Homeowners that do a minor kitchen remodel can see an 81 percent payback on their investment. This is compared to only a 59 percent payback for major kitchen remodels.

So, what aspects do you focus on? If you’re not moving anytime soon, imagine your dream kitchen. What would make it more elegant, relaxing, functional, and stress-free?
