Designer Kitchens can really kick off the best possible impression in your home and make you feel like you've got something great
Are you looking at redesigning your kitchen? If you are then you probably want something that really makes a statement, right? You don’t just want the same old thing you’ve always had. That means putting in a little bit of work to find just what you’re looking for. And of course, a bit to get one of those designer kitchens started.
What You Need in Designer Kitchens
Designer kitchens aren’t just more expensive versions of what you have. These types of kitchens should have some of the best of the best. They should have excellent quality countertops and cabinets. They should also have high-quality flooring, lighting and everything else you could think of. You expect something ‘designer’ to be the best available.
If you’re looking at designer kitchens for inspiration for your own you should get what you pay for, right? Unfortunately, these types of kitchens are going to cost more money and that means looking at your options. If you can afford to spend anything and everything, go for it. You can get top quality everything. If you can’t, however, look at where you can cut back.
The Cost of Designer Kitchens
The cost of designer kitchens can vary greatly because it depends on what you’re looking for. If you want something that’s high class all the way you could easily pay upwards of tens of thousands of dollars. If you want to get a few designer aspects you would still be looking at several thousands of dollars at least, and up to $10,000. It’s all going to depend on you.
Custom cabinets alone can cost over $500 per square foot. Marble or granite countertops can be over $100 per square foot. And you’re not even getting into the flooring or lightening with those numbers or the installation costs. If you want to hire someone to design things for you, it’s even another cost altogether. That’s why it’s important to get an idea of what you want before you get started.
Think about how much money you have to budget towards the plan and work from there. Think about the most important aspects first. Do you really want custom cabinets but aren’t as concerned about the countertop? Maybe you absolutely have to have granite countertops but aren’t as concerned about the cabinets themselves. It’s up to you what needs the money and where to cut a little extra.
