The value of a kitchen renovation.

The kitchen is considered the heart of the home. It is where you prepare meals, eat as a family and entertain guests. It’s where you have your morning coffee, where your kids finish up their homework and where you end the day with a cup of tea or glass of wine. Because it’s a favourite room, Four Elements Construction, general contractors in Edmonton and area, find it to be one of the most popular home renovations and one that will bring you a great return on your investment.

If you want to renovate as an investment, a kitchen renovation is the smartest choice. Any experienced real estate agent will tell you that the kitchen, followed by the bathrooms, is the first room a home buyer will look at when considering your home for purchase. Where a dated, poorly laid out and dysfunctional kitchen can really turn off buyers. A modern, new kitchen renovation in Edmonton will attract them.

Besides improving the marketability of your home, a kitchen renovation will also help increase the actual resale value of your property. According to Remodeling Magazines Cost vs. Value Report for 2018, a minor kitchen renovation can recoup over 81 per cent of its initial cost. If you spend about $21,000 on a kitchen renovation you can expect to see the overall value of your home increase by over $17,000. This is a great ROI, especially when compared to other home renovations.
