THE HUMMINGBIRD KITCHEN

THE HUMMINGBIRD KITCHEN

Kitchen Remodelers in Charlotte, NC

A kitchen renovation involves a dynamic blend of creative choices and practical considerations.

From selecting the right cabinets and countertops to harmonizing with adjoining spaces like the laundry room and mudroom, every decision shapes its transformation.

Plumbing fixtures add a layer of complexity, and the project's duration is a key factor influencing both cost and excitement.

In essence, a kitchen renovation is a careful orchestration of design, functionality, and timing to bring your culinary haven to life.

Budget Breakdown

  • 30% Cabinets

  • 20% Construction & Labor

  • 15% Major Appliances

  • 15% Floor & Wall Tile

  • 10% Countertops, Sinks & Faucets

  • 5% Lighting

  • 5% Design

When embarking on a major kitchen renovation, it's customary to allocate 14-28% of your home's value for the project. For example, if your home is valued at $650,000, you should plan to spend approximately $91,000 to $182,000 for the upgrade. This investment could result in a promising 54% return on investment (ROI).

Understanding the value of your renovation investment is crucial. For example, if your home is valued at $2 million, a $150,000 renovation might not yield the desired return. Future buyers will expect sophisticated design and luxurious finishes commensurate with the home's value.  Similarly, we would caution against overinvesting in your home.

 

At Hummingbird, we recognize the importance of striking the right balance. Our expertise lies in guiding homeowners toward prudent investment decisions that align with their property's value and market expectations.

Our entry-level kitchens showcase cabinetry with solid plywood boxes, dovetail joints, and soft-close hardware, even in our most budget-friendly offerings. However, the trade-off lies in the limited choices available in terms of finish, profile, and additional features.

Despite this limitation, there remains a wide array of countertop options, ranging from granite to basic quartz, allowing for customization within budget constraints. Backsplash designs, while straightforward, can still make a significant impact on the overall aesthetic.

To complete the look, carefully selected lighting and plumbing fixtures create a distinctively personalized appearance tailored to your preferences.

The intermediate tier of kitchen renovation is typically chosen when the existing kitchen feels dated and its functionality and layout pose daily challenges. Our in-house custom cabinetry offers extensive customization options, spanning from finish and profile to innovative features that elevate the space.

 

This level of renovation often transcends surface-level changes, involving modifications to the floor plan and adjustments to the plumbing or electrical layout. Flooring is frequently part of this renovation, particularly if there are floor plan adjustments. Introducing higher-end quartz or granite countertops can infuse the space with a sense of luxury.

 

Additional features such as islands or specialty cabinetry, like built-in coffee bars, can be seamlessly integrated to enhance both functionality and aesthetics.

Our luxury kitchen renovations typically entail a complete overhaul, transforming the space into a fully reimagined area. Virtually every aspect is upgraded or replaced, with a focus on top-of-the-line finishes and appliances.

 

Custom cabinets play a central role in these renovations, often crafted by local artisans to provide almost limitless options and customizations. Luxe or specialty materials are favored, elevating the space to new heights of sophistication.

 

Natural stone products, such as quartzite or marble, are frequently incorporated into the island, perimeter countertops, or backsplash, adding an extra layer of opulence.

High-end lighting and plumbing fixtures serve as the finishing touches, solidifying the status of this kitchen as a true luxury haven.
