How Much Does It Cost to Remodel a Kitchen?


Kitchen remodels are amongst the most popular home renovations. Each year, tens of thousands of homeowners in the U.S. choose to renovate their kitchen. And for good reason! Remodeling your kitchen is a wise choice as far as a sensible investment is concerned. Kitchen and bath renovations provide you with the best return on investment, so you’re spending your dollars wisely.

But how much does it cost for a kitchen remodel? It depends on a lot of factors. Kitchen renovations range in price from not too much to quite a lot, depending on not only the size of your kitchen but also the scope of the project. Some homeowners decide to totally gut their kitchen and start from scratch while others only make small changes to update the room and/or make it more user-friendly.

Indeed, your ideal kitchen can be very costly, but there are ways in which you can proceed that will save you time and money and help you stick to your budget.

Not all kitchen remodels are created equal!

Not all kitchen remodels are created equal!

There are lots of things to take into consideration when you’re starting to think about your kitchen remodel and how much it will cost. You’ll need to first look at your kitchen’s footprint including its size and its layout. You’ll want to assess the condition of the items in your kitchen. Are the cabinets in good overall condition? Do the floors need replacing? Should the appliances be updated?

Of course, you’ll also want to consider your needs and desires. If you cook often and for a large group, your kitchen should be amenable to that and should perhaps include a sizeable eating space. If you’re not an avid chef, certain things might not be that important to you. And your budget will certainly impact your choices as well. Be sure to be clear on how much you can spend at the start so that you can adhere to your budget while making certain aspects of your kitchen remodel a priority.

Small-scale kitchen remodels

If your budget is modest in size, there are still plenty of things you can do to improve the look and usability of your kitchen. You can certainly stick to your budget if you plan carefully. Consider these things:

  • Improving functionality without changing the layout
  • Decide whether you need to replace your cabinets in their entirety or perhaps refinish or reface them
  • Consider replacing your old appliances with energy-saving models that could save you lots of money in the long run
  • Upgrading your countertops
  • Upgrading your flooring
  • Replacing your sink and fixtures

Mid-sized kitchen remodels

With a little more money to spend, there are some other things you can do to make your kitchen look new and up-to-date. Such a kitchen remodel could include more high-end materials and appliances. If you’re interested in a little more customization, a mid-sized remodel may be right for you. Consider these options:

  • Upgrading countertops to granite or quartz
  • Upgrading your flooring to hardwood, ceramic tile, or something else durable and easy to maintain
  • Adding an island
  • Replacing your backsplash
  • Installing new lighting fixtures and maybe under-the-cabinet lighting
  • Installing semi-custom cabinetry or refacing with high-end materials
  • Adding interesting new hardware to your cabinets
  • Purchasing a new kitchen sink with new fixtures

Large-scale kitchen remodel

If you’re “all in” for a kitchen remodel that will knock your socks off, there are all sorts of options to consider including:

  • Changing the layout of your kitchen to make it more functional and moving plumbing and electrical as needed
  • Installing custom cabinetry
  • Installing high-end countertops and flooring
  • Choosing “smart” appliances
  • Adding new lighting
  • Installing a new sink with handsome upscale faucets and built-in filtration

How Much Does It Cost to Remodel a Kitchen?

So how much will MY remodel cost?

In reality, kitchen remodeling projects can cost anywhere from about $10,000 to $100,000 or more, depending on your choices.

Countertops can be expensive. So can appliances and flooring. However, the largest expense will likely be your cabinets. How much you spend on them will depend on which direction you choose to go. If you tear out your whole kitchen and purchase custom cabinetry, you can expect to pay a lot. If you choose to reface your cabinets to make them look brand new, you’ll spend much less and still enjoy a pleasing result.

When you consider purchasing custom cabinets for a kitchen remodel or refacing project, each kitchen is different and price is largely based on the size, style of doors, and the scope of your individual project.
