How Much Should I Budget for My Kitchen Renovation?

When considering a renovation one of the first questions you’ll want answered is “how much is my kitchen renovation going to cost?” To get a firm answer you’ll need to walk through the design process with a professional, but let’s be honest – before you get serious you’re going to want to know approximately how many zeros you should expect behind that dollar sign.

It’s important to know that there are many factors which will impact renovation costs including the size of your kitchen, cabinetry material and finish, appliances, electrical work, structural needs, plumbing and more. Another important factor for determining a budget is your motivation for renovating. Are you renovating to sell or is this your forever home? This decision will have significant implications on the overall budget. Keeping that in mind, one method for very rough ballpark budgeting is based on the approximate size of your new kitchen.
