Planning & Budgeting Your Home Project
There are two common ways to plan your project:
#1: Build Your Budget Based on Your Home’s Value
Consult with national averages. For example, your kitchen and bathrooms make up 6-10% of the value of your home. Additionally, basements equate to 3-6% of home value. From these averages alone, you can see that remodeling your kitchen will likely cost more than remodeling your basement, but you can usually expect a better return on your investment. When considering Return on Investment (ROI), you can expect to recover 60-70% of your remodeling investment from the resale value of your home. An example might be a beautiful kitchen overhaul. A $2,000 investment into your kitchen will yield a return of about $1,200-$1,400 in added resale value.
#2: Build Your Budget Based on Cost Per Square Foot
The cost of numerous types of projects are divided by the square footage of the kitchens, bathrooms, or basements involved. For example, you may want to put new flooring into a kitchen or basement. Looking at your budget by its cost per square foot makes calculating the cost of projects simple and straightforward.

We got a great kitchen and we are very happy about it ! Any ideas I got from the designer and contractor were just great. I am happy I found a designer who actually listened to my opinion!Florina H.Stamford, CT
Mr. Handyman (now HM Remodeling) did a wonderful job on our bathroom renovation. We had special considerations because we are a school and Bob worked with me on how best to go about achieving what we needed. Linda was wonderful in helping me plan the bathroom. She helped me save money while making wonderful decorating suggestions for lights, sinks, etc. Bob was very friendly, started work on schedule, and worked hard everyday to get the job done on time. There was no wondering where he was or when he would be back. Which means alot! I would recommend Mr. Handyman (now HM Remodeling) to anyone without reservation.Suzanne F.Norwalk, CT
Skip and his team came in and worked with us over several sessions to design the kitchen that is right for our house. Mike was there almost every day for weeks at 8 AM, made an amazing amount of progress every day, and cleaned up every night. Our kitchen turned out better than I could have ever expected, and I'd happily recommend them to anyone, and I'd also happily have them back anytime to do more project.Michael B.Danbury, CT
It's a miracle of skill and accountability that made this bath come out so incredibly well. Have you ever had a project where everything that could go wrong went wrong? From schedule to broken items (when the boxes arrived at the house) to delays in delivery to wrong color cabinet to weird angles and much much more. I could go on and on but I'll stop here because through it all, fabulous owner, Skip, and his skilled worker, Bob, fearlessly tackled every bit of the adversity thrown at them and finally, made everything right. Quite remarkable. And the result is wonderful. Here's what I really think: put your faith in Skip and he'll make everything come out right. My husband and I did. Last year, we'd already gone with Skip for our gorgeous kitchen remodel. This year, the master bath remodel. Skip's [HM Remodeling] is the best remodel outfit in the region.Anna B.Norwalk, CT
Every time I have hired Mr. Handyman (now HM Remodeling), from the smallest of projects (dry wall patch) to the biggest of jobs (full basement renovation) they have been on time, caring and genuinely skilled. I can not recommend these guys enough.Kelly H.Wilton, CT
We had our entire lower level of our house remodeled. (Office, family room and bathroom/laundry room.) They installed new floors in the entire space, painted, installed doors, shelves, and built ins. The job was done on time and on budget. Highly recommendCherie B.Newton, CT
