Kitchen remodeling can be expensive, with prices ranging from $18,500 to $54,000. Redoing your cabinets is on average one-third to one-half of the kitchen remodel cost. There are a number of options for redoing your cabinets, and some options can save you money.
Replacing Your Kitchen Cabinets
Replacing your kitchen cabinets is the most costly option for a cabinet makeover. It generally takes about two weeks because of all the extra work that goes into it. When replacing kitchen cabinets, everything has to leave the kitchen. That includes countertops, oven, stove, dishwasher, and all other appliances. Since everything is out of they way you have the option of changing the layout of your kitchen, but if you choose this option then you need to consider the costs of moving any plumbing and electrical. Completely replacing old cabinets with new kitchen cabinets depends on what type of cabinets you choose.
- Stock cabinets start at $4,000 and go up from there.
- Sem-custom cabinets range from $8,000 to $10,000.
- Custom-made cabinets start at $16,000 and go up from there.
While it is a very expensive option, you will have a brand new kitchen.
Refacing Your Kitchen Cabinets
How much you pay for refacing depends on the size of your kitchen, just like any cabinet makeover. Refacing your kitchen cabinets is less hassle than tearing them out completely, but it still takes a week on average. There are a couple of options when refacing your cabinets. Rigid thermofoil (RTF) doors, which feature a durable plastic coating over fiberboard, are an affordable alternative to wood or laminate doors. Plastic laminate, which comes in hundreds of colors and patterns, are durable and moisture resistant. Real wood veneers come in oak, maple, cherry and many more. You can also choose from an array of stain colors. Wood veneers are the most expensive option and must be sealed very carefully to protect against moisture. Professional cabinet refacing cost for an average size kitchen starts at $1,000 to $3,000 for laminate. If you choose to use real wood veneer, costs range from $2,500 to $6,000. It can get even more costly up to $9,000 for a large kitchen with high-quality wood veneers.
