As you can see from the pie chart above. More than half the cost for a kitchen remodel go to Cabinets, countertops and installation labor.
We do not recommend trying to save money by buying cheap cabinets! Especially if you are going to install stone countertops. Low quality cabinets will only last 5 to 6 years before the finished and hardware start to have problems. Cabinets are hard to replace.
Countertops are easier to replace so if the budget is tight consider installing laminate countertops for now and them upgrade in a few years.
