kitchen renovation cost in 2024

The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home, making it crucial to understand the costs involved in remodeling this central space. As a professional kitchen renovation company with over 10 years of experience, we’ve identified three key components that largely determine the cost of your kitchen renovation project. Understanding these components will help homeowners navigate this complex process. But first, let’s quickly review the average kitchen renovation costs for those who need the bulk numbers right away

Average Kitchen Renovation Costs

Small Kitchen (less than 70 sq. ft.): $6000-$25000

This usually includes repainting walls, upgrading the sink, refacing cabinets, and installing a new tile backsplash.

Key Factors Determining Kitchen Renovation Costs

1. Size of Your Kitchen

The larger the kitchen, the more materials and labor are required. More space means more design work, more linear and square footage of materials, and a longer project timeline. To estimate the cost, measure your kitchen’s square footage and multiply it by approximately $250 plus the cost of new appliances if applicable.

2. Complexity of the Project

Kitchen renovations can range from simple resurfacing to full remodels. Here are the four levels of complexity:

  Resurfacing: Repainting existing cabinet doors and possibly changing the sink and faucet;
  Refacing: Replacing cabinet doors, fronts, panels, and other visual components like countertops and backsplash;
  Renovation: A complete overhaul with new design, cabinets, storage solutions, and appliances while keeping the existing layout;
  Remodeling: Extensive changes such as removing walls, expanding the kitchen, and relocating major appliances. This is the most complex and costly option.

3. Materials, Finishes, and Appliances

The cost of your renovation will also be influenced by the grade of materials and finishes you choose. Today’s market offers a wide range of options from budget-friendly to high-end. For example, hardwood floors, while beautiful and value-adding, may not be the most practical choice for a kitchen. Alternatives like tile or luxury vinyl planks can offer a similar look with better durability and lower cost. The same principle applies to cabinet doors, where man-made laminated options can provide a high-end look without the high-end price.

Practical Tips for Budgeting Your Kitchen Renovation

Measure Your Kitchen

Determine the square footage by measuring the width and length of your kitchen and multiply the total by $250. Add the cost of new appliances, which can range from $3000 to $10000 or more for a set of four (range hood, range, dishwasher, and refrigerator).

Consider Layout Changes

Keeping the existing layout of your kitchen can significantly reduce costs, as relocating major appliances and removing walls require more labor and design work.

Choose Materials Wisely

Balance quality, appearance, and cost by exploring options that offer the best return on investment or meet your specific needs and preferences without unnecessary expenses.
