How To Use Kitchen Remodel CalculatorThe 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/OptionsThe 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 ResultsBy 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 FormulaThis 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.
