One recent email I got from a reader is interested in remodeling their 1970’s kitchen. After seen few cool promotions on TV, they are wondering how much IKEA kitchen cabinet will cost them? Well, I thought it is a very good question so I’d like to share the answer with everyone of you.
The major cost of remodeling a kitchen can be break down to cabinet, counter top, appliances, flooring, back splash. The list goes on and things could get really complicated. (But you do need to have a complete list to help you budget if you want to gut your kitchen.) We are only going to talk about the IKEA kitchen cabinet part today to give you an idea.
IKEA kitchen cabinet, standard 10′X10′ starts at only $999. The most expensive finish you will be able to find is $169/lin.ft. ($3380 for a 10′X10′ kitchen.) There are five finishes this year that had new lower price. You save $10-20 dollar per lin.ft. (It’s amazing, isn’t?) So the range is: $999-3,380for a 10′X10′ kitchen. Not too bad compare to semi-manufactured kitchen cabinets. (Usually anywhere from $8,000-25,000)
