Calculate Your Kitchen Remodel Cost

The kitchen is the most heavily-used room in the home. If you have decided that your kitchen needs to be remodeled, you have a major undertaking in front of you. Perhaps the biggest hurdle you face is the kitchen remodel cost.

Kitchen Remodel Cost Varies

Depending on how extensive your kitchen remodel is, costs can run from hundreds of dollars for a do-it-yourself tuneup to five figures for a complete rebuild of your kitchen. The best way to figure out your kitchen remodel cost is to sit down and make a list of all the items involved, estimate their individual cost, and determine what you can afford.

Make A Worksheet

Put together a worksheet detailing everything involved in your kitchen remodel. Here are the items you should include:

  • Appliances: Stovetop, oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, trash compactor
  • Cabinets
  • Countertops
  • Flooring
  • Lighting
  • Walls
  • Windows
  • Sink & faucet, garbage disposal
  • Ventilation: range hood, fans
  • Extras: Pantry, wine storage, island, doors
  • Contractor Labor

For each item, get costs for alternative materials. For instance, compare countertop costs for marble, stainless steel, Corian, butcher block, etc. Price appliances at home improvement stores, online, and appliance outlets. Once you have an idea of the material costs, get labor estimates from your chosen contractor. Also give the contractor a list of the appliances and materials you prefer--he may be able to purchase them at a better price and pass the discount to you. Planning your kitchen remodel costs is a fairly daunting task, but it will keep you from the cost escalations that will occur if you don't do it.
