This month's Item of Value shows ways to Improve the Value to Your Home in different cost efficient ways; As Canadians we spent $25.8 billion on home renovations in 2009 and the kitchen remains the most popular room in the house to remodel. Although it's tempting to spend thousands on the latest trends and brands, it is possible to revamp the kitchen without breaking the bank.

 

Please check out the valuable info on cost-effective kitchen remodeling, attached. The 1st page outlines cost saving alternatives of the most common elements of a kitchen remodel. Page 2 offers valuable tips for a pre-sale kitchen renovation. Please share this info with your family and friends who may be interested in remodeling their kitchens.

 

Oh, by the way............We are never too busy for your Referrals! Don't forget our appreciation of $500.00 for each successful referral.
