How much did you pay for kitchen remodeling?

1 By default, kitchen remodeling cost calculator estimates minimum, average and maximum labor cost to complete, basic L-shaped 10’ x 12’ kitchen remodeling with standard kitchen cabinets, prefabricated laminate countertop with 4" high backsplash and ceramic tile flooring. Homeowners can easily adjust parameters and calculate total labor charges, per square foot kitchen remodeling cost and approximate time to perform the work based on kitchen dimensions and project details.

There is very low probability residential kitchen will exceed 700 square feet and technically it is impossible to fit at least 5 base cabinets, stove and refrigerator in the kitchen which is smaller than 60 Sq. Ft. For that reason calculator estimates labor cost to remodel kitchens which are bigger than 60 ft2 and smaller than 700 ft2.

2 Kitchen dimensions (width and length) in feet should be entered as real numbers means 3 inches = 0.25 feet; 6” = 0.5’; 9” = 0.75’ and so on.

3 Cost of labor to remodel a kitchen divided into three separate categories. Minimum cost is a typical labor fees for very basic low budget kitchen renovation projects acceptable for rentals or low value residential properties.

4 Kitchen remodeling cost per square foot gives an idea what homeowners are looking to invest into every square foot of a future kitchen based on its dimensions and project details.

What is basic complete kitchen remodeling?

2. Minor insulation and framing work if necessary.

3. Fixing or partial drywall replacement, installation of new kitchen flooring, kitchen cabinets, countertop, backsplash, painting and appliances installation.
