You think it's time for kitchen remodeling but need help figuring out where to start. It can seem a little overwhelming but follow these step-by-step details, and you'll be fine.

First, figure out your budget

The average cost to remodel this room is about $28,000. It can, however, go much lower–or higher.

Do you need clarification about what to spend? Simplify it by determining if it's a cosmetic update or a full remodel with a layout change. The latter will probably mean moving plumbing and electrical systems.

Also, are you staying or selling? If selling, kitchen remodels can increase the sale price by 50%.

About kitchen cabinets

Cabinets take up as much as 30% or more of your kitchen remodeling budget.

2. There are three types. Stock ones come in standard colors and sizes with no option for changes. "Semi-stocks" can be changed a little by adjusting drawer size. Custom means plans are drawn to your specification; then sent to a workroom to be built.

3. Colors range from neutrals to white, black, green, and blue–or even two tones.

4..Most installers prefer to install kitchen cabinets before the floor covering; otherwise, there can be height issues. With this schedule, the floor covering is cut to fit and butted against the cabinets.

Countertops: Often, the room's focal point

If cabinets are the star, counters are a strong supporting player. They must be aesthetic, with plenty of storage and surface space to prepare meals.

Countertops come in many materials, from natural stone and tile to laminate, butcher block, solid surfacing, and more.
