Boost the resale value of your home

If increasing the value of your home is your ultimate goal, prioritize a kitchen remodel for the greatest return on investment. According to a study by Realtor.com, 80% of home buyers list the kitchen in their top three most important rooms in the house. And Remodeling’s 2020 Cost vs. Value Report shows that homeowners in Portland, OR were able to recoup nearly 90% of the job cost of a minor kitchen remodel with an average job cost of $23,456. Invest in this important room and you’ll see the return on investment when you decide to sell your home.

Accommodate for physical disabilities or differences

Did you know that Julia Child stood at 6ft 2in tall? Because of her taller-than-average height, her countertops were built at a custom 38 inches (compared to the typical 36in counter height). The average person spends an hour cooking every day, so comfort and accessibility matter.
