If you’re looking for the cost to remodel a kitchen , you typically encounter a brick wall: no one wants to tell you. In this cost the average cost of trades for a kitchen renovation is $56 per hour, however, this cost can vary significantly depending on the extent to which a kitchen needs to be altered and which state or territory you are in. With the full range being between $50 per hour up to $77 per hour and this is for labour alone you then need to add the costs of installation and appliances.
But remember, this is a conservative average estimate and doesn’t take into consideration Boston’s unique housing market and very high-end luxury building projects in the Boston area (like Millennium Tower), which would put the average cost of a Boston home remodeling project at the top of that national range and much higher.
Cabinets have a lot of built-in costs you may not have considered: trim at the top and bottom, base support, hardware, and of course, what the cabinets are made out of. Anytime you go with a solid wood cabinet, you’ll be looking at a great increase in cost.
You can reduce the cost of your kitchen remodeling job by doing some of the work yourself, but if you are spending this kind of money, you want the total product to look professional, and unless you are an expert, it is usually best left to the professionals.
There is really no right or wrong way to go about determining what you want you kitchen to be. But if you invest a little time in the process the payoff will be a kitchen you will enjoy working in and will be proud to show off to you friends and relatives.
