Hi Mieyun, having just completed a kitchen remodel I can say that it was both fun and exhilarating as well as challenging and frustrating.

You will lose your kitchen for two months, eat take-out food almost every night, have to deal with ever-present contractors, and be faced with never-ending decisions. And guess what? In the end, you'll have your dream kitchen and think it was all worth it and wonder why you waited so long to do it :o)

We worked with an experienced local kitchen designer who was great about listening to our needs and crafting a few designs for us to look at. She actually had some modeling and design software on her laptop which allowed her to created some virtual kitchen designs for us. Not only was that super cool, but it made our decision making a whole heck-of-a-lot easier!

We ended up paying just under $34,000 to do the following:
  • Replaced a worn laminate countertop with a beautiful red granite countertop

  • Replaced 50's vintage cabinets with new glass-front cherry cabinets with brushed nickel hardware and pulls and

  • Replaced our old single bowl sink with a double bowl undermount stainless steel sink

  • Added a Kokler stainless steel faucet

  • Added a molded copper backsplash topped with a matching glass tile pattern

  • Replaced linoleum floor with hardwood

  • Replaced our old appliances (range, cooktop, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher) with stainless appliances: except the dishwasher and the refrigerator which we had paneled to match the cabinets

Good luck with your kitchen remodel, you'll hate the process but love the results! FYI, we found this kitchen remodeling calculator to be pretty helpful and accurate.

comment Wow SoopahMom, that was truly Soopah! Thanks for the detail and pricing. I'll let you know if I make it to the other side :P - mieyun 6 years, 6 months ago
comment Hi mieyun, I can also confidently say that you will think your kitchen remodel was well worth it once it is done. I did my own two years ago and it is now the beautiful heart of my house. - meggers 6 years, 6 months ago
