Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is it worth it to remodel a kitchen?

Remodeling or renovating your kitchen can be worth the time, effort and money  — especially if you plan to sell your home. A kitchen remodel is among the most appealing types of remodeling projects for potential buyers, according to the National Association of Realtors. In fact, some realtors report that a kitchen remodel has helped close a sale. This type of remodeling is also valuable because it can build a stronger desire to be in your home.

What is the average cost of a kitchen remodel?

The average cost of a kitchen remodel is $12,961. However, you should always get a cost estimate from a general contractor or kitchen remodeler near you when planning your renovations. 

The cost of upgrading your kitchen depends on a variety of factors. The first is whether you’re doing a small, medium or large remodel. Where you live also matters, with expensive cities correlating with more expensive kitchen renovation costs. The cost will also increase if you’re altering the footprint of your kitchen, changing the location of plumbing and fixtures and/or installing expensive materials like granite countertops.

How do I hire a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

The secret to hiring the best contractor(s) for your kitchen remodel is to compare several professionals’ customer reviews, ratings, specialities, services and prices. You can do this by searching online for the best kitchen remodelers near you

When you search online, you can quickly view important information about the contractors on their profiles. Read through the customer reviews, and look for profiles that feature before-and-after photos from the contractor, as well as their past clients. Inspect those photos closely to gauge the contractors’ craftsmanship. 

You should also make sure the contractor is properly licensed and insured in your area. Some state governments regulate licensure for contractors, while some don’t. Check licensing requirements in your state.

Before you hire anyone, contact at least contractors to discuss the scope of your kitchen remodel. And request written estimates from each contractor.

How can I save money on my kitchen remodel?

To keep your kitchen remodel costs as low as possible, avoid making changes after construction has begun. This will reduce the amount of wasted time and material on the part of the contractor and help you avoid extra charges. 

Double-check all measurements to make sure you order the right size appliances, cabinets and materials. Also, try to work within your existing kitchen’s footprint to avoid having to pay a plumber or electrician to completely redo your layout. 

Research all of your options for flooring, tiles, countertops and appliances. Try to get an expert’s opinion before purchasing any material if you’re unsure about the quality. 

Finally, get a few cost estimates from at least three contractors near you before you hire anyone to take on your project.

What should you not do in a kitchen remodel?

Common mistakes in kitchen remodeling include choosing fragile or low-quality materials and appliances. Attempting to DIY the entire renovation is another mistake, especially if you lack the expertise and training to do so. 

A few other mistakes include:

  • Not setting a budget 
  • Not thoroughly researching your options for materials, kitchen appliances, etc.
  • Not comparing cost estimates from multiple contractors, electricians, plumbers, etc.
  • Not measuring the areas in your kitchen, as well as the desired appliances

If you’re not sure where to start, contact a top-rated kitchen remodeler who can help you plan your kitchen remodel.

Where do I start when remodeling a kitchen?

When preparing to remodel a kitchen, start your planning process with the space planning phase. Before worrying about what the kitchen will look like, focus on where things will be located for workflow and function. In what order will your sink, stovetop and countertop go? Where will the refrigerator be? Then, you can start thinking about the materials, appliances and overall design for your kitchen. 

If you have a solid idea of the design you want, contact multiple kitchen remodeling contractors and services to find out how much your project will likely cost and which professional is best-suited for the project.

Do I need a contractor for a kitchen remodel?

A kitchen remodel is one of the most important investments you can make in your home, and it’s critical to get the details right; that’s where a home renovation contractor comes in. A minor remodel usually includes new cabinet faces and hardware, replacement appliances, and paint, while an extensive job may enlarge the kitchen’s square footage, install new cabinets or an island, change the layout, and lay new tile or hardwood floors. Any renovation that includes filing permits, construction, or electrical or plumbing work is best completed by an experienced contractor who knows local codes.

Amazing experience from start to finish. Scheduling and getting a quote were a breeze, and I appreciated Sergio's feedback on the remodel proposal. He and his crew were incredibly professional and took great care of my place. The kitchen looks amazing. I would absolutely hire them again!

I hired Sky home builders for the remodel of my kitchen this summer. Geri and his team went out of their way to help me find the best materials and get a good price. From the outset they were the most professional of all contractors that I contacted responding quickly and providing a 3D visualization with the estimate. The team were courteous, arrived on time and cleaned up after themselves. They were responsive to my requests and worked around my schedule. I would highly recommend Sky home builders for your next remodel.

Justin has done an excellent job remodeling my 2 bed / 1 bath. He is very meticulous in his work and pays attention to a lot of small details. My 2 bed / 1 bath unit had a very old kitchen with rotten cabinets, an old sink, no dishwasher, and a very old bathroom where the tiles have cracked and water damage has resided behind the walls. Justin did a spectacular job identifying the problems with the house, repaired the old damages, and found specialized people to retile the bathroom, install a new vanity, tub, toilet, install new flooring, and did a full blown remodel of the kitchen. I am currently having Justin finish work on another job I have, and I would definitely hire him again for all the hard work and dedication he puts in his job.

The gentleman (Yuri) offered a price $7K plus materials on a tiny in-law kitchen remodel without even coming to the property to see the scope of the project. I inquired about how realistic it could with that approach and he was incredibly condescending. The idea of comparing contractor bids and deciding on the best quality and price is basic. He seemed insulted by the proposition. Whether his reviews are wonderful is not the core of this review. I write this because it was incredibly insulting to respond in that manner as he did

Anstirman Construction is the best! Not only did they do an amazing job on my Kitchen and Bathroom remodel, but Roberto saved me from an unscrupulous Contractor. The first company left me in a real bind, no toilet or sink for three weeks! I called Roberto, he was competent and reassuring. He called his workers in immediately to bail me out. They after hours and weekends (even during the Super Bowl) to get my project at last minutes notice. When problems came up, he took care of it at no extra cost. One of kitchen cabinets was slightly to large, he replaced three within a day to make it symmetrical. Roberto and his crew saved me time, money, and frustration. They have renewed my trust in the licensed contractor system!

Alex and his team are just finishing a major remodel -- turning a 3 bedroom x 1 bath in a 2 x 2 with a completely open floor plan for kitchen, dining and living.... plus adding a small deck. The project has taken four months but the crews hired by Alex did great work. I have to admit I'm a pretty direct and sometimes not the easiest customer to work with because I like to buy my own furnishings (looking for better costs) but the contractors hired to do our work were very good and adjusted as needed. The project was estimated for 3-4 months and we are hitting the four month time frame on time with everything finished just in time. We also had to bring a lot of things up to proper city code which was done with almost no issues. Project looks really good for a major re-model.
