While looking at a potential kitchen remodel recently, I told the homeowner the first step to remodeling a kitchen is putting plans together. Yet, no estimate or cost breakdown is worthwhile without an experienced and reliable contractor to complete the kitchen remodel. On the other hand, while basic, stock cabinetry can save you $10,000-$20,000 on the total cost of your remodel, laminate countertops are more likely to save you only about $2,000-$5,000.
Cabinetry and hardware, particularly custom-made cabinetry and hardware, are the most expensive items for kitchen remodels. Unless specified in Project Options list, this kitchen remodel estimate does NOT include costs for relocating, repairing, modifying or enhancing existing structural, HVAC, electrical and plumbing systems.
Lastly, if you want a good deal, try to schedule your remodel for sometime after the winter holidays and before late spring/summer. Before we started, a good friend listened to what we needed and mapped out the kitchen with us. If only the best” is your motto, you’ll want to consider the cost of top-of-the-line appliances when you prepare your budget.
If you won’t live with this kitchen forever, save your splurges for items popular among home buyers, such as stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops. Many customers have already decided on IKEA cabinets when they contact us. We provide professional design so that the kitchen, once installed, serves their needs and pleases them aesthetically, and is optimally laid out for function and enjoyment.
When talking about a kitchen remodel , I typically refer to three levels: entry-level, midrange and high-end. Once their projects are completed, the members log in to their accounts and complete a short cost survey. On average, and considering that the size and condition of your existing kitchen are major variables, you will probably need $10,000 and at least 3-4 weeks (starting with demolition) to change your current kitchen into a new IKEA kitchen.
