Ask the Expert: I’m not sure I’m ready to remodel my kitchen or bathroom. What are the benefits?

Gerhards® is the largest and most versatile kitchen and bath stores in the upper Midwest. When we say we know a thing or two about remodeling your kitchen and bathroom, we mean it. A fresh redesign of these two high trafficked areas of your home can provide numerous benefits, both financially and personally.

• You’ll get personal enjoyment while entertaining in a kitchen you love.

• You’ll improve your home’s resale value. Right now a kitchen remodel (moderate) in our area will give you a 68 percent return on your investment.

• Your kitchen will be more functional. Upgrades to storage options, warming drawers, roll out trash cans, etc. will have you wondering why you didn’t simplify your life and improve the functionality of your kitchen sooner.

• You deserve it. Quality relaxation time can be so much better with upgrades to your shower or tub.
