I am curious - what are the options to counter tops -- what is the price difference?

And what are the options for cupboard--price difference?

I was simply gong to educate my self by speaking to the contractors and getting estimates but this is harder than it looks, so I have come here.

I am looking to re model my kitchen. I have sent emails to about 7-8 contractors-only 3 have replied. I have met with two and one is coming by this week. I kind of want to know what I am looking for, but I have no idea on pricing, so I tell them I am not sure.

I simple told the last contractor---- medium range-he mentioned soft close cupboards--sounded nice?

Looking for prices and advice.

Hi Ravindra,

Cabinets: Mostly the price is different because of the door spices and style. Second is the box material - Particle boards, Plywood or marine ply wood. Then comes the accessories like soft close hinges, slides, drawers construction like wood dove tail is highest and so on list is endless.

Counterctops: Quartz, Granite and Laminate are more popular. The other are soap stone, tiles, butcher block , Glass, steel less steel etc.

The bottom line is you can spend as much as you want but need to see with design, flow of the house exterior and interior, if you spend too little is waste and spend too much you can't get your money back when you sell.

Look for some one who has show room and can give you complete design to finish experience.

We have a show room and give design consultation for free show 3D views computer even before it's build.

Good luck.
