It's hard to determine the cost of any remodel as it can include anything you want. It all depends on how much money you're willing to spend on your kitchen. Some can spend a million dollars on a remodel, while others try to stick to a strcit budget. If you're on a budget, here are some of the key factors that will impact your kitchen renovation costs.
i. Kitchen size and configuration
A small kitchen will cost less to remodel than a large kitchen. Size matters as it will determine the amount of materials you use. For example, if you're changing the floor tiles, it will cost more to buy tiles for a larger kitchen than a smaller kitchen. You will also need bigger countertops and cabinets to cover the entire kitchen.
Your choice of configuration will also affect the kitchen renovation cost. For example, a homeowner who decides to retain the kitchen configuration will spend less than another who changes the entire configuration of the room. Any change to the configuration or structure of the kitchen will be an additional expense. However, sometimes the changes are worth it, especially if you don't like your current configuration. Keep in mind that changing the location of the sinks, countertops, electrical systems and plumbing work is an additional cost.
ii. Appliances and cabinets
The bulk of the remodelling cost may be spent on products such as appliances and cabinets. Your expenditure will easily surpass your budget if you don't make wise decisions. You can opt to buy custom-made cabinets that have all the high-end features you want or stock cabinets. Typically, stock cabinets are cheaper and of lower quality. They are also limited in design and sizing, which is why some opt for custom-made cabinets. The more features you want to be added to your cabinet, the more expensive it gets.
It's the same with appliances--you can spend as much as you like. If you want high-end appliances, you will get them. However, if you're trying to save, it's better to buy mid-range or budget-friendly appliances.
iii. Quality of construction
Highly skilled labour comes at a cost. Therefore, if experienced and highly skilled contractors are handling your kitchen renovation, it will cost more. The expertise of the carpenters, installers and project managers determines the way your project is handled. Preferably, choose contractors that are in your budget but have the expertise you need.
