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.

Contact the best kitchen remodelers near you to get started on your project.

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.

Full Kitchen and Dining Room Remodel As soon as we decided to dive into a kitchen remodeling project we took to Thumbtack and posted our project. Eric replied and offered to help and we cannot express how happy we are that we trusted Burgese with our project. Eric is so talented and has amazing attention to detail. With this being our first experience with a home remodeling project that involved a full demolition, Eric was the perfect match for us. He was so patient and guided us through every step. From design and layout planning to tiny details and decor Eric was there. Besides being super nice and great to work with, his work speaks for itself. My house looks like a totally different place....something straight out of a magazine. I would have never imagined that my kitchen and dining room would have turned out like this...its much better than I expected. Eric really treated our kitchen project like it was his own & our family is so happy! Can't wait to work with Burgese on our next project.

I tried to set up a date and time with this contractor.. He never showed up on the date and time scheduled and confirmed for the estimate on a kitchen remodel back in late Feb and never contacted me on the site until days later with BS excuses.. THIS CONTRACTOR IS 100% UNRELIABLE

My wife and I hired Rick to completely remodel our kitchen back in 2016. I did not leave a review back then out of complete laziness, but I can assure you he did a great job. He gave us a very good price compared to other contractors from whom we got estimates, and his work quality was everything we wanted. We recently rehired him to fix some water damage we had in our house from a bad roof. I had originally tried to fix some of the damage myself but got too busy to finish it. Rick gave us a really good price for the repairs and fixed all of it while working around the repairs I had already started. He was creative and hardworking. He also fixed a couple of small things I had told him about for free while he was there (that was incredible). He completely went above and beyond and we will certainly be hiring him again in the future.
