Working within a budget is possible!
A kitchen is said to be the heart of the home and I couldn’t agree more. A kitchen can sell your home even if the rest of the home is not in the best shape. Unfortunately, it is also typically the most expensive room to renovate in the house. If you are familiar with the ever increasing DIY television shows you probably think that a beautiful kitchen costs at least $50,000. Thankfully, that is not the case. The Ottawa Renovation Group’s average client does not have a limitless budget and we are very familiar with building kitchens for any budget including budgets of under $25,000.
Some things to keep in mind when budgeting for a new kitchen:
The cost to renovate a kitchen can vary significantly depending on:
the overall size
finishing materials selected
enlarging the current space
change of layout affecting electrical and plumbing supply
if City of Ottawa building permits are required
A kitchen is an extremely difficult room to put an average price on. The materials choices are so vast in a kitchen and affect price so much that a 10 x 10 kitchen can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $40,000 depending on finishes. Choosing some of the trends noted below I would estimate that an average kitchen for one of our clients would land in the $30,000 to $ 40,000 range.
A typical kitchen would take the Ottawa Renovation Group 3 to 5 weeks to complete.
Materials in a kitchen
The Ottawa Renovation Group specializes in constructing IKEA kitchens. The reason is, they produce good quality and economical kitchens that an average person can afford.
The quality of these cabinets is excellent and will last a very long time. Additionally, their storage options and accessories are second to none. IKEA is almost always the innovators in the space bringing new storage ideas before anyone else does.
With in stock cabinetry and a wide range of sizes, it is very easy to get the custom look with an IKEA kitchen at a fraction of the cost of custom made cabinetry.
