Have you thought about upgrading/remodeling your kitchen but are wondering if it’s worth it? In general, you will not recoup the full cost of your kitchen remodel, so ideally you’re getting your own enjoyment/use from the remodel before having to sell. According to the Remodeling 2022 Cost vs. Value Report, your recoup value will be highest for a minor vs. major kitchen remodel. Read on for the breakdown…
