When it comes to kitchen renovation cost, there are many factors to consider before you get started. After all, you don’t want to pay too much for a kitchen renovation when you don’t need to, but on the other hand, you want to pay enough to ensure you invest in a quality kitchen that will add real value to your home.
So, where to begin? Let us help you with some of the groundwork.
What is a good ballpark figure?
Let’s get straight into it. As one of the most-used rooms in any home, it’s important that your kitchen be both functional and stylish. Though kitchen renovation costs are dependent on a number of factors, including the size and shape of your kitchen, it is recommended that the overall cost should be no more than between 3-6% of the total value of your home. So, for a home valued at $500,000, a kitchen renovation costing from $15,000 to $30,000 should give you a fantastic return on your investment.

What factors do you need to consider?
So, what costs are involved in a kitchen renovation? Here is a handy rundown of the basics, to help you create a budget that works for you.
• Appliances: The cost of appliances ranges greatly, but that doesn’t mean you have to fork out thousands of dollars! Make sure to look for appliances with a good energy star rating, which is worth paying a little more for in the long run. The more stars, the more energy efficiency your appliances will have, meaning they’ll cost less to run than cheaper varieties with less stars.
• Materials: Just like appliances, there are a huge range of materials and finishes available for your kitchen renovation. For example, a more affordable (yet hardworking) laminate benchtop should only set you back a few thousand, whereas a stone benchtop will cost a little more, but also provide you with a much harder wearing, longer lasting surface. This also applies to your kitchen cabinets, drawers and splashback – make sure to do your research into the types of materials available, and whether they are suitable to your individual needs and budget.

• Kitchen size: Obviously a larger kitchen will cost more to renovate than a smaller one. Kitchen Craftsmen offer a FREE measure and quote service, which can help you budget effectively.
