Who doesn’t love a freshly painted, shiny new kitchen with gorgeous new appliances? No one! That’s why it’s one of the most bang-for-your-buck renovations a homeowner can undertake. If you’re considering remodeling in 2018, you’re not alone. As you start dreaming about that kitchen you’ve always wanted, it’s smart to begin planning a budget as well.
According to HomeAdvisor.com, the national average that homeowners are paying in 2018 for kitchen remodel is $21,988, based on broader range of $12,000 to $33,000. That said, the website reports that remodels sometimes run as low as $4,000 or as high as $50,000, depending on a variety of factors, from size of kitchen and cost of materials to scope of project and potential design fees.
A lower end remodel may include the basics, including resurfacing or custom painting cabinets, installing a tile backsplash and new sink and faucets while a higher end remodel may also encompass new high-end appliances, granite or marble counter tops, custom cabinetry and tile or hardwood flooring.
As you begin budgeting for your new kitchen, below are a list of line items for you to consider:
- Sink / Faucet
- Gas Lines
- Design Fees
While some people get excited about all the possibilities and love to do the work themselves, you may be someone who doesn’t have the time to deal with narrowing down 20 types of granite or 10 types of flooring. If you need someone to run the show or if you are overwhelmed with the scope of the project, hiring an interior designer may be a good option.
An interior designer’s job is not just to help design the kitchen you want, it’s also to coordinate the project’s timeline and manage subcontractors. Granted, it’s another expense, but the reality is that they can save you a tremendous amount of time and energy – and sometimes even money.
