How Much Does a Kitchen Remodel Cost?

The kitchen always seems to be gathering place in any house. So, if your kitchen is starting to feel too small or outdated, it can reflect poorly on the rest of the house. Remodeling your kitchen may be the most effective way to upgrade and revamp your entire home.

While many homeowners dream of remodeling their kitchen space, its cost factor may be why you’re putting renovations off until a later date. But if you’ve had your sights set on a full kitchen remodel, your dream kitchen may be more in reach than you think!

Before planning a kitchen remodel, here’s what you’ll want to consider:


What’s the Size of Your Project?

The average kitchen remodel typically costs around $25,000 to $143,000, depending on the size and scope of your project and the square footage of your existing kitchen space. Even in smaller kitchens, the cost to update appliances, hardware, and countertops rise to $25,000 fairly quickly. If your kitchen is larger in size or your plan involves additional updates, the price will run higher.

A mid-range kitchen remodel runs about $75,000 on average. A project of this scale would require updating specific design items around the kitchen, rather than a complete remodel of the layout. In fact, a high-end remodel around $140,000 would typically include a complete renovation including changes to the floorplan and overall layout in addition to other premium appliances and design updates.


How is the Cost Estimated?

There are numerous factors to take into account when remodeling your kitchen. One of the larger variables in cost for a kitchen remodel involve appliances and custom cabinetry installations. JBDB design Samantha Schmitt explains, “Depending on how large of an upgrade you choose, appliances alone can swing a budget $10,000 or more depending on the brand or features.”

It’s also essential to consider how a kitchen remodel will impact the resale value of your home. Remodeling Magazine shares the 2019 national averages on remodeling costs, resale value, and the percentage of the cost recouped, based on location and region in the United States.

Where Do I Start?

Before the process of renovating your kitchen begins, you’ll want to have a clear vision of what your ideal kitchen will entail, both in terms of design and price. Browse designs of kitchen remodels to get a feel for what you do and don’t like and begin generating ideas on what you’d like to do. If you don’t have a clear picture of what you want, that’s okay too. An experienced design-build team, like James Barton Design-Build, will walk you through other ideas you may not have thought of and work to create beautiful and functional new design that fits your budget.
