The kitchen is one of the most frequently remodeled rooms in the home. It is often considered the hub of the house, the place where the family gathers to cook, eat, study, catch up, and entertain. For this reason, there are numerous levels of kitchen remodeling from simple cosmetic updates like a new countertop or backsplash to full remodels involving new cabinetry, flooring, and appliances.
Kitchen remodels can be simple and take just a few hours or days to complete by swapping out surfaces and appliances. Or, they can take months to complete, starting with full-scale drawings and a tearout. This can lead to numerous costs, including different installation and material prices.
Labor can vary as well since you may have only a single appliance installed at a flat rate of $50, or you may have a full-scale kitchen remodel with associated labor costs of roughly 20% of the project total ($5,000 on average).
