20 Renovations That Will Hurt Your Home’s Value

An Extremely High-End Kitchen

The kitchen is often the heart of a home, and it’s a project many homeowners save up for. However, the resale value of a major, high-end kitchen remodel is actually less than what you’ll invest in it.

In 2015, the national average for a major kitchen remodel cost as much as $56,768/£46,700, but the resale value was only $38,485/£31,550, according to Remodeling.hw.net.

To avoid spending too much on a project that won’t give you a return on investment, try to focus on which aspects of the kitchen are most outdated or worn. And as tempting as it might be, consider selecting mid-range appliances rather than the expensive high-end options.
