How much does a kitchen remodel cost?
We get this question almost everyday. Unfortunately, the answer to this question is problematic. For example, imagine asking how much a car costs? We all understand that the price of “a car” varies significantly based on its make, model, year, size, performance, upgrade package, etc. The price of a car might be $10,000 (for a used model) and could potentially be over $300,000 (can you say “Rolls-Royce?”) The same is true for a kitchen.
What we can tell you is that the “average” kitchen remodel in Sonoma County is a major investment. As the kitchen has become one of the most important rooms in the house, you should be prepared to spend at least 20% of your home’s value on the remodel. The less changes to the layout and function of the kitchen, the less you will spend. The more you change (such as removing walls and moving plumbing locations), the more you will spend. And adding square footage to your home will cost you significantly more.
