Est. cost to reno this kitchen?

wildcat109February 25, 2013
Possibly looking to get more space here. Appliances are in good shape but looking to knock out a wall to get more counter space and update as well. All input is greatly appreciated!

Even if we know which wall you are planning to knock out, it would be difficult to provide a dollar amount since they do vary from coast to coast, assuming you are in North America.

Gotcha, Sorry- new here and no experience with this. Thinking the wall with the sink as it is actually the side of house. Seems like that would be easier than an inside wall? Not sure if that is correct or not. We are in Texas.

Wildcat, the best thing you could do is decide what your budget is and find a professional on Houzz, in your area, to do feasability study for you. There are many variables involved with a remodel, a professional can ask you the right questions as to what is important to you, and come up with a design that will work for you. Whether you have someone do the build, or you do it yourself, a good plan is essential.

Louis Pardoe - if wildcat is planning on removing an exterior wall, I would hardly think his budget could stay under $7500. And even without removing walls, that seems like a very low number if they are going to be replacing cabinets.

Is there a room behind the sink wall or is that the exterior and you need to add the extra space?

Adding space is more costly than remodeling exisiting space. I would get three estimates from contractors.

That is the exterior wall. We would try to salvage the existing cabinets but would need to add some additional storage as well. There is no existing pantry at this time for example.

Norm Walters makes sense--follow his instructions. Remodels are not as easy or inexpensive as you may think.

I agree with Dytecture, get a few companies to provide estimates. Make a wishlist too: this will help you make decisions down the line. One word of advice: your most worthwhile investment is in quality plumbing and electrical.
