As we saw with our bathroom remodels,  renovating your kitchens can also have a huge influence on returns for your home renovation investment. The kitchen is also a make-or-break room for homebuyers to look at, and we’re here to share some great kitchen redesign ideas with you.

Here are four kitchen remodel design proposals we made using Kukun’s projected home value tools, which allowed us to get an idea of how much the renovation would cost and what its total return on investment would be (keeping in mind the actual condition, location and market value of each one).

1. For a house in San Francisco, we proposed a modern yet warm and inviting look with new cabinets, new flooring, new lighting fixtures, the relocation of the oven and the kitchen sink, and the installation of tiles on the walls. The remodel options — with “high level” plumbing and flooring, and “good level” cabinetry and electricity gave

Projected cost for renovation of $17,600 and an impressive estimated equity gain of $15,000.

2. For the second kitchen remodel, we kept the plumbing and electrical installations where they originally were. The main kitchen redesign ideas we decided to go with were the placement of new cabinets, a new oven, the installation of new lamps, and some new furniture and fixtures. The cost of this remodel project in Sunnyvale was estimated on $16,000 with an equity gain of $13,600.

3. The third kitchen renovation proposal we’d like to present to you was for a house built in 1950. This remodel was basically about a new countertop, a new backsplash, and new cabinets. The change in style was the most dramatic change, resulting in a minimalistic and pure look, in contrast to the current date style.

Estimated cost: $3,900

Estimated equity gain: $5,850

This renovation proposal for a kitchen in Tappan, New York suggested brand new high-end cabinets, new flooring that would continue into the next room, new appliances and fixtures, and some work on the ceiling to improve the general illumination of the kitchen. The plumbing installations were left as found. This project had an estimated cost of $18,400, with an equity gain of $15,600.

Remember that major kitchen remodeling and design renovations aren’t always necessary — the space might only need a facelift. If your kitchen is in good functional shape, then you don’t have to completely transform it; in those cases, you can choose from smaller kitchen redesign ideas, such as changing the finishing of surfaces, upgrading the appliances or installing new light fixtures.
