A complete kitchen remodel can be very expensive and for some, the cost is what keeps them from doing a remodel. If you decide to hire KBF to design and remodel your kitchen, the contract price will not change unless you decide to make changes to the original contract, or if there are some unforeseen problems beyond KBF’s ability to know at contract signing (such as problems with plumbing or structural problems hidden behind walls).
Tip for homeowners: For those with a budget under $25,000 for a kitchen remodel, Anundson recommends focusing on resurfacing the countertops with a quality laminate finish, installing new lighting (recessed and under-cabinet), adding a tile backsplash and replacing the sink and faucet.
If your kitchen doesn’t feel like the most popular room in your house, if family members step all over each other in a poorly organized space, if you’re embarrassed about your kitchen’s appearance or if you’re constrained by its layout, you can make major improvements with less money than you think.
And I already had a kitchen faucet before where hot/cold where two separate knobs and hated it. They are gorgeous, but completely impractical when you have raw chicken or enchilada sauce on your hands—hmm, let’s get the temperature correct, a little turn of the knob on the left, a little turn of the knob on the right, nope too hot, let’s try again.
Most people do not realize how much time that they spend in the kitchen and tend to become frustrated after a few days of being without it. Just understand that a full kitchen renovation will take anywhere from two to three weeks, depending on the size of the kitchen and the complexity of the overall renovation.
