Top 10 Value Boosting Projects #8

Here’s the one we all thought was number one with a bullet:



The Kitchen Remodel

The minor kitchen remodel, actually.  The Cost vs. Value Report distinguishes a minor kitchen remodel from a major kitchen remodel.

Here’s what’s included in the minor remodel:

  • Keep existing cabinets but replace door and drawer fronts and and hardware.



  • Oven/cooktop upgrade to new energy efficient model



  • Replace laminate counter tops






This one is concrete.  One of my favorite countertop materials.










  • New upgraded sink and faucet



  • Replace/upgrade flooring



Hardwood is my personal favorite for kitchens.  I think a kitchen gives you a chance to be a bit more bold with your flooring than you would in the rest of your house, like with this dark stain.
