A simple guide to pricing your planned Bellevue Nebraska kitchen remodeler work

Remodeling ones kitchen can be one of the most satisfying and home value improving remodels one does for their home. It updates your home and can absolutely increase resale value and overall fulfillment in a section of our home where we tend to spend a lot of our time. Many consider the kitchen to be the epicenter of the home as it is where families eat most meals of the day, kids do homework and crafts, and many complete crafts and art projects in the kitchen area. Before getting too far into the planning of a kitchen remoderl, one of the first questions homeowners need to ask themselves is "How much does it cost to remodel a kitchen?" Below are things for you to consider as you plan out your kitchen remodel:


First, the cost to remodel a kitchen can vary wildly from state to state and also based on the environment in which you live-- rural or urban varying quite a bit based on location and shipping costs. Kitchen remodels in the midwest overall range from $15,000-$20,000 less than on the east or west coast due to a variety of factors that cause all products to cost more on the coasts. Remodeling magazine puts the average remodel in Nebraska and other midwest states close to $45,000-$55,000 for a lower range remodel (without a full gutting of the kitchen), or an upwards of $70,000-$80,000 for upper range kitchen remodels. Much of this depends on the products one chooses with which to replace your current cabinets, countertops, and applianaces. In the average American home overall, cabinets are the most costly change to any kitchen if you choose to replace them, as they can easily make up 25% of a person's budget. Custom cabinets usually come with the addition of custom doors, handles, trim/moulding, and inside shelves, that cost can add up quickly. Experts recommend about 20% of your budget be set for unexpected obstacles like water damage that needs replacing, electric that needs to be up to code, or sections of the kitchen that need remodeling/demolishment to accomodate your current plan. Factoring for the unpredictable is part of life.

Other aspects to consider are the countertops, which comes with many fine choices for countertop materials, styles, and layout. The budget for countertops can vary wildly, so it is best to ask your local Bellevue Nebraska handyman about the choices available. The other large part of your budget might including flooring, which includes even more choices for styles, design, and layout as compared to countertops. Kitchen appliances, however, are where people often see the biggest increase in their Bellevue Nebraska kitchen remodel budget. There are certainly a great selection of lower priced kithchen appliances, but if you are looking for newer applianaces, $1000 or more is what you should expect for each appliance as prices have certainly risen in recent years.
