Kitchen renovations aren’t cheap — homeowners spend between $12,000 and $33,000 on them, according to HomeAdvisor — so most people want them to last awhile.

For that to happen, it’s important to carefully consider your personal style to ensure you’re satisfied with this big investment.

Of course, should you sell the home, it’s also important to make choices that might be attractive to homebuyers. (Especially if you don’t want to renovate again just to list the property!)

Generally, you can’t go wrong with a white kitchen; this timeless color goes with everything. But searching through Pinterest and other sources can inspire you to fine-tune your vision before you spend the big bucks.

Just don’t get carried away — set a budget for your renovation to ensure your dream kitchen can become a reality.
