We Need More Elbow Room

“Do you mean more room for elbow macaroni?” Matt asks in confusion.

Ashley laughs under her breath. “No, Matt, I mean we need more room in our kitchen. It felt kind of cramped last night when we were all hanging out in here.”

Matt frowns as he thinks. “Now that you say it, I think you’re right. We were all pretty close. Getting from one side to the other was like working your way through a crowd.”

“Exactly! So let’s remodel it to better fit our lifestyle. Open-concept design, an island in the middle, natural stone countertops, oh the list is endless,” Ashley sighs dreamily.

Price Factors

There are 4 main reasons the cost of remodeling a kitchen changes. They are size, materials, complexity, and if there are any underlying problems.

The size determines the number of materials and the amount of time it’ll take. This also plays a part in complexity. Smaller kitchens can only fit so many of the crew at once.

With materials, it’s all about quality. Really good materials are more expensive upfront, but they do tend to look nicer and last longer. Lower-end materials can look like higher-end ones, but they usually don’t last as long.

Complexity can mean a lot of things. Some materials are harder to work with, design styles are very intricate, the layout may make things more difficult, etc.

Not all problems can be seen during an estimate or consultation. For example, you remove the cabinets to find rotting wood or busted drywall. Any discovered water damage needs fixing before moving forward.
