NOW: That tired kitchen or closet wearing on you? Try a redo!

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58)--We love spending time in our kitchen these days whipping up the perfect meal.  So why not make sure it's the best space it can be?  Senior designer Paulette Sodemann with Callen Construction in Muskego says there are a lot of considerations for a kitchen remodel, including size, functionality, and budget.  But as you're planning, know the popular trends and what can really boost the resale value as well. Islands in the kitchen and open areas are two big concepts in big demand these days.

Another favored room in your home is the bedroom.  More specifically the closet.  Brian Hering with Tailored Living in Waukesha says you want to have your closet divided with two-thirds hanging and the other-third shelving.  He also recommends bi-fold doors and storing your shoes at the top of your closet for the best use of space.

Remember when you're hiring a contractor, you have to be so careful.  Any expert will say do your homework and seek out references.  Both the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) and Better Business Bureau (BBB) are two great resources.
