I own a home remodeling company. This answer is purely dependent on the degree of the remodel job you wish to do such as refacing pre-existing cabinetry, repainting pre-existing cabinetry, new cabinetry, relocation of appliances, full gut job, whether you keep existing layout of appliances, whether you change it, how high-end of cabinetry you wish to install, ball-bearing soft closing doors on cabinetry vs. non, tongue and groove construction vs. glue and staple made cabinetry,do you want granite, silastone, laminate, are you going to lay down laminate, hardwood, manufactured wood, tile, travertine, marble flooring? Installation of lighting...recessed, can,flush mount, etc. Are you removing any walls like dining room wall between to make kitchen larger? What's the dimensions of the room?How many feet of countertops? Do want a peninsula or island? Installing a garden window, arch, semi-circle vinyl clad or wood?
Cost range upon if you want Chinese granite(cheaper) vs. Brazilian(more expensive)
Ex: Granite $69.00 per sq. to $125.00 per sq. ft
Silastone $35.00 per sq. ft plus
laminate $16.00 per sq.ft. plus
Cabinetry tongue and groove construction vs. non
Avg 12x12 kitchen with non-tongue and groove cabinetry wall-wall cost is $15,000.00 does not include install. Double this if you want tongue and groove constructed cabinetry and add more money for ball bearing hinges on drawer fronts for softer glide.
Then add in your labor costs for install,, your floor, countertops, lighting, etc.
Bare minimum the average kitchen comes in at $25,000.00 with out all the frills. That would be laminate flooring, new cabinetry (glue and staple construction) no ball bearing hinges, laminate countertops,The issue here is you can get you labor costs cheaper right now, but everything else is material cost which still is the same.
You can shave money off of this if you can do destruction, and install yourself. Bringing down the amount to $15,000.00 with a Lowes,Home Depot pre-constructed basic cabinetry, lower cost materials, snd would include appliances, if you do it yourself. Bit of advice, If you don't need all the high-end, go midrange remodel. Seek out Home Depot and Lowes and buy ea. piece of cabinetry through them. Figure out your base, wall, corners, etc. It's cheaper and can have a great look with the great cost. They have lower priced cabinetry out on the floor, not Kraftmaid or Thomasville, these will hit you hard on the price tag. Anything in the mock showroom, stay away from! Your better off having some of your buddies come in and take down old cabinetry, take a truck to Lowes or Home Depot and fill back of truck with cabinetry you are going to need based upon measurements, base, wall, corner, sink base,pantry, etc.(gonna take a few trips)
You are being told an answer by people who do not know this industry and are giving you ranges based on nothing. The guy who said $3,000.00 that's funny considering that decent appliances will cost you that alone!
I am in this business, my husband and I took a typical raised ranch kitchen, gutted it down to the studs, removed wall of dining room, did all destruction and reconstruction ourselves, did all electrical wiring, install of lighting, installation of cabinety, installation of appliances, the only thing we contracted out was the granite work. Mind you, we put
in a full chef's gourmet kitchen with 2 sinks,6 ft of double doored refridgerator and freezer, travertine flooring, and he had moved the gas himself for a commercial stove. Given that we did all this work ourselves and have experience in this industry, we still laid down $45,000.00 out of pocket alone. Had we contracted our kitchen out it would have cost us $100,000.00
Grant it, we did showroom kitchen remodel in our home, however, I have done tons of remodels in other properties, the least expensive was painting the cabinety out, installing new countertops, new tile flooring, new knobs, cutting into doors for some glass inserts,etc. This came to $9,000.00 including brand new basic bone appliances.
It's really all relative to the type of remodel you want. Basic, Midrange, or Extensive High-end. Based upon what you figure you want, this can change and alter your price range astronomically itself.
Hope this helps!!
