The Kitchen Remodel: The Cost Revealed!

 

image

BEFORE:  how the kitchen looked before the dining room was included in its space.

A few days ago, I showed you this attractive kitchen/living room/dining room/family room makeover in a west Houston house.  As expected – so many of you loved it and there were a lot of questions asked in the comments section.   The homeowner was gracious enough to answer all those questions – including the most personal one of all – how much did it all cost?   Care to guess?   Below is a quick recap of the remodeling:

 

 

image AFTER:  The kitchen which now includes the former dining room.

 

 

image BEFORE:   The view from the family room looking into the kitchen and breakfast room.

 

 

image AFTER:    The family room is now open to the kitchen and breakfast room since the door was removed, along with the pass through.

 

 

image BEFORE:   Not only was the kitchen remodeled, but the wall between the family room and living room came tumbling down, the media center was also removed, and all the dated parquet flooring was replaced.

 

 

image AFTER:  The living room became the formal dining room, while the family room is now open to the newly repurposed dining room.  All the flooring was replaced with hand scraped hardwoods.  The windows received new wood Plantation shutters.  Care to guess the cost of this all?

 

 

image

AFTER:   The homeowner took much inspiration from Sally Wheat’s kitchen.  Here – you can see the open cabinets which she first saw in Sally’s kitchen.   Additionally, the pendants over the bar were another element she borrowed from Sally’s kitchen.

 

 

 

image

Sally Wheat’s kitchen – the homeowner’s original inspiration for her own dream kitchen.  She told me that she studied every element in Sally’s kitchen for months before she began her own remodeling!

 

The homeowner acted as her own designer and by doing so – she saved much money by not having to pay for professional advice.  While this is usually not recommended for most people, the homeowner felt she was up to the task.    She hired the contractor “Superior Exterior” (#281-536-7605) who came in with a very reasonable bid.    But exactly WHY was this job so reasonable?    There are several important reasons why costs were kept down.    Most important – all plumbing was kept in the same place.    Any time you start to move pipes around, costs can skyrocket!     The windows all remained in place also – another huge cost savings.   New windows can be so expensive.  Trust me on that.   I replaced one small metal window with a charming wood casement – but all that charm cost me plenty!    I didn’t have the nerve to tell my husband how much it cost until after the window was installed.  

 

 

image

My Kitchen Remodel:   This small casement window cost me more than my new refrigerator and dishwasher combined!   Now that it is all paid for, it was worth it, but truth be told, I almost fainted when the Pella rep casually told me how much it was going to cost me.    This was one expense I didn’t tell Ben about until it was all over with and installed – I knew he would say “no, we don’t need a new window” – but we did.   Without this one element, I don’t think my small kitchen would look nearly as cute!  I love cranking its doors open on mild days, I feel like I’m in the Cotswold's!!  

 

 

image

The homeowner has gorgeous inset cabinets – which are usually an upgrade.   This was another detail she saw in Sally Wheat’s kitchen that she coveted.   While inset cabinets might be too expensive for some remodeling jobs, the contractor had the cabinets built on-site, thereby saving the homeowner a bundle on what custom cabinets built off-site would have cost.    And they are beautiful!   I love the feet on the bottom of the cabinets – a nice extra touch that makes them look truly vintage.    Saving on the cabinets and windows and plumbing allowed the homeowner to splurge in some places – her sink, for instance.   It’s a Shaw’s Original Fireclay sink.   These beauties don’t come cheap, but they are gorgeous and are worth every single penny.   

 

 

image

DURING:    The living room turned dining room is opened up to the family room once the wall is cut.

One other major place where the homeowner saved money was the wall between the living room and family room.    Apparently, this wall is a load-bearing one – taking it down completely would have really raised construction costs.  Most likely a steel beam would have had to be placed in the opening to keep the second floor from falling through.  Instead the contractor cut a 13’ wide opening – almost like a large doorway.   I actually prefer this to removing the wall completely.   It leaves a definition between the two rooms, allowing for different paint colors in the two rooms, if preferred.  

 

image

By including the former dining room into the kitchen, it allowed for the homeowner to have enough room for a large built-in computer desk on one side, and extra storage on the other.  The regular sized refrigerator was built with cabinets on top and around it, making it seem at first glance like a more expensive built in version.

 

 

 

image

Ready to guess at the price?

 

The final cost of the remodeling was $48, 900 !!!     Truthfully, I was shocked at this price, expecting it to be much more!    Don’t forget – all the different flooring was replaced with gorgeous hand scraped hardwoods by Anderson, all new cabinets were built and granite was installed, along with a subway tile backsplash.     The homeowner wants you to know that this figure is for the remodeling and does not include the cost of the appliances, hardware, and light fixtures – she paid for that herself which probably adds another $3,000 to the final cost.   Remember, she saved money on her refrigerator by buying a standard size and building the cabinets around it – making it look like a much more expensive built-in model.   The hardware came from Restoration Hardware, but I’ve seen bin pulls on Ebay for much less. 

 

Some questions below were asked of the homeowner – she graciously answers for us:

1.   The cabinets are painted Sherwin Williams’ Divine White.

2.   The counter tops are:   Arizona Tile - black honed granite.    They look more charcoal gray than black and resemble soapstone, which was just the look she was going for.     She further tells us:      “Make sure the contractor professionally seals the granite several times, one seal is not enough.  It works great.  I do not worry about spills.  I clean them with a granite cleaner, not a glass cleaner.”

3.   The Farm sink:     “Yes!   Extend the countertop over the sink, cleaning is easier, no grout to mess with.”

4.   Downdraft:    “Yes, I have a downdraft on the stove.   It works great for me and this is where I saved money.    I personally like the look better.”

5.   The questions about placing the ovens next to the refrigerator:     The homeowner says:  “The reader brings up a good point about it not being energy efficient.  I would have to agree, but it did not cross my mind at the time.”  

Note: I, too, have my ovens next to my refrigerator and when we did this – we placed extra insulation between the two.   In almost 17 years of living here, it has never been an issue at all.    I was worried about this at first, but truly, I have never had the refrigerator not cold enough!

I hope we have answered all your questions about the cost and remodeling.   If you have any other questions – I’m sure the homeowner will be more than willing to answer them!

  1. Yowser, that really is bang for bucks!!!! I thought it would be considerably higher for that, with the amount of territory that was covered. What a great job!

    btw, i saw Annechovie's print yesterday when i snuck out to see It's Complicated - i almost squealed :)

  3. Kudos to the homeowner for sharing all the pertinent info...including the cost. In my opinion, cost is simply a fact--equivalent to color or manufacturer--and there is no need to hide it (nor, of course, to brag about it). But maybe that's the accountant in me talking!

  4. What a beauty... such a magical transformation!!! Oh how I love people who share! I had such a nasty experience with someone who was not prepared to share information on her home. Her venom extended far and wide into my small town and I swore from that moment on that I would share, share, share, with anyone who asked...the world is big enough for more than one of everything!... and I am so flattered when people ask anyway.... thank you 'homeowner' for sharing! A-M xx

  5. A big thank you to the homeowner. It's a shame this sort of info isn't available. I'm sure it would crush some fantasies which eventually are crushed after much effort from the homeowner and architect/designer/estimator.

    I thought it would be more. But it is a $50K+ kitchen redo. And it turned out really, really nice.

  6. Not as much as I expected either! Isn't it interesting how much things like great windows can be though!?

  7. Thank you to the homeowner for sharing all of this--including the price. In my opinion, inset cabinets are worth every penny. That being said, we are getting ready to do a kitchen redo--but will be keeping very nice cabinetry which is not inset. (We built our house ourselves 17 years ago--so the cabinets are nice quality but not inset). Since that time, we have built a farmhouse and done another kitchen (log house) and both have inset cabinets. I love them!

    I think that you made the right decision to go for the new casement window in your kitchen. It makes the kitchen, and it is cheaper than a trip to the Costwolds!

  9. Thanks to you and the homeowner for sharing more details! I'm always curious to know what a remodel like this costs. It's good to know there are ways to save money and still have a first rate kitchen.

  11. Brava! That's a fantastic-looking kitchen and I'm crazy for the pendants over the peninsula.

  12. I missed your original post on this remodel, and I stopped in my tracks with the first (before) pic - it looks JUST LIKE a home I rented in the Braeswood area years ago - same floor plan, for sure!

    The homeowner did a stunning job, and it brought back a lot of memories of the kitchen redo we did in our first home in the Heights - one I too did without a designer. At the time, I thought nothing of it, but I'm taking your remarks about the talents of this homeowner as a compliment myself, if that's OK by you!

    P.S. - I'm trying to scrounge up my old B&A's - think you might like 'em!

  13. That is SO expensive! I would never spend that much on a kitchen. My husband and I found a cute cute cute house in Houston for $69,000, and it had a pool. $69,000 for an ENTIRE 1800 square foot home. Why would people spend so much on a remodel?

  18. Thank you Homeowner and Joni!

    I'm one of those nosy Houstonian's who wanted to know. Sounds like a very reasonable deal. Basically three rooms were remodeled if you think about it. I'm sure that added at least $100,000 to your property market value.

    When is it up for sale??

    Thanks!!

  19. Loved seeing all the cost and the details here. So helpful to show us all where cost come from instead of just the beautiful post image. Big kudos to that homeowner,too, she went through quite and undertaking and clearly got exactly what she wanted (while saving loads).

  22. So glad to see all the details and to know they were able to keep the costs down without sacrificing style, something I admire and strive for with my own renovations.

    Did they do the entire house? I would love to see even more of their lovely home.

  23. Beautiful! Thanks to everyone for sharing. I am in the beginning stages of kitchen remodel myself and am looking at Anderson engineered floors. My problem is color and I love what she chose, can I get the name of it? I just received a sample of the Virginia Vintage in Flintlock and it is too dark for me. I don't want to be a slave to my floor!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I agree about kudos to the homeowner's design and to the team that executed this redo on, for all things considered, a fairly modest amount of money. In addition to becoming more design savvy, I think the sharing of the financial information makes us better planners and shoppers. In this economy no one can afford to make big mistakes. Thanks to all for contributing to this post.

  25. Very informative.
    You save us alot of leg work and grief!
    Wish I had $50K! I could re-do my kitchen, finish my master bathroom, fix the roof, replace four old windows, and redo my yard.

  27. No way. I was guessing $160,000 and I thought I was being conservative! I sat here with my mouth wide open when I read the actual cost. Amazing! I have to say, though, that I think a guess of $3000 more for the appliances, hardware, and lighting is awfully low. The appliances *alone* are probably more than that. There are two stoves there, and the fridge was probably at least $1500 (we just bought one that was similar but not s/s). At any rate, though, that final expense is AMAZING. And it's really, really gorgeous. I'd say this homeowner really designed the socks off this space :)

  28. i really love that she shared this info! especially having just done our own, to compare it to. our kitchen, which is maybe a third in size of hers, would have cost about $20,000 in renovations if we had hired an outside contractor. fortunately, my husband is a home builder, so he was able to do everything by himself for only $10,000. it's nice knowing how much we saved, and that our kitchen is worth way more. it just goes to show how much money actually goes to labor! we have received such amazing feedback, that my hubby and i are now wanting to start flipping homes as a hobby. thanks again for sharing this info with all of us!

  29. The price does seem reasonable..., but I'm thinking twice now about having ALL the downstairs windows replaced in my 1930's Dutch Colonial. Your window is a stunning focal point though, I bet you enjoy it every day very much!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Another great post. I love how you balance 'aspirational' with 'achievable' and even get your subject to spill how much they spent. Your taste level is way up there but you still get down to the nitty-gritty details. That's a pretty rare combination.

    You would have been a great magazine editor. (That's a compliment btw... :)

  32. Wow , Love that makeover :) Kitchen is gorgeous :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Really interesting post. I wonder what she thinks about the functionality and work flow of the kitchen? Seems like the space between the refrigerator side and the sink side is too wide to be a galley, but not wide enough for an island. Looking at her original kitchen, it doesn't look like her spacing was much better, so maybe this wasn't a big consideration or even a practical one given the space.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That is an amazing project. Not only the kitchen but the re-working of the floor plan was worth every penny. I can't believe the price, what a deal! Obviously a great contractor too. Thanks for sharing this and Sally Wheat's projects.

  35. I love the fact that the corbels in the kitchen island compliment the architecture of the space. Also the scale of them is so beautiful.

    Beautiful Renovation!

  44. I just finished a kitchen and to offset the energy issue having the stove next to the refrigerator by inserting an end panel withadditional insulation built in between them. (I didn't have any other options in this floor plan.)

    ReplyDelete
  45. WOW! is all I can muster . . . what a beautiful job and for that cost. Joni, as you know I'm in the midst of a major construction project myself which includes a new kitchen within the existing space. I've been keeping a file accounting for all the costs. Needless to say, I'm way, way above $48K for my kitchen cabinets alone, not including counters, flooring, appliances, etc. Time to back my bags and move to Houston! The photos are incredible . . . I just pray my kitchen looks as good.

  46. Joni,

    Your homeowner got a great deal. I still haven't tallied all the bills from our kitchen remodel. I'm not sure I really want to know what the final $$$ was! One day, when I'm feeling strong I'll do the tally. Hope you have a great week.

    Come by my "Week of White" this week. I'm having a great give away too that I think you especially will like!

  55. JONI--

    A brilliant and insightful and inspiring post.

    Bravo to you.

    I adore the window! It makes the room.

    All of your millwork and wood trim and detailing is superb.

    I love your very restrained color--well, off-white and black/dark brown--which pulls it all together.

    Best of all: it respects the house and it totally appropriate and right for the architecture of the existing house.

    Bravo to you.
    There is so much 'service' here--it is like a complete design education on how to do and understand and undertake a remodel.
    Bravo to the brilliant JONI!..

  83. Hello,
    Nice blog about kitchen remodeling
    Decorative hardware is the much sort after kitchen remodeling tools. When you think of remodeling your kitchen, replacing the kitchen knobs is among one of the top five things on your list. These knobs are made of different materials like iron, bronze, zinc, brass, steel, etc. You can also find different brands of these knobs and to top the list are Amerock knobs.

  84. That's a great looking renovation of your kitchen. The color and design make the kitchen look so inviting and classy. It's always great to see do it yourself kitchen refacing turn out so well. When projects turn out like this, it's hard to believe that you stuck with the old kitchen so long.

  100. Not at all surprised. I figure the cost of building OR renovating when you do everything new and with top quality to be somewhere between $800 - $1,000 per square foot.
    A $50,000 dollar kitchen (give or take) would be a 'typical' estimate for that room.

  103. Your kitchen is my dream. I live in an old house and we made some cosmetic changes before we moved in Kitchen remodeling in orange county ca. We want to do a kitchen renovation in a year or so. Our contractor says we should just rip off the entire back of the house. Looking at your pictures gives me the courage to do it. Thanks for doing this post.
