How To Use Kitchen Remodel Calculator

The majority of kitchen remodeling projects include new cabinets and countertops. Cabinets are calculated by LINEAR FEET along the wall. A typical kitchen would have a 10*10 cabinets layout, or 20 ln. feet of cabinetry. This includes both the top and bottom rows. All prices include complete install and all hardware required for proper operation.

  • 1) Enter the length of your cabinets (measured along the wall).

  • 2) Enter the square footage of your countertops. Most counters are 2 feet deep. If that's the case, take the length and multiply it by 2. Add any counters that will be installed on the kitchen island.

  • 3) Select the type of cabinets that you want installed (either new or refacing) based on quality of materials.

    Note that "enhanced" and "premium" options include the Island, better materials and upgraded parts/trim/hardware, while "basic" only includes standard wall cabinets.

  • 4) Select the countertop material of your choice.

    Note, that this includes standard installation and mid-level edge profile. For a more accurate estimate, use our kitchen countertops calculator, which gives you many more material options to chose from.

  • 5) Select kitchen fixtures - these include: Sink, Faucet and Garbage disposal. There are 3 quality options.

    Basic package includes a standard double sink, an entry level faucet and a basic 1/2 HP disposal.

    Enhanced package includes a stainless double sink, a better quality faucet and a 3/4 HP stainless garbage disposal.

    Premium package includes a cast iron / enamel or copper sink, a very expensive faucet and 1 HP stainless steel garbage disposal.

Additional Settings/Options

The first five options are standard to most remodeling projects. If you would like a more detailed estimate, click "Show More Options" button. This will display additional settings, such as:

- Kitchen Appliances
- New kitchen floor options
- Painting the kitchen.

Kitchen Appliances includes a refrigerator, a stove, range hood and a dishwasher.

There are four options: Basic, which includes entry level appliances, enhanced, which includes better, stainless steel appliances, and high-end, which includes premium, built-in appliances.

New Flooring includes a choice of 3 flooring materials typically used in kitchens: tile, hardwood or linoleum.

Painting the Kitchen you will need to enter your kitchen size (ft) and ceilings height.

Understanding Results

By default, you will see cabinets and countertop prices, as well as the job total. If you add more options, the results will appear above the total cost.

The formula we use assumes standard "NEW" installation. No custom work or removal of the existing kitchen or plumbing work is included.

Progressive Pricing Formula

This kitchen remodel cost calculator uses a special algorithm that looks at the "size of the job" and adjusts costs accordingly. For example, if your job is small - I.e. 8 sq ft of countertops or 70 sq ft of tile floor, there will be an add-on per sq. ft. This is typical in the construction industry, where you have to pay more for small jobs.

Please let us know if you find any inaccuracies, or want us to add more features to this tool.

      Hi Joey,

      It’s handy on our website 🙂 … we can’t make excel versions for technical and copyright issues. I hope you understand. But as I said – it is always available here

    I’m not sure how your calculator works. I entered the required info and hit the calculate button, but nothing happens.
    This would be very useful for estimating a basement remodel that I will be doing in about 4-5 months if I could get it to work?
    What am I missing or doing wrong?

      Lee, sometimes there is a delay with PHP script that processes the kitchen cost calculation, if there are too many site visitors at once. Try it again.

    Just a question. How could premium built in appliances (fridge, range, and oven) estimate at $5,400? It seems like that should be at least double to triple based on retail prices I’ve seen. Would wholesale or direct prices for contractors be discounted that much?

    A remodeling calculator is one of the best things a home owner can have when they are planning a remodeling project. It is very important to maintain the right balance between luxury and cost, when remodeling.

    I’m looking at complete remodel on a distressed property.
    This website is a great way to quickly analyze renovation cost.
    Simple and everything in one place.
