The True Cost Of A Kitchen Remodel

You can figure out how much your kitchen remodel should cost by breaking it down as a percentage of your home’s value. For kitchens you should spend about 10% to 15% of your total home’s value. So a kitchen remodel for a $300,000 house should cost about $30,000 to $45,000.

“Wow, that sounds pretty reasonable. But why 10-15%? And can’t different factors cause the price to change outside that range?” asks Ashley.

“Seems like the 10-15% comes from kitchens being very valuable. People love kitchens, making them very popular rooms, and there’s a lot to remodel,” Daniel answers.

He scrolls down to see what can change kitchen remodeling costs.

What Causes The Cost To Change

  • Size
  • Materials
  • Complexity
  • Underlying problems

“Those reasons make sense, but can you tell me a bit more about them?” Ashley asks.

Size is the most obvious reason the cost changes. Smaller kitchens have fewer option to remodel so they usually don’t cost as much. This can change based on the materials you choose. Higher end materials will drive the price up.

Small kitchens have less than 100 square feet total. People consider kitchens with 150 to 250 square feet an average size.

Complexity is huge for how much a kitchen remodel costs. Larger kitchens are more complex as it will take more time, materials, and such. Price also increases when installing additions like a kitchen island, tearing down walls for an open-concept kitchen, and other such decisions.

“And if you’re making more changes that’ll drive up the price too because you’re having more work done,” Ashley guesses. “That’s right! Now there’s just one more price factor,” Daniel smiles.

Any underlying problems, aka damages, need fixing first. It could be water damage beneath the floorboards, rotten wood in the walls, or something like that. You might need to hire someone else to fix them too.
