Go Forth and Remodel
You've done your homework, looked at your neighborhood and considered your future plans. And you have a clear idea of how much your new kitchen will cost. Here's one last remodeling tip that works for any kitchen, whether you're a do-it-yourselfer or depend on the pros: Make sure to allow some extra cash in your budget for those unexpected expenses that always seem to pop up. If you err on the high side when pricing your upgrades, you won't scramble for extra cash when small jobs turn into big ones. And if you end up not needing the wiggle room, use the extra to make a dent in one of your other projects.
