For most people kitchens are the center of their home and a constant gathering spot for the whole family. Kitchens need to be well thought out and organized in order to accommodate everything from cooking, eating meals as a family, kids doing homework to entertaining during social gatherings.

When planning your kitchen renovation, take the time to truly asses the function of your kitchen and the space that you require. Your kitchen colours and material choices should reflect your personality and the type of “feel” that you want to create in your new kitchen. This could range from being a “quiet and cozy space” to a “loud, dynamic area”. Take the time before your project begins to research through magazines and online so that we can order the materials to prevent delaying the project.

When it comes to budgeting for a kitchen renovation the Appraisal Institute of Canada says if you plan to stay in your house for more than 5 years, you should set your budget at 15%-25% of the resale value of your home. You should be able to recover the value of your renovation when you go sell your home but only if the quality of the work is good. Poor workmanship can actually take away from the value.
