In our industry, a lot of companies will ask you for your budget. It seems difficult to establish a budget when you don’t know what it means for your kitchen. The national or regional averages, like those above, are not much help except as a point of reference. You might have your own preferences and your home is not the same as everyone else’s, so your design and construction issues will be unique.
For those who don’t fully know their budget we offer a different approach. We believe the budget should evolve. For a consultation fee we will meet in your home and discussing some ideas, we will put together both a preliminary design and pricing to help establish a starting point. We usually price several selections from one or more cabinet lines and a range of countertop possibilities along with allowances for all of the remaining selections you will need to make. It will be much easier to make selections of cabinets, countertops, etc. when you can see how much they cost and how they affect the overall project cost. Modification of the design and the scope of work can also have an impact on the budget. Now that you can see what things cost it will be easier to establish your budget and decide what you want to include in your new kitchen.
