Just remember that a kitchen remodel will not turn you into a chef. If you were an average cook in your old kitchen, you will be a slightly more enthusiastic average cook in your new kitchen. Don’t get sucked into thinking that you need professional quality appliances. Realtors seem to agree that a minor kitchen remodel will actually bring you a better return on investment than too many luxury upgrades.  There is no point installing a $10,000 range in a $250,000 home. Unless you can’t live without a high end stove, choose good quality without going overboard. Save the money to spend elsewhere.
