Different Budgets for Different Kitchens The first question everyone wants to know is “how much will it cost to remodel my kitchen?” Explaining this...
When I go into a meeting, the first question everyone wants to know is “how much is it going to cost to remodel my kitchen?” Explaining this, is one of the most complex things to do.
There are many factors that affect the cost of a kitchen remodel. Basic construction issues will always arise, like repairs, client selections for cabinets, appliances, tile/stone, or whether or not things plumbing and/or electrical need to be moved around, and adding space. All of these factors determine the true cost.
I have separated the kitchen remodel costs into three different ROUGH estimated budgets; basic, modest, and upscale.
1. The Basic Kitchen Remodel:
Basic does not have to be boring. You can spice up your kitchen by paying attention to the details that go into it such as paint colors and the back splash.
This will cost about $20,000 to $30,000 if it is done by a professional (which of course it always should be). So what does a basic kitchen renovation entail?
2. The Modest Kitchen Remodel:
Do you need to change the layout of your kitchen for more space or a kitchen island? This will generally cost you around $40,000 to $75,000. What does a modest kitchen entail?
3. Upscale Kitchen Remodel:
This type of kitchen is a cooks dream. If you enjoy cooking and would love a chief’s style kitchen, this is for you. However, it will also cost you a pretty penny. This upscale kitchen remodel will cost you $100,00 and up. What does an upscale kitchen entail?
It’s easy to envision your dream kitchen, but when the money is tight and you start the remodeling process, your dream kitchen slowly assembles into something else. Make sure you and the general contractor are in constant communication to ensure the decision choices are in keeping within your budget. A good contractor will thoroughly plan out the job before it has been awarded so that the true cost of the project is reflected and not just an estimate.
