Remodeling Magazines Cost vs. Value Report for 2008-2009 shows that kitchen remodeling is still a smart investment for both midrange and upscale projects. Even in these current economic times, investing in kitchen remodeling is still likely to give you a 70-80% return on your investment when you sell your home—and think of the pleasure you and your family will get, right now, from a kitchen upgrade. Thats worth a lot in the quality-of-life zone. Your dream kitchen is likely to include new or upgraded cabinetry. Imagine the instant visual impact of beautiful cabinets.
