What is the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel?
Planning for a remodel is exciting and takes some time. You will have a lot of decisions to make and you will have a lot of questions when trying to compile all the best information. Depending on the scope of work you choose your kitchen remodel may be as simple as removing the existing cabinets and installing new ones, or it may include a lot more work from demolishing and building new walls to adding more space and re configuring the cabinet layout.
Again, depending on the scope of the remodeling needed determining what the biggest costs associated with the project are may vary, but in general the most expensive element of any kitchen remodel is usually the cabinets. Your allowance costs will depend on the line and number of features you choose. In our article How Do I Choose the Right Cabinets? we discuss the difference between Stock, Semi-Custom and Custom Cabinets.
The appliances will probably be your next largest cost in the project depending on what you choose to replace and level of appliances you are installing. Working with a store that specializes in appliances will be the best way to match your budget and needs with in the kitchen layout out. Appliances store also tend to have more experience working with kitchen designers to make sure everything fits properly over a big box store.[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”2″ display=”basic_slideshow”]
The countertops are the next greatest expense. Again, depending on what type of material you choose this will greatly affect the allowance budget. When you are considering your budget think of it in terms of good, better, best – Formica, Engineered stone (like Silestone) and Granite. Each option has their own pros and cons and effects the budget differently.
All the carpentry, installation, mechanical, flooring, etc.. will make up the rest of you costs. A full kitchen renovation that include changes in plumbing and electrical service locations, along with all new appliances, products, and finishes, can take anywhere between 3 to 5 months depending on the size and complexity of the project.
