I’m thinking about remodeling my kitchen, which is pretty small–approximately 8′ x 10′. I don’t want anything fancy–just a pull and replace job, but I got an estimate from one of the big remodeling companies that seemed wildly too high. My sense is that the company is mainly equipped to do larger-scale jobs, and was just not willing to negotiate with me or figure out some common sense ways to keep the cost down. (I know kitchens aren’t cheap, but $30,000 for a job that didn’t require any construction or relocating of appliances in a space that small just didn’t seem reasonable, or anywhere within my budget.) I was wondering if anyone out there has had a positive experience with a small remodeling job on a kitchen or bathroom and has a person or company they could recommend.
For those who’ve had their kitchens redone – how much did it cost you?
