Many customers come to us with the same, exact question: How much does a kitchen remodel cost?

As you may have guessed – it all depends.

When budgeting for your kitchen remodel, keep in mind: there is a considerable difference between replacing cupboards and putting new knobs on the cabinets and launching a complete overhaul that replaces everything and the kitchen sink.

There are multiple factors that will ultimately contribute to the grand tally for your finished kitchen, including:

  • The duration of the project
  • The size of the space
  • The scope of the work
  • The configuration of the floorplan

Even the state you live in contributes to the final cost of your kitchen. The cost of living varies from state to state, county to county.


According to the Remodeling 2019 Cost vs. Value Report, homeowners in the South Atlantic states can expect to spend an average of $21,440 on a minor kitchen remodel this year.

Averages are based on a 200-square-foot space with 30 linear feet of cabinets and countertops. Remodeling’s report describes a midrange minor kitchen remodel as being “functional, but dated,” with an overhaul that swaps in new laminate countertops, wood paneling and drawer fronts, hardware, and the installation of energy efficient appliances including a cooktop/range, a slide-in refrigerator, and a modestly priced sink and faucet.


Higher-end renovations, on the other hand, tend to cover all bases in style, swapping in custom cabinets, hardwood floors, state-of-the-art appliances, and high-end countertops.

In fact, major kitchen remodels – both midrange and upscale – can range anywhere from $63,387 to $126,307 in the South Atlantic, adding accoutrements from islands and double-tub stainless steel sinks to commercial grade cooktops and water filtration systems along the way.

Before spending a single dime, however, take some time to seriously brainstorm your needs and desires. Discuss your ideas and concepts with any fellow decision makers and solicit opinions and creative input from your children, family, and friends. Consider the various things you currently use your kitchen for; which members of your family spend the most time there; and the ways in which you’d like to see your family’s unique style represented. This preproduction work will ultimately help you maximize your functionality and will prove invaluable when you enlist the services of a qualified contractor.
