How much would something like this cost? I found this image in photo gallery here and really, really love the layout of this kitchen - from the floors to the ceiling. We're at the beginning stages of planning to renovate our kitchen and would like to get an idea of how much something like this would cost.

Our kitchen would appear to be of similar size and we're working with a budget of around $50,000.

Hello there,

You would be looking at a price between 35-40 thousand. This would really depend on sizing and material used. I would be able to give you a 3d layout and design and samples of materials used.

Thanks

One more question...I'm seeing what appears to be hardwood used in the kitchen area a lot lately and really like how it looks. Is this truly hardwood or is it some other material? I'm just curious as to why a material like hardwood would be used in the kitchen when spills are so common?

You should be ok with 50K for that kitchen if timeframe is flexible somewhat.

Hi Gosia - your budget is reasonable but it could certainly be done for less depending on finishes. As for flooring, many people are going the hardwood route, or a higher grade laminate. Most of these materials are fairly durable so spills don't become too much of an issue. We'd be happy asses the site more accurately and present materials and design ideas that would work for you. Please let us know and we'll schedule a site visit.

Hi Gosia

A kitchen like this would generally cost between $30,000 to $50,000 depends the size material layout and the amount of customization require.

Hardwood in kitchen is becoming increasing popular because it gives a clean and more open look especially when you are for that flowing open concept look. On the other hand you can find tiles and other material that looks and feel like hardwood.

Hi Gosia,

About 50,001.00. Just kidding!

From what I see, you are looking at about 40,000.00. appliances not included.

They can range from 4,000.00 to about 9,000.00. I know, my wife chose all our appliances.

Regarding the hardwood.

I have installed Walnut flooring and Bamboo wood flooring in many kitchens over the years. My last house had Oak floors for fifteen years. The odd water spill is not an issue, if wiped up. It is the dropping of a frying pan or similar object that leaves marks in the floor.

Having said that, I have had clients ceramic and marble floors chipped by dishes and frying pans.

You ceiling height will define the size of the crowns we can install in the kitchen. And that size will control the other trim dimensions for balance and look.

Hope this helps.

Hi Gosia,

Its a nice kitchen. Painted white on MDF, Currently very popular in demand. In fact we have similar with off white shade in our own show room and sold a lot for custom builders, clients looking for quality work. This is not a cookie cutter kitchen that you will find in Big Boxes.

The price depends on lots of factors that you don't see which is Soft close doors and drawers, number of drawers, what kind of drawers? Other accessories - like tilt out soap tray, Tray dividers, pull out garbage, organizing details in drawers, etc , etc.

You have a realistic budget and any good contractor will be able to do it for you.

Hello Gosia,

I'm going to weigh on this and agree that $30-$50K is a realistic budget for this kitchen. Of course, the level of finishes and the quality of workmanship will be the factors that determine which end of the scale it will ultimately be as well as plumbing and electrical considerations.

For several years now, we've had homeowners choose hardwood flooring in their kitchen, usually to have one continuous look in an open concept space or from the hallway/foyer area, but not always. Granted, it isn't for everyone; it depends on you and your family's comfort level. Porcelain tiles that look like hardwood has been another popular choice for homeowners who want the look but are thinking of the practicality.

Hi there,

The kitchen photo that you posted looks like MDF with spray paint, so it do not cost too much money. I can do it under $30,000, same look, same materials or better. (appliances not included).

Kitchen doors are made of 3 basic compositions. The cheapest are vinyl or polyester wrapped (typical Ikea), the second level is solid stained wood (low end oak or maple, more cost for exotic woods), the final make up is painted MDF doors (these can be the most expensive if you go with the antique look, as this is a multi step process). MDF doors are becoming very popular these days as most people are sick of see low end oak doors that builders have been using for years in every home. MDF (medium density fiberboard) is very stable and inexpensive, perfect when you want a painted finish. But bear in mind not all finishes are the same, doors should be painted, at least 2 coats, with a final lacquer coat to give it durability.

Hope this helps, as for your budget, should not be a problem doing this kitchen for that $$.

Good luck
