If you are on the fence over remodeling your current kitchenette, the first step is to find out how much you should expect to pay. Similarly, if it’s been a long time since you revamped the kitchen area, it’s rather smart to brush up on some figures and estimates. Let us help you uncover the ideal kitchen estimate you should be paying for a remodeling job so none of those contractors can rip you off. In short, a kitchen remodel should range between $100 -$150 per square foot area. Before we move further, let me highlight that kitchen estimate prices will vary considerably depending on your renovation model, the (square foot) space covered, and the area you live in.
Regardless, we are talking about a lot of $$$.
Countertop + Backsplash
No wonder countertops and backsplashes are on the top of the list. These two areas will single-handedly dictate the estimated total cost for your remodel. Select from marble, granite, or wood for your countertops to set the tone for your cooking house. Moreover, don’t shy away from splurging on the backsplash as it is a highly visible accent that can make or break the look. Select rustic farmhouse tiles, or modern clean white ones to add the necessary flair to your space.
The finishing, styles, and makes for kitchen cabinets are extensive, to put it humbly. Cabinets will usually take up one-third of your entire kitchen remodel cost. The easiest way to calculate the total estimate for the kitchen is to multiply the square feet of existing cabinets by the price per square foot of each product you shortlisted. Remember to include a budget for installation as well, because installing cabinetry is a time-taking possess.
You may already have all the appliances in your existing kitchen, but some might need to go to gel in with the updated look. We advise sticking around the same materials and finishes to active a cohesive look- stainless, graphite, or glass. For instance, you may want to keep your hob, refrigerator, and dishwasher. On the other hand, you could trade away the old microwave, oven, and small appliances to match up with the rest. Another brilliant technique is to hide away all your appliances using integrated panels. A cabinet door will be placed flush across the appliance to make it hide in plain sight!
At the end of the day, it’s totally up to you!
Lighting and Electrical Work
We can’t stress enough the importance of lightning in any interior space, especially the kitchen. It’s best to allow natural light to flow in as much as possible to keep the space open, light, and breezy. Moving on, you may choose under-cabinet lighting, overhead light fixtures, and spotlights to add warmth at the perfect spots.
Plumbing Fixtures and Installation
While most kitchen remodels do not require major investments in plumbing, it is advised to change your faucets and sinks. You see, plumbing fixtures lose shine over time and they do have an expiration date. Using old fixtures means you will be spending more on the repair. Thus, paying more in the long run.
