To break down some of the cost, here is a list of the most common upgrades done in a remodel.
Countertops are the focal point of your kitchen. If done correctly, they bring elegance and charm to a kitchen where those qualities were lacked before. Countertops are also where the bulk of your expense is going to come from.
Consumers have many countertop choices today, with popular choices being laminate, and granite. Laminate is budget friendly, but it lacks the sharp look and appeal a kitchen gets from granite.
Laminate can mock the look of granite, but it lacks the shine, and the feel. Edesia offers custom countertops, so you can relax knowing you are being offered the best choices.
You can expect to spend anywhere from $100 to $250 per square foot on granite countertops.
Your cabinets are another focal point. Quality cabinets go a long way, so even though it may be tempting to buy them from a local store, you want to consider custom cabinets, which Edesia provides.
The difference between store bought cabinets and custom made cabinets is in the quality of the material, and the overall look of the finished project, and the difference in storage capability. Custom cabinets bring a whole new atmosphere to your kitchen that assembly line cabinets do not.
The edgings, trim, knobs, and specific details that go into custom cabinets are sure to leave your visitors amazed at how classy your kitchen is.
The cost of custom cabinets range from $500 to $1500 per linear foot. If your kitchen is large, your cabinets could be one of the most expensive parts of your remodel.
Technology is in. Stainless steel appliances are in. Put them together, and you have every homeowners ideal appliance bundle (but your finishes are not limited; matte black finish is a new trend, as well as fingerprint resistant).
