Minor Mid Grade Kitchen Remodel

Average Cost: $20,122.00

Includes:

  • 200 sq ft kitchen with 30 linear feet of cabinets
  • no change to cabinet layout
  • Re-face Kitchen Cabinets (read more about cabinet refacing here)
  • Laminate Counters
  • Vinyl flooring
  • No island
  • new appliances
  • new sink and faucet
  • Paint kitchen

In our experience: 

Kitchen remodels make up about 40 percent of our business. For a minor kitchen remodel as described above I feel like a $20,000 budget is about right, however in my experience no one is remodeling a kitchen with vinyl flooring and laminate counters.

A more typical ‘minor’ remodel would include refacing the cabinets and installing stone counters and tile or wood floors. This would move the average cost closer to $30,000.

Major Mid Grade Kitchen Remodel

Average Cost: $59,999.00

Includes:

  • 200 sq ft kitchen with 30 linear feet of cabinets
  • Replace Cabinets with semi custom cabinetry
  • some small changes to cabinet layout
  • Add 3’x5′ kitchen island
  • laminate counters
  • vinyl flooring
  • custom lighting
  • new appliances
  • new sink and faucet
  • Paint kitchen

In our experience: 

For a Major mid grade kitchen remodel as described above I feel like a $60,000 budget is a bit high. However in my experience no one is remodeling a kitchen with vinyl flooring and laminate counters. A more typical ‘major’ remodel would include semi custom cabinets and installing stone counters, a tile backsplash and tile or wood floors. This would move the average cost closer to the $50,000 but still below the average cost listed in the report.


Upscale Kitchen Remodel

Average Cost: $119,909.00

Includes:

  • 200 sq ft kitchen with 30 linear feet of cabinets

  • Improve kitchen layout
  • Stone counters
  • Tile or wood flooring
  • tile backsplash
  • Commercial grade appliances including warming drawer, trash compactor and microwave/convection oven
  • undermount sink with filtration system
  • Custom lighting

In our experience: 

We don’t do a lot of Up Scale Kitchen remodels. However in our experience a budget of $100,000 plus would be appropriate for a remodel of this type.
