There are a lot of factors that go into the cost of a kitchen renovation. Last week we noticed an article on Houzz, titled Expert Eye: How Much Does a Kitchen Makeover (Really) Cost? and written by Adam Scougall the Director, Designer and Creative Artist at Adam Scougall Interior Design & Decoration, Sydney.
We thought we’d highlight some of the tips mentioned in this article. And we’ll take the opportunity to let our readers know about some of the resources we’ve pulled together to help them figure out how much their kitchen renovation should cost.
How Much Will A Budget Kitchen Renovation Cost?
In the Houzz article, Adam mentions that the range for a budget kitchen makeover is between $10,000 and $25,000. We agree with this range. We have two resources that can help you get a good feel for how much a budget kitchen renovation could cost.
Budget Kitchen Renovation Tips
Adam shares some great tips in his article. We’ve summarised them below:
- Make use of Ikea’s cabinets as they come in many different finishes and sizes
- A gold tile paint on subway style splash backs can give an illusion of luxury
How Much Will A Mid-Range Kitchen Renovation Cost?
Adam mentions that a mid-range kitchen will cost between $20,000 and $50,000. We feel that $50,000 is getting to the high end in terms of the prices for our kitchen renovations. Perhaps this is because of the higher property values in Sydney.
In our kitchen renovation quiz you have a choice between a small, medium and large kitchen. You’re then prompted for the type of cabinets, hardware, bench tops etc… Even if you choose the most expensive options for a large kitchen the cost is $42,770.
Mid Range Budget Kitchen Renovation Tips
Once again Adam has some excellent pointers for saving money on mid range kitchens:
- Use Caesarstone’s Calacatta Nuvo rather than a marble finish
- Use Veneer instead of timber
- Use marble lookalike tiles
How Much Will A High End Luxury Kitchen Cost?
Adam mentions that high end luxury kitchens can cost between $50,000 and $100,000. Most of our customers fit into the budget and mid-range categories… so if you want to find out more about luxury kitchens we suggest you check out the article on Houzz.
