Are you unhappy with your current kitchen? Many homeowners want to change certain things about their home but they aren’t sure if they need a full renovation or just a remodel. Today, the team at Booher Remodeling Company are discussing the difference between a renovation and a remodel so you can start planning for your dream kitchen right away.

Renovation vs. Remodel


Many people refer to a kitchen remodel as “a full gut job.” When you plan a kitchen remodel you are planning a large project that may involve changes to the actual structure or layout of your space. For example, you may want to give yourself more space by tearing down a wall or changing your layout to fit a kitchen island. Remodeling may involve more contractors, permits, and is generally more expensive than a renovation. If you are happy with your kitchen layout and you have enough space, you likely don’t require a full remodel.


When you plan a kitchen renovation, you are looking to make updates to your existing features. Renovations are generally smaller jobs and require fewer people to complete. You may choose to change your countertops, update your cabinets, or even your floor, but the use of space and layout will not change. Renovations are generally less expensive than a remodel and we recommend working with a design team to help you achieve the look and feel you desire.
