According to Remodeling magazine, the average price of a minor kitchen renovation is $20,122, while a major overhaul will drain $60,000 from your bank account. I personally believe we should all do things that bring us pleasure and joy into our lives on a daily basis but it’s all a balancing act so the purpose of your remodel needs to be taken into definite consideration. Most countertops can be installed by your average DIY enthusiast, but if you are looking at stone countertops it is almost always better to have a professional installer do it for you.
Semi-custom cabinets ($150 – $1,000) come in the same sizes as stock cabinets, but you can have them detailed at an extra cost. This also means the appliances take up less floor space, which can be good for a small kitchen remodel design. The labor and materials to have a licensed electrician replace a panel and run wires to the kitchen from it, have to be added to the budget, and these can be significant, perhaps $2000 as a ballpark estimate.
If you cook a lot, make sure that you get a model that has a strong vent, so that unwanted smells don’t linger on in your kitchen. Dun-Rite’s kitchen remodeling experts have the design flexibility to accommodate any height, width, or space requirement unique to your kitchen remodeling project.
According to Remodeling Magazine, the average budget for an upscale kitchen renovation is about $82,000. On the other hand, hiring a contractor will cost an average of $1.5-3.00/ (labor only). Changing the layout of the kitchen might also require you to move outlets and fixtures.
If you have recently updated your kitchen and didn’t touch the faucet, chances are, your old sink does not mesh well with the new design. Whether you’re looking to move or stay put, an up-to-date kitchen is a serious difference-maker. The dinner table, kitchen island, chair, bar stools, etc are all opportunities to show off your style.
