What a renovation is going to cost is dependent on a variety of factors. We cannot even estimate the cabinet cost since custom and semi custom cabinet manufacturers charge for:
› the individual cabinet (size and type)
› storage options included in the cabinet
› the type and number of doors/drawers used
› the finish on the cabinet
› the wood species used (i.e. Maple or Cherry)
In Philadelphia a major kitchen renovation of a 200 square foot kitchen costs on average between $61,746 and $119,552. A 5’x7’ bathroom remodel averages between $19,002 and $56,850. This includes cabinetry, plumbing fixtures, flooring, tile, lighting, paint, appliances (for the kitchen) and installation. This is according to Remodeling Magazine‘s 2014 report.
There are some other pricing rules of thumb.
Total price of a kitchen remodel runs: 1/3 cabinets, 1/3 (appliances, countertops, hardware, tile and lighting) and 1/3 installation. This is a very general rule and is dependent on the choices of the client. In Philadelphia as in all cities, the installation cost will be a larger due to the challenges of city construction.
In order to determine a budget, experts suggest that the kitchen should cost a minimum 10% of the market value of your house and a maximum of 20% according to real estate experts.
While Teknika carries only the highest quality cabinetry, we understand that our customers have different budgets, so we carry five brands of cabinets to fit all our customers’ budget needs. In general, the greater the ability to customize a cabinet, the higher the price.
Teknika Designers have pictures of kitchens and associated costs of the project in the different cabinet manufacturers. We will be happy to share this information with you.
