Financing a Kitchen Remodel in Your Naperville, IL Home

The Kitchen Master | May 28, 2020

Kitchens are the heart of many homes, frequently used for gatherings as well as the preparation of meals. Due to the multitude of uses, kitchens are a commonly selected room for a remodel. If you are interested in sprucing up your space for yourself or as a preparation to sell your house, remodeling can give your kitchen a great new look, but it can also be expensive. The first step in the process is deciding how you will pay for it – thankfully, you have a lot of options.

Why Should I Finance My Kitchen Remodeling Project?

Kitchen remodeling is a great way to add the most functionality and value to your home, but it can also be a pretty expensive home remodeling project. Depending on the desired outcome, a full kitchen remodel can range between five and six figures. However, you shouldn’t let all those zeros discourage you; there are plenty of ways to take advantage of the value a kitchen remodel brings without breaking the bank.

Kitchen Remodel Finance Options:

  • Use the equity in your home:
    • Mortgage Refinance – This involves applying for a new mortgage that pays off your existing mortgage with some extra money available to pay for your remodel. It typically offers a lower interest rate and a longer repayment period.
    • Home Equity Loan – Sometimes called a second mortgage, this type of loan adds an additional mortgage to your existing loan, based on the amount of equity you have. Like a refinance, it offers lower rates and more time to pay off the loan, but you’ll be making two payments.
    • Home Equity Line of Credit – A HELOC is a line of credit that is based on the equity of your home. Repayment terms are flexible, but interest rates can fluctuate.
  • Apply for a personal loan – If you don’t have much equity in your home, a personal loan often offers a lower interest rate than a credit card.
  • Take advantage of credit card offers – Some credit cards offer special deals on low-to-no-interest purchases for a set amount of time. If you think you can pay off the balance quickly, it might save money to take advantage of one of these offers.
  • Pay cash – If you have the money available, you can always pay cash, but your cash may serve you better in investments if you can find a low-interest financing option.
