Small Kitchen Remodels: DIY-Friendly and Lower Cost
Small kitchen remodeling is a game all by itself. With large kitchen spaces you enjoy certain freedoms that you do not have with smaller spaces–room for more countertop area, appliances, and a kitchen island.
Except for anomalies like a home theater, the kitchen is the most expensive room in the house to remodel, on a square foot by square foot basis. It follows that the less square feet you remodel, the less your overall remodel cost will be.
