Kitchen renovations are one of the most complex projects to plan and execute – and the most expensive. That’s why it helps to have a qualified professional kitchen renovation that’s just a click away, like the kind you’d find with amNY Home Pros.
Of course, the average cost of a new kitchen has many variables. Building requirements, permits, design, materials and appliances can drive average costs up someday. But here are common starting costs for renovating a kitchen in New York City, according to Sweeten Renovations:
Budget kitchen renovation: from $25,000
Medium Renovation: Starting at $35,000
High-end renovation: from $65,000
Of course, changes to the project entail costs. Here’s the process a kitchen remodel follows, along with a timetable for each step:
- Tear out and demolish: Tear out walls, cabinets, floors, fixtures, etc. 1-3 days
- Rough work: May include moving plumbing or electrical outlets, or building a center island. 2-5 weeks
- Professional inspection: A provincial inspector certifies the work for safety. 1 day
- Approvals for co-op and condo boards. 1-2 weeks
- Finish the walls: hang and prime drywall. 1-2 weeks
- Installing doors and windows: Sealing/insulation and trim work, inside and out. 1-2 days
- Install cabinets and plumbing: Includes new countertops, sink, faucet, and garbage disposal. Do you want countertops that are specially manufactured? That saves time. 3 days – 3 weeks
- New Appliances: Includes everything from the basics – microwave, stove, refrigerator – to luxury items, such as a wine cooler or water filtration system. 1-3 days
- Laying a new floor: We prefer to do this at the end of a kitchen renovation to ensure that the new floor is not damaged by bringing in heavy appliances, dropping tools, etc. Time required varies slightly by material; wood, for example, lasts longer than ceramic tile. 3-6 days
