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.

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.

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 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.

I was more than comfortable having the crew in the house by themselves and my Kitchen remodel was done with great attention to detail. Communication with Ido was good as I received updates almost daily. Our kitchen remodel was no small undertaking so I give credit to the project managers for keeping us on track. Quality workmanship speaks for itself..everyone loves our new kitchen. Proud to show it of.

They did a wonderful kitchen job and the outcome is beautiful. With any remodeling project, there is always bumps and mishaps but Ido and his crew were professional from the start. I want to give some props to Ido also because he did beautiful work with our tile and he was always careful to do the job as good as his own home deserves. Thank you to the crew of GEI Renovation Group for this wonderful kitchen!

Our 1980 style kitchen was in need of a complete overhaul. GEI Renovation Group did an excellent job taking care of everything from the complete gutting, knocking out a wall, re-wiring electrical, plumbing, carpentry, drywall, tile, floor, cabinet, countertop, and appliance installation. We felt confident with GEI Renovation Group and their crew bringing our new kitchen to a reality. Finest home remodeling contractors in town. Thanks.

Edwin was the best decision I made for our renovation/remodel. Edwin remodel the kitchen / master bathroom and added an addition of 240 sq ft to our 102 yr old house. The remodel took 5 months and he saw every detail through to the end. He took care of permitting, revising and adapting our original drawings, and advising us on improvements that were needed outside the original scope of work such as new insulation, new incoming water pipes, and modern techniques to improve upon architect's design. I was constantly price checking him, and found his pricing very fair. He was timely on a day to day basis and kept us well informed on what work was happening and if work was not happening, why. We would definitely recommend Brivenca Builders and would use them again.

Tell-Projects was wonderful. I worked closely with Zach, with office supervision and communication from Ellie. They helped us remodel our entire second floor living in just under 3 weeks, start to finish! That included demolishing the kitchen and two walls, installing new floors, counters, countertops (quartz), and installing our handpicked appliances. They were very efficient, speedy, and thorough. Throughout the experience, Zach was very communicative, open, and honest. We partnered closely to create a floor plan and the various design choices that go into it. My fiance and I both travel for work each week but we had full trust of Zach and his team to be in the house working. He would send us pictures of the progress each day and was very accessible if we had any questions by phone. We'd highly, highly recommend Tell-Projects for future remodeling projects, no matter how big or small. Price was very reasonable considering the value, and they put no pressure on you to do more than you absolutely need. And of course, there are always little touch-ups here and there afterward to get everything perfect, but Zach and his team were more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure that we felt happy. You can see pictures of our remodeled kitchen here: Safe to say that we are thrilled!

Working with Tell Projects has been an amazing experience so far, they're doing other projects for us as we speak and still have to install a few final things w this one; however, I was blown away that they completed a our shower remodel in THREE days and made sure it was everything that we wanted along the way. The Project Manager, Zach, met with us after hours several times to discuss the various options of how to get updates we were hoping for along with the most "bang for our buck" The Designer, Elizabeth, was very open to all of my ideas and offered guidance to stay on budget without having to lose anything that I was hoping for. Their team was timely, well mannered and kept the site very clean. I can't wait to see what they do for our complete kitchen remodel. Everyone that's been on site so far has been friendly, polite and respectful of our home. If the kitchen is anything like how smoothly the bathroom went (and is it this far) then I couldn't ask for a better renovation experience! Stay tuned!
