Some of the biggest line items on a kitchen makeover are
- Cabinetry (30% of a typical budget)
$8,000 to $15,000:
Replacing existing appliances,
refinishing existing cabinet doors,
resurfacing existing countertops.
- Appliances (15%)
$25,000 to $50,000:
Demolishing the kitchen but keeping main appliance and plumbing fixtures in the same location.
- Countertops (10%)
$50,000 to $100,000:
Same as above while also reconfiguring the appliance and plumbing fixtures as well as electrical and HVAC.
How to save money on your kitchen remodeling project
- Face-lift vs. gut renovation: Avoid replacing cabinets as even a midrange option can run you $3,500 to $5,500.
Face-lifts should be confined to painting cabinets and updating hardware and lighting.
- Appliance package: stick with the basics on appliances.
- Plan ahead: Poor planning that leads to contractors waiting for something like a sink to arrive will send you over budget.
What is the return on investment on a kitchen remodel? You will get some of that money back when you decide to sell your home, because your home will stand out compared to others with older kitchen designs.
