How Much Does it Cost to Remodel a Kitchen?

One of the most gratifying updates you can do to your home is a kitchen renovation. These remodels not only increase the value of your home but add personality and functionality to any outdated kitchen. Are you getting ready for your own kitchen remodel? You must check out this guide that gives a breakdown of the costs of remodeling a kitchen. 

Things to Remember When Remodeling Your Kitchen

Before we can discuss the cost of a kitchen remodel, there are some things you need to remember and review. First and foremost, you need to make a list of what you want to be done in the room. 

  • Do you want new floors?
  • Do you want new countertops?
  • Do you want an island?
  • Do you want to switch up the sinks and appliances?
  • Do you want to remodel the pantry?
  • Do you need to add specific smart technology?
  • What is your budget?
  • What is your color scheme? Or what is the overall theme?
  • How much time do you have to remodel the kitchen?

There are even more questions you can ask yourself, but the ones above are the basic ones that will help you determine a budget, your time and what contractor you are going to hire. While many homeowners do remodel a kitchen on their own, it does take additional time and effort (and watching YouTube videos) to get the job done. A job that typically will take less than a week for a home service company to finish can take a DIY homeowner two or more weeks. Also remember, that not only will you be buying the supplies but the equipment as well. That is why we recommend working with a contractor that already has the equipment and the knowledge to get it all down in an efficient amount of time. 

The Average Cost By Kitchen Size

Kitchen remodels can vary in cost depending on the size and what you want done with them. You can find yourself spending as little as $5000 to more than $30,000. To help you get a ballpark range, here’s a breakdown by size.
