Did you recently move into a new-to-you home, but the previous occupant’s kitchen design is a bit dated? Maybe you have lived in your home for a while, but things are starting to look worn or losing their functionality. You need more space. (Plus, you’ve had your eye on that professional-grade gas stove and drop-in kitchen sink…) Many people dream of kitchen remodeling but wonder about the costs involved. At Booher Remodeling Company, each kitchen remodel is different, so costs can vary quite a bit from project to project. However, we wanted to share some industry data with you so you can get a rough idea of what kitchen remodeling might cost. kitchen remodel

Major Kitchen Remodel

A major kitchen remodel is more than just paint color or updating appliances. According to experts, a major kitchen remodel in 2015 involves updating an approximately 200-square-foot space with the following typical remodels:
  • New, partial-wood cabinets
  • Kitchen island
  • Laminate countertops
  • Standard, stainless-steel double sink
  • Custom lighting
  • New, energy-efficient appliances, including wall oven, cooktop, ventilation system, built-in microwave, dishwasher, and garbage disposal
  • New flooring
  • New paint on walls, ceilings, and trim
For this type of project, the current kitchen remodel—based on national averages—costs around $56,000.

Minor Kitchen Remodel

Unlike a major kitchen remodel, a minor kitchen remodel focuses less on improving functionality and more on just updating existing elements. Remodeling reports that the national average cost of a minor kitchen remodel (also about 200 square feet) is around $19,000 and includes the following home improvements:
  • New cabinet doors & hardware
  • Updated wall oven & cooktop
  • New laminate countertops
  • Mid-priced sink and faucet
  • New flooring
  • New paint or wall covering on walls and existing trim
