'Tis the season to renovate! As the holiday season and cold winter months approach, paving the way for a springtime real estate boom, homeowners are starting to think about renovating; but where is the best place to start? FOXBusiness.com caught up with celebrity interior designer Nate Berkus, who gave us his major doâ€™s and donâ€™ts for home remodeling.
â€œAn upgraded kitchen adds value to your homeâ€ says Berkus, who is also LG Studioâ€™s Artistic Advisor. â€œBuy appliances that are timeless and classic and will stand the test of time, and building materials that are classic and forever.â€
While the remodeling industry as a whole is valued at nearly $350 billion, the average kitchen costs $20,474 to renovate, according to a recent Home Advisor report. Fourteen percent of that cash is spent on appliances alone, says the National Kitchen and Bath Association.
