The least invasive and lowest cost option for a kitchen remodel is a cosmetic refresh. This type of remodel focuses on updating the kitchen’s visual appearance rather than its functionality. The remodel is surface-level, without changes to structure, utilities, or appliance/cabinet placement.

Common features of a cosmetic refresh include:

  • Re-painted/stained cabinets
  • Updated countertops
  • New flooring
  • Backsplash
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Cabinet handles

A pull-and-replace kitchen remodel is a mid-range option that goes beyond a light touch-up but falls short of a full overhaul. Everything in the kitchen is removed and replaced with new items. However, there are no major structural or utility changes involved.

Unlike a cosmetic refresh, a pull-and-replace remodel involves a complete removal of the previous kitchen. From flooring to cabinets, kitchen faucets to refrigerators, you get an entirely new kitchen. The advantage of this approach is that it avoids the costly process of relocating plumbing or electrical connections.

A pull-and-replace remodel typically includes:

  • New cabinetry & hardware
  • Updated appliances
  • Plumbing fixtures
  • Updated backsplash
  • Lighting fixtures
  • New flooring

A full custom kitchen remodel is the ideal solution when a kitchen has significant design flaws or doesn’t meet the homeowner’s lifestyle needs. It provides the highest level of design freedom, allowing you to overcome the limitations of the old kitchen layout. Whether you require more cooking space or want to reconfigure the floor plan, a custom remodel offers extensive flexibility.

However, it’s important to consider the budget when opting for a full custom remodel. Modifying appliance placement, cabinetry, plumbing, or electrical systems involves specialized skills and can be costly. Structural changes, such as removing walls for an expanded or open floor plan, incur additional expenses.

A full custom kitchen remodel may include:

  • Full redesign of kitchen layout
  • Major structural changes
  • Custom cabinetry
  • New appliances
  • New flooring
  • Updated backsplash
  • New lighting fixtures
  • Custom features

What Affects the Cost of Your Kitchen Remodel?

There are several factors that may influence the cost of your kitchen remodel. Here are the 3 most important ones to consider when planning your project.

1. Level of Customization

The more customized your kitchen remodel designs, the more the project will cost. Custom work requires more labor and higher-quality products, so be prepared to pay more for custom features.

2. Project Involvement

A contractor who takes a more involved role in planning, organizing, and constructing your kitchen remodel will cost more than a contractor who offloads responsibilities to you or other subcontractors.

3. Product & Material Quality

Nobody wants to remodel their kitchen just to watch it fall apart a year later. However, high-quality materials and craftsmanship for your kitchen remodel often come at a higher cost.
