Memphis Metro: The Most Expensive Part Of A Kitchen Remodel

Hi, and welcome to the Robbins Construction blog.
We’ve been working on homes in the Greater Memphis area as a premium residential construction company for close to twenty years. Of course, if you combined all of the expertise and experience that makes our company so successful…we’d have to add a lot more decades.
Anyhow, the point here is that we all truly understand the role of your kitchen in your life and the life of your family: the aesthetic component, the functionality, and the real-world value. It’s where you keep and prepare the food that sustains everyone!
But when we first meet folks getting ready to invest in a kitchen remodel, they have three core questions:

  1. How much will it cost?
  2. Who’s actually doing the work?
  3. And how long will the project take?

In today’s article, let’s just jot through the basics of the first, and yes, most common, question: What will be the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel here in Memphis Metro?
Well, it depends!

Every Kitchen Remodel Is The Same – But Different

A kitchen is a kitchen, and most kitchens today are made up of the same sections: cabinetry, appliances, flooring, lighting, etc. That much stays the same. However, when you get down to the nitty-gritty of every Kitchen Remodeling Project, they’re always unique. They present different challenges, tastes & styles, and costs.

(Generally) The Two Most Expensive Parts Of A Kitchen Remodel

  1. New Cabinets
  2. New Appliances

Like most other products, you’ve got a wide assortment from cheap and utilitarian to high-end and luxurious, conservative and straightforward designs, sleek or gaudy.
That being said, when you work with professional designers, they help you put all the pieces together while keeping costs within a specific range.
But let’s look at a couple of examples where neither your cabinets nor your appliances would end up being the most expensive part of a kitchen remodel.

Example #1: What if your cabinetry doesn’t need to be replaced? What if it’s in great shape and just needs to be touched up?

Example #2: What if your appliances are pretty well up to date, but the electrical system supporting them is outdated and failing?

Example #3: What if you would rather spend most of your budget on new lighting, flooring, and gorgeous custom marble or granite countertops?

To get to the actual end-of-the-day costs, you need to set a budget and then talk to your local Memphis Metro-area experts. We at Robbins Construction believe personal referrals are best (most of our customers are referred by family and friends), but do your homework and talk to reputable companies… fast!
