How much does a Design-Build Kitchen Remodel Cost?

Calculating the cost of any remodel requires knowing first the design, scope and size of the project and this is especially true for a kitchen remodel.

  • Does your kitchen need to be updated?
  • Would a remove & replace facelift or swapping out all the “pretty stuff” like countertops, hardware and fixtures fit your needs?
  • Does your existing kitchen fit the needs of your family?
  • Do you need more space and function in your kitchen’s layout?
  • Do you want an open concept floorplan with removing or opening up walls?
  • Do you want to expand the footprint of your kitchen by building an addition or repurposing underused spaces?

To help you get started planning your next kitchen remodeling project, our Design Build Team at The Cleary Company has assembled the following project examples and ballpark budgets. We also recommend reviewing Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs Value report for additional information on building and remodeling costs in Columbus OH.
