Budgeting For A Kitchen Remodel

W.D. Smith Construction offers homeowners advice on how to prepare financially for a kitchen remodeling project.

So you’ve bought a new home and have quickly realized you will need to budget for a kitchen remodel? A common occurrence when becoming a homeowner in the Raleigh, North Carolina area as the older homes that boast more character in the quaint and historic areas of town don’t always have the most functional kitchen and dining spaces. Depending on the state of your current kitchen and the priority you place on the different areas of your remodel will affect the pricing and therefore budgeting. There are many variables that come into play when considering a kitchen remodel, for instance: identifying basic structural issues (especially for older homes), deciding whether or not to expand and add more functionality, and the standard selecting of appliances, fixtures, cabinetry, and much more. To give you an idea of what to expect to budget will depend on the “model” of the kitchen you envision. For consistency, let’s refer to these models as 1) the basic model, 2) the advanced model and 3) the deluxe model. A basic kitchen remodeling project, that can range between $20,000-$30,000 will typically maintain the same layout and reducing cost by not having to move appliances and rework plumbing or electrical. This model typically will allow for standard appliances, lighting, fixtures, cabinetry and laminate or tile kitchen countertops.

The advanced version, with costs ranging from $30,000-$40,000, will allow homeowner's with some flexibility on the layout. This model can allow for appliance rearranging and the electrical and plumbing costs associated with a new space. Another option that is available is adding a customized island (if the spaces allows) that also feature an appliance or additional sink. With this budget in mind, you can expect to implement custom cabinetry, designer hardware, stone countertops with a stone or tile backsplash and upgraded appliances. The third model, the deluxe, can vary significantly, starting at $50,000 and ranging to over $100,000 depending on the design and outside variables that can affect pricing. With this model, you can expect a complete reworking on the kitchen space featuring rich materials and accessories, custom cabinetry, small accents and details throughout with fixtures, lighting, stone mosaic backsplash, custom island and shiplap walls or board and batten ceiling paneling. Although all three models can be flexible depending on your design and the importance of certain features or upgrades, W.D. Smith Construction's team of skilled designers and contractors can help you identify which model is right for you and how to budget for a future remodel, implement a simple upgrade or begin designing your dream kitchen.
