Here are some of the most common questions we get asked.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I SPEND ON A KITCHEN REMODEL?
When renovating, it is important to consider your investment parameters. Always factor your current financial situation into the equation. The suggested amount to spend on a kitchen remodel is typically between eight to 16 percent of the value of the home. An eight percent investment usually includes replacing cabinets and countertops but maintaining the original kitchen footprint. An investment on the higher end may be more extensive and include a full redesign with new cabinets, countertops, appliances, flooring, and accessories. Spending more or less than the recommended percentage can lead to a lower return on your investment.
The experienced designers at McCabinet can help you determine what kitchen designs could be best based on your investment comfort level.
WHAT OTHER CONSIDERATIONS SHOULD I CONSIDER BEFORE SELECTING KITCHEN FINISHES?
Your living situations play a large part in what type of cabinets would work best for your family.
IF YOU PLAN TO SELL YOUR HOME SOON:
Most people in this situation should stick with a stock cabinet, or alternatively, chose imported cabinetry, which tends to be less expensive. Chose finishes that are in style right now, to make the kitchen feel contemporary and up-to-date. Countertops should be chosen to complement the cabinetry, and should not be an emotional splurge for the current homeowners.
IF YOU PLAN TO STAY IN YOUR HOME FOR AT LEAST FIVE YEARS:
The main objective in this scenario is to select a design that will last the test of time without breaking the bank. Work with your designer to select a timeless style, staying away from anything too trendy. Typically, it is suggested to spend 8-12% of the home’s value on this sort of renovation.
IF YOU’RE IN YOUR “FOREVER HOME”:
This is where you can get creative, have some fun, and completely customize your space. In your forever home, you are no longer considering the redesign of your space an investment, but as an opportunity to create a kitchen your family will love for years to come. It is recommended to spend 10-16% of the overall home’s value.

HOW DO I SELECT FINISHES?
When designing your kitchen, there are a lot of selections that need to be made – from the cabinet construction to the door style to hardware and finishes. The best way to begin the process is by collecting photos of kitchens you like and reviewing them with your designer. Your designer will review the inspiration photos with you and help you customize a space that will work perfectly for you and your family.
