• What is the Cost of a Kitchen Remodel?

  • People always have lots of questions when they talk to us about a kitchen remodel, and the biggest one is usually, “How much will it cost?” Remodeling isn’t cheap, but updating your kitchen can improve your quality of life and increase your home’s value. Many of our clients find that the cost of a kitchen remodel is worth the investment.

    What can you expect to spend on your kitchen remodel? Here are some numbers to keep in mind.

    Cost of a Kitchen Remodel

    In general, you can expect to spend about 10-20% of your home’s value on your kitchen remodel. Here’s how those costs break down:

    • Demolition is 4 to 8% of your budget
    • Mechanical updates such as electrical and plumbing are 7 to 18% of your budget
    • Framing is 2 to 7% of your budget
    • Flooring is 8 to 15% of your budget
    • A tiled backsplash is 1.8 to 4% of your budget
    • Cabinets are 38 to 50% of your budget
    • Counter tops are 12 to 20% of your budget
    • Fixtures are 2 to 5% of your budget

    As you can see, cabinets, counter tops, and mechanical updates take up the largest part of your remodeling budget. Additionally, savings can be found by taking a look at this list and figuring out your priorities. Maybe your cabinets are in great shape, but your flooring could use an upgrade. These numbers aren’t absolute; they’re simply a guide to get you thinking about the cost of a kitchen remodel.
