How To Estimate Your Kitchen Remodel

Are you curious to learn how much a kitchen remodel can cost? Well, according to reliable reports published by Home Advisor, a kitchen remodel, on an average, can set one back 20 grands! Unfortunately, not everyone has the financial backing to splurge on high-end updates. Luckily, it is possible for you to complete your remodel on a budget; just because your project is on a budget doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.

Let´s discuss what goes into the cost of a kitchen remodel

You must pay attention to several factors when you set your budget for your kitchen remodeling project. More often than not, the total cost of your kitchen remodel heavily depends on the shape and size of your kitchen, the updates you want to include, the materials you select, and the amount of work you wish to outsource to the contractors/designers. Basically, in a nutshell, what you spend on your kitchen remodel entirely depends on you! You can either opt to go big or work with a limited budget.   

Let’s focus on the major kitchen updates that will influence the total cost of your kitchen remodeling project. Now, if you don’t want to overspend, you should attempt to know the costs in advance and then set a budget around your findings. Doing so can help keep you on top of things.

  • Kitchen cabinets

Kitchen cabinets typically make up the largest percentage cost of a kitchen remodel. Hence, if you want to budget wisely, you should choose your cabinets properly. The cost of kitchen cabinets largely depend on the type of cabinets you choose whether it is semi-custom, fully custom, or stock; the cost also depends on how many linear feet of cabinetry you require. Now, if you can’t afford to purchase new cabinets, you can always opt to reface or refinish your existing cabinets.

  • Countertops

The cost of countertops varies by material and the difficulty of installation. If you don’t want to hire the services of a professional contractor and would rather install the countertops yourself, you should opt to choose laminate or butcher-block countertops as they are easier to install.

  • Kitchen flooring

If you are on a strict budget and would like to save on kitchen flooring, you should go for cheap, but classic options such as laminate and linoleum flooring. Modern versions of these flooring types are available for purchase in a wide variety of stylish designs. You can also opt to install linoleum flooring yourself as the job is pretty straightforward, saving you money that would have otherwise gone into the pockets of contractors. However, if you intend to give your kitchen a more luxurious look, you should opt for an expertly installed cork kitchen floor. It is durable enough to last for several decades without requiring further maintenance; of course, it is relatively cheap as well.   

Basically, what we are trying to say is that it is essential for you to shop efficiently. You must shortlist features that you want and then proceed to rank them by importance. Check us out at
