How Much Should a Kitchen Remodel Cost

How much should a kitchen remodel cost? Well, it can be a complex issue.

Basically if you don't do any of the work yourself expect to spend 15% to 20% of the price of your home. This cost is really a ball park figure because all the possible factors that make up the cost of a kitchen.

Spending 100,000 on a kitchen in a house that is worth 300,000, 33% seems a little expensive right? Maybe not if you're a professional chef and the kitchen is the most important room in the house.

That 100,000 dollar kitchen could be attainable for closer to 50,000 with some smart shopping, and doing all the labor yourself. 50,000 would be around 17% of that 300,000 dollar house,  and the best looking kitchen on the block would be at your house.

In my business the typical house is worth between 300,000 to 700,000, and the typical kitchen remodel is from 30,000 to 120,000.
