Kitchen Remodeling and Design
The layout of your kitchen will determine how cook-friendly your kitchen is.
Will I have enough space to cook when someone else is in the kitchen?

Will I be able to easily rinse dishes and load them into the dishwasher?
Do I prefer a range or a separate cook top and oven?
Do I need a prep sink and a cleanup sink?
Do I need an eating area in the kitchen?
Do I prefer modern and industrial look or traditional and conservative look?
How many hours am I going to spend in the kitchen daily?
How many days a week am I planning to cook?
How many times in my life are we going to remodel a kitchen?

So how much will a kitchen remodel cost?
Use our online & interactive Kitchen Remodel Cost Calculator to help you budget your kitchen remodel. The purpose of this online Kitchen Remodel Cost Calculator is to provide you with a quick and easy way to calculate an average kitchen remodel. Please make changes as you deem necessary.
How to use the Calculator:
1. Input the amount of quantity for each work item. The calculator will automatically calculate the amount of total labor & material cost
(quantity of work x unit price=cost of work item).
2. You can change work item descriptions and unit prices to more accurately suit your project.
3. The “DIY?” column allows you to analyze your budget based on doing certain tasks yourself. Simply place an X by the work item that you are going to “DIY” and the calculator will automatically calculate the cost savings and overall budget based on your selections.
1. Alter the unit costs to more accurately depict your project.
-Labor: The labor unit costs shown in the calculator are the baseline production costs that would be seen on an average kitchen remodel approximately 15’x10′. Economies of scale- In construction, labor is more economically/efficiently produced as the quantity of work increases. For example, installing 10sf of floor tile may cost $150 to install or $15.00 a sf. However, a crew may be able to install 100 sf of floor tile for $200 or $2.00 per sf.
-Material: Change material prices if you have already selected materials and know the cost of those items to more accurately estimate your material cost.
The price tag for making over a kitchen can vary greatly, but here’s a basic breakdown of remodeling expenses, plus some ideas on where to save and when to splurge.
Breathing new life into an outdated or inefficient kitchen can be the smartest money a homeowner spends. Kitchen remodels deliver more bang for the buck than any other home project, offering 80-85 percent return on investment. When planning your kitchen redo, the first step is setting a budget.
Every remodeling project is unique, and costs vary depending on the homeowner’s budget, tastes, and priorities (a minor redo can be $5,000, while an upscale overhaul can easily top $75,000). In general, however, materials account for 80 percent of the budget, while labor costs represent 20 percent. According to the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA), the largest expense in a kitchen remodel is cabinetry, which can account for about 30 percent. After labor, appliances are the next biggest expense, eating up about 15 percent of the budget. Countertops are about 10 percent, and flooring makes up 7 percent. The smallest expenses, at about 5 percent each, are lighting, plumbing fixtures, doors and windows, and walls and ceilings.
