You can expect to recapture 100 percent of your remodeling costs
When calculating how much to spend on a renovation, remember that a kitchen is often worth the expense from a resale point of view. In other words, you will gain back the money you invested in the increased value of your home. Real estate experts advise not to spend more than 10 to 15 percent of the total value of your home on kitchen construction. According to The National Home Builders Association and the National Kitchen and Bath Association, you can expect to recapture 100 percent of your remodeling costs as long as you don’t create a kitchen that's too eccentric or peculiar that will not appeal to potential buyers.
