are your biggest kitchen renovation expense. There is a way you can take the strain out of this decision-making process and make choices that fit your personal style and fit into your home’s aesthetic. Start with the look you want to achieve. Pictures are helpful, styles, colors, textures. When you have an idea of what you want to achieve, getting there is easier.
Choosing the right wood type.
The door style and finish are important, but everything starts with the wood. The type, color, and grain will affect the look and feel of your room with its unique patterns and characteristics. No two pieces are the same. You can learn more about wood types on our partners’ sites KraftMaid.com and Merillat.com in the finishes they offer.
Selecting a door style.
Once you choose a wood type, you can choose a door style and finish available in that style, or vice versa. There are three major considerations in choosing a door style, other than the wood type: the frame shape, the panel style, and the overlay type. These things and the combination of them help create a look, whether traditional, modern, transitional, rustic, or others.
The Frame Shape
This is typically either square (straight perimeter) or arched (rounded arch at the top). Either of these styles can have raised (center panel raised) or recessed (center panel flat) styles. Raised panel styles can achieve both a traditional and modern design. Recessed panel square-framed styles are known as “shaker” cabinets. It’s very recognizable and very versatile. It’s a classic look that can achieve a traditional to a modern style and pair with just about any wood, stain or paint color and is very budget-friendly. You can find shaker styles in just about any RTA kitchen cabinet, stock cabinet, or semi-custom brand of cabinets
The Panel Style
From the flat panel to raised panel, beaded to slab, inset (and others), the panel style will help you achieve a specific look. Some are very distinctive, like beaded, mullion, or glass inset styles. Beaded styles provide a very rustic old-world style, while slabs tend to look very minimalist and modern.
The Finish (Color)
This really comes down to the style you want. The style of the cabinets will also influence the finish you choose and the overall look you achieve. Here is a loose guide:
Modern / Contemporary – White is the most popular for a modern look, followed by shades of gray, blues, and even black. Neutral colors work well with the straight, smooth door-style shapes.
Traditional – Natural wood colors are classic here, and white is also increasingly popular. Raised panel cabinets are usually seen with traditional looks.
Farmhouse – Farmhouse and Country designs are also popular with white, light grays, and cream colors, with traditional raised panel cabinets.
Industrial – Combines metal accents with wood for a more industrial look and feel. Slab styles are typically combined with darker wood tones.
Transitional – Combines some traditional kitchens like crown molding and simple cabinetry styles, such as a shaker style with contemporary elements and finishes for a more relaxed and updated look.
The results of a kitchen remodel can be delightful. But getting to that point can be daunting. You can ease the stress by following these six tips for preparing for a kitchen remodel.
If you’re doing a DIY kitchen remodel, establish a budget before you grab any demolition tools.
Figure out what you want to accomplish with the remodel and how much you can afford to spend. You’ll need to consider the cost of materials and equipment for the project. According to Houzz, the median price tag for a kitchen remodel in the Cedar Park area is $37,000.
Not going down the DIY road? Then you’ll need to hire a certified kitchen remodeler or designer. This pro can oversee the project from start to finish, including helping set a budget, kitchen design, labor and material selections (including the all-important kitchen cabinets).
More than anything else, a professional can take the headaches out of tackling the project on your own and can deliver a high-quality outcome.
For any kitchen remodel, particularly a major project, it’s wise to carve out a space in your home that can serve as a substitute kitchen. This could be your dining room, family room or basement, for instance. Until the project is completed, your temporary kitchen might be home to your refrigerator, hot plate, microwave and other cooking necessities.
When your kitchen is in the midst of being remodeled, it might be tough to wash and dry dishes. Therefore, it’s smart to stockpile disposable plates, cups, utensils and cups so you can avoid the washing-and-drying routine.
Kitchen remodels tend to be noisy and dusty, and can even be frustrating. That’s why it’s important to be patient during the remodeling process. Just expect this and remember how great your kitchen will look after the project is done!
