Chicago real estate agents will consistently tell you that the kitchen is the most important room in your home. It makes sense – the kitchen is where you eat, where you entertain, is often the first room guests enter and is overall the center of your daily living. With all that importance being stressed, is your current kitchen holding up its end of the bargain?
One of the best investments you can make for the immediate time being as well as for long-term ROI is a kitchen remodel. You get so much out of a kitchen makeover that the only regret most of our customers have is that they didn’t contact us a decade sooner.
What Do You Get Out of a Kitchen Remodel?
A Chicago kitchen renovation fulfills all three of the major components to look for in a remodeling project. First off it improves your quality of living by providing more space as well as increasing natural light and giving you a more aesthetically pleasing place to entertain. Beyond that, a kitchen remodel can increase your energy efficiency when you replace old appliances (dishwashers, refrigerators, water fixtures) with new energy star models. Finally, renovating your kitchen improves market value by making your house more appealing to future buyers.
Take for example one of our projects at 1249 Spruce Avenue in Bensenville. The home underwent a complete kitchen remodel that included replacing cabinets, installing new tile on the floor and backsplash, replaced the countertops, and more. Once the homeowners replaced the appliances they had a new kitchen that made them money on resale but saved them costs on utility bills in the present. Best of all they had a comfortable, fresh, new area to enjoy morning coffee or an evening nightcap.
“Typical” Kitchen Renovations – No Such Thing
Kitchen renovations can include any customized feature or build that you prefer. Many customers prefer knocking down a wall to create an open kitchen concept that is all the rage in modern design trends. Even something as simple as installing a window in your kitchen is a great way to increase air circulation but also ingest some much needed natural light into the area that will change the whole atmosphere of the most important room in your home.
Kitchen remodels can start small with replacing flooring or installing new cabinets or you can opt for a full scale renovation for a completely modern and cutting edge design. Contact MG Bros for more information about the perfect project for your current design, your tastes, and your budget.
