Start by dividing your spending into two categories—the cost of materials and the cost of the actual work. Even though the options are endless, no one wants to move forward with a basement remodel until they have an idea of how much it’s going to cost. When talking about a kitchen remodel , I typically refer to three levels: entry-level, midrange and high-end. While this may be a significant factor if you are planning to sell your house in the near future, it should also factor any time you decide to remodel your kitchen.
Keep in mind that most design build firms quoting prices for a remodel do not include appliances and plumbing fixtures in their estimate. Before the renovation,the Givenses’ kitchen was located in the center of the house. Return on investment (ROI) is key with not only kitchen remodels, but any remodel throughout the house.
In the year 2009, the National Kitchen and Bathroom Association considered a small kitchen as small as 70 square feet or lower. Additionally, at Alure Home Improvements, we understand that the cost of a kitchen remodel can sometimes be a concern, which is why we’re so pleased to offer our EXTREME 10-DAY kitchen remodel as a more cost-effective alternative.
For a kitchen remodel of any substance that includes new flooring, appliances, cabinets, sink/faucet, lighting and bringing electric up to code I find anything less than 15% to be a very dubious number. Homeowners spend more money on kitchen remodeling than on any other home improvement project.
Unless you plan to live in your house for the rest of your life or longer than 20 years, your potential ROI will affect your total renovation cost. I think most people understand this, but those kitchens are so pretty and the prices look so affordable, it’s easy to forget that IKEA sells MATERIALS only, and that LABOR costs can easily be more than half the cost of a project.
