Kitchen FAQ

How much will my new kitchen cost?

The short answer is that it depends. Prices can vary widely depending on which direction you want to go. A top of the line extreme kitchen like you see on TV shows can run upwards of six figures. Honestly the costs can really vary.

There are so many variables: the age and shape of your house, the size of your kitchen, the amount of work required and the quality and scope of the materials and details chosen are just a few of the variables.

However, according to Remodeling Magazine —national averages for a complete kitchen with mid-range selections run from $21,246 for a minor remodel to $54,909 for a major remodel, and the average for what is called an upscale kitchen is $109,935. Check it out. Your cost may vary.

BUT, we can do quality kitchens starting under $10,000 for a moderate size kitchen that does not require much construction.

How can I establish a budget that works for me?

In our industry, a lot of companies will ask you for your budget and then they will do everything they can to “crunch” the numbers to come in at or below your stated budget. But, it is near impossible to establish a budget when you don’t know what it means for your kitchen.

The national or regional averages, like those above, are not much help except as a point of reference. You will have your own preferences and your home is not the same as everyone else’s, so your design and construction issues will be unique.

We take a little different approach. We believe the budget should evolve. After meeting in your home and discussing some ideas, we will put together both a preliminary design and pricing to help establish a starting point. We usually price several selections from one or more cabinet lines and a range of countertop possibilities along with allowances for all of the remaining selections you will need to make. It will be much easier to make selections of cabinets, countertops, etc. when you can see how much they cost and how they affect the overall project cost. Modification of the design and the scope of work can also have an impact on the budget. Now that you can see what things cost it will be easier to establish your budget and decide what you want to include in your new kitchen.

How long will it take to have my new kitchen installed?

Replacing cabinets can take as little as 2 to 3 days, more for a larger kitchen or an intricate design. If the counters can be ordered ahead the kitchen could possibly be completed in the same timeframe. If counters have to be measured after the cabinets are installed—it can take an additional 2 to 3 weeks to fabricate and install the countertops. Additional time is required for any needed plumbing, electric or construction work, flooring, backsplash work and painting and decorating. For a kitchen project that includes construction, electric, lighting, etc. it is not unusual for it to take 4 to 6 weeks from start to the installation of the tops with additional time for finish work like backsplash, flooring and painting.

Do you help with product selections, pros and cons of materials, etc?

Of course we do. We price several levels of cabinet and counter selections so you can get a feel for the cost versus the quality and style that you have to choose from. Typically, we will try to suggest products that are consistent with the quality of the cabinets and counters that you choose. We will try to make sure many possibilities are considered.

How Can I Open Up My Kitchen And Make It Larger?

Depending on the architectural design of your home, the degree to which your kitchen can be expanded differs. In a typical case, we inspect to see if there are any load-bearing walls making up the kitchen. After that has been determined, we offer a set of options for expansion including wall tear downs, bump-outs, pass-through’s, new cabinetry and much, much more.
