Kitchen Remodeling Cost in Scottsdale

We’ll outline some of the major considerations using this farmhouse style kitchen we remodeled in Scottsdale. The kitchen was one room of a whole-house remodel.

It included wall removal, exposed beams, and finishing adjacent rooms. These options that made the scope of work larger than a basic remodel of the space.

It’s also very typical of how people want to improve their kitchen. Many people are interested in a more open concept and a more comprehensive overhaul of their home or kitchen.

The investment required for your kitchen remodel depends on what your vision entails, how you want the kitchen to function, and the conditions of your home or space.

Kitchen Remodel Scope of Work

The biggest factor that drives the cost of kitchen remodeling is the scope of work. Some projects include only minor changes and upgrades, while others are more complex. The size of the kitchen is also an important factor.

If you like the layout and size of your kitchen, consider replacing the cabinets, appliances, and finishes in the same locations to reduce the overall budget. If this is the case, the project may not require a building permit, which will save money and time.

If your dream kitchen involves major changes in layout, function, or quality of finishes, your investment will increase. It’s often necessary to make some changes to better suit your lifestyle, family needs, or satisfaction with your kitchen. 

Moving of plumbing, electrical, and lighting will require a building permit in AZ, as will any structural changes. All necessary building permits and inspections were included in this project.

This kitchen was done with a high level of workmanship, customer service, and professional project management.
