This is one of the most common questions clients ask at the beginning of any project.  “What will it cost?” When it comes to Kitchens we always start by letting clients know the average cost from low to high.

For a Kitchen on the low end with just basic renovations, essentially replacing what’s there now in the same exact place with minimal construction and using lower end cabinets (particle board boxes and veneer doors), plastic laminate counters, 4” plastic laminate backsplash, vinyl flooring, basic appliances in white or black finish, you are usually at a starting point of $15,000.

The average Kitchen remodel costs $50,000.  For this price range you will be able to make some changes to the layout, go with decent quality cabinets, granite counters, tile backsplash, wood or tile floor, and basic stainless steel appliances.
