Our advice is to ask yourself three crucial questions: What exactly do you want to do with the extra space? What is it that you want to get out of this remodel? How much money do you want to spend?

 

There’s the rule of thumb that you should spend between 5% and 15% percent of your home’s total value, but there’s also the rule that adding small additions to your kitchen could increase your home’s value. Below you have a cost estimator that’ll clarify remodel costs for you.
