According to Today, the average cost for a kitchen remodel is $15,000 to $20,000 — without the appliances. We've read elsewhere that the average kitchen renovation costs $45,000.
Of course, costs are often controlled by things like region and city area; a New York City kitchen renovation is probably going to cost far more than one of comparable size in Kansas City. Costs can be driven by location, size of the kitchen, and the quality of appliances. You can opt for less expensive IKEA cabinets, or have them built by hand to be completely custom to your kitchen. You can also do demolition and much of the installation yourself, or contract everything out.
So, we're curious. Are you willing to share how much you spent on your kitchen remodel or renovation? What did you choose to spend on? Are you in an urban or suburban area? And are you happy with how you spent your renovation budget?
