Kitchen Renovations

Kitchens are at the centre of a family's daily lives, where meals are made and family and friends will gather. A well designed kitchen can really help sell a house.

There are plenty of ways to work with what you've got like painting kitchen cabinets or simply swapping out appliances, although if budget allows a full kitchen renovation is where the real benefits are. On average people tend to upgrade their kitchens every 10 to 15 years and can spend between $15,000 and $60,000, even more if premium appliances are included.
