How much is the range to do a kitchen remodel?


Not exactly like these but similar. A wall in old home would have to get knocked out.

Make some local calls and get some quotes to find a price.
Some off the wall price from people that could be any place on the planets not going to do you any good.
Going to have to get an engineer to design how to remove that wall and still hold up the ceiling or floor above.
Also going to need permits.

Isn't just a general contractor needed? I haven't heard of having to get an engineer.

Call Sears and price out the ranges. Some are self cleaning.

You can start with a GC- get an idea from him the procedure in your area. He can hire all the designers, architect and engineers- or you can perhaps save some cost and hire those folks. Then release their work for GC's to bid or negotiate on.
But the first step is knowing what you want and that it can be done to all codes

Most GCs can do that---however, they will need plans and designs before a quote can be prepared---

I suggest you get someone in ,perhaps a GC, for a preliminary walk through.

They should be able to give you an idea if the wall will be easy to remove or cost more than a new car---

They will also be able to give you a ball park figure on the work.

However, an architect or engineers plans will be needed for a firm price and a permit.

If you leave the plans to the GC, he will own them and you will not be able to use them without his payment and permission.

So I suggest you might want your own drawings---a designer could do this also--

Then you will be ready to get prices from a contractor.

If you only have to address the kitchen remodel, you might approach a kitchen and bath company in your area. They should have access to appliances and designers or architects on staff. Here we have many in the Merchandise Mart that offer turnkey services.

Of course, the prices range from basic remodel with stock cabinets and lower end appliances to $$$$$ for custom built cabinetry, proprietary cast and polished door and drawer hardware and all that jazz. A designer showroom environment is a great place to get ideas. The Merchandise Mart is now open to the public although you probably need a designer/architect to negotiate sales still I think.

You have a couple nice design centers in Southern California and of course in the Bay Area as well. Architects and interior designers have usually saved money on client projects and clients have enjoyed the experience of working with them. They like having access to other than box store appliances, plumbing fixtures and the like as well.

Cost can vary A LOT. Our remodel consisted of removing and replacing cabinets, granite counters, stone floor, retaining existing appliances we bought previous. No plumbing moving, no electrical. We did all the work ourselves except the granite installation. Cost us about about $4500 for cabinets, $2500 for granite, few hundred for floor (small area). Previously purchased appliances $3500 So about $11k total. Removing walls quickly adds cost especially if it is load bearing, so does moving plumbing, so does electrical. Without seeing the before pictures to the ones you posted, I would SWAG those pictures in the $30k range (in part because of the expensive materials in the pics) if no structure work was done. Like I said I know what we paid and we were minimal and very handy DIY.

We knocked out a wall that was a load bearing wall and maybe 15' long. The contractor then put a support beam in. We didn't use an engineer. Are you able to look at your roof line and tell if your wall is load bearing?

the 2 photos are beautiful kitchens. I like the lighter cabinets better.

10,000-20,000 depending on how smooth things go.

I just realized you said OLD HOME. All bets are now off.

Load bearing might not cost more than a partition---IF the partition is loaded with air ducts and drains----it's not the wall that costs to remove---it's everything inside the wall.

Costs can vary more than just location. It also depends on brands, moving plumbing, moving electric, etc. You could be like me and strip it to the studs, rebuild from scratch and DIY construct everything from cabinets to countertops, and only spend $1300. Or you can be one of those people that have a contractor do it all and only want the best of the best of the best, and shell out fifty grand. Depends on how picky you are, what your envisioned final design looks like in comparison to your current design, and how many different folks itll take to make that final vision come true.
