Why Is Kitchen Remodeling So Expensive?, Brighton, New York

Kitchen remodeling can add thousands of dollars of value to your home. But when looking into this home improvement project, you may find that the prices are higher than you’d expect. Don’t let that scare you off from starting your own project. Here’s why prices are high and how to make sure you’re getting your money’s worth when choosing a remodeling company.

A Guide to the Cost of Kitchen Remodeling

What Influences the Price?

kitchen-remodeling-rochester-NYNearly all kitchens require some form of custom cabinets to perfectly fit the room, and this can cost as little as $5,000 or more depending on the brand of cabinet, style, wood, finish, and most importantly, the design. 

Labor is another key feature that all kitchen remodels require. The cost of framing new walls, installing cabinetry and appliances, and doing plumbing or electrical work will cost another $5,000 to $15,000, especially if you have an older home. Add in the price of installing tile flooring and painting and the expense rises several thousand dollars.

How Can I Get the Best Value on my Kitchen Remodel?

The best way to account for the high cost of a kitchen remodel is to work with a contractor and builders you trust. Choose a company that has decades of experience in remodeling and offers high-quality brands. Check out different showrooms to see which styles you like and look for a business that provides designer help so you can work together to create the kitchen of your dreams.
