Without Spending a Small Fortune
remodel your kitchen this year? If so, youâ€™re in good company. According
to a recent survey done by the National Association of Realtors, 22
percent of first-time homebuyers and 11 percent of repeat buyers are
planning kitchen projects this year.
The remodeling industry can thank the countryâ€™s
rapidly aging housing stock for the expected increase in business. Homes
that were built in the 1980s are now hitting the typical 25- to 30-year
life cycle in which improvements begin to be needed.
If youâ€™re among the thousands of Americans planning a
kitchen remodel this year, a good place to start is by formulating a
budget. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, the
average kitchen remodel costs about $27,000.
Hereâ€™s a look at the breakdown as compiled by
Remodeling Magazineâ€™s annual “Cost Versus Value Report.” A new sink will
run you between $100 to $200 for stainless steel and $200 to $2,000 for
cast iron. Faucets cost between $60 and $100 for a basic chrome,
two-handle faucet to $300 and more for faucets with increased
functionality features or high-end finishes, such as nickel or bronze.
You can expect countertops to account for between
$2,000 and $6,000 of your budget. Laminate and ceramic tile typically
costs $10 to $50 per square foot; solid-surfacing or engineered stone
between $100 and $200 per square foot; natural stones, such as marble or
granite $150 and up per square foot.
Depending on which appliances you plan to replace,
they can cost from $350 for a new state-of-the-art microwave to $3,500
for a new, top-of-the-line refrigerator. You also have to take into
account the costs of re-doing the electrical, moving pipes if necessary
and the cost of labor for the installation.
But by far, one of the biggest expenses youâ€™ll face
will be replacing the kitchen cabinets. They could easily account for
half your budget. When it comes to replacement cabinets, stock are the
most inexpensive way to go. They cost $50 to $200 per linear foot, and
are available right off the shelf at your local home improvement store.
Style options and features are limited, and because they only come in a
few select sizes, they rarely work in a remodeling situation. Out of
frustration, a lot of people immediately start looking into custom
cabinets, which can cost up to five times more; but there is a more
You can specify semi-custom cabinets, which are
manufactured to buyer specifications for size and interior fittings.
These days, one brand thatâ€™s getting a lot of attention from builders
and home remodelers is Canac.
“What sets this brand apart is the method of
construction,” says company spokesman, Mark Johansen. “Canacâ€™s
construction method provides full-access to the space inside because
these cabinets are constructed without face frames. The drawers are
inherently wider, offering considerably more storage space over framed
cabinets. Access to larger items, like pots and pans, is not hindered by
structural obstructions, meaning users donâ€™t have to reach around center
stiles or over face frames in a cumbersome manner to remove larger
Full-access cabinets have the added benefit of being
easier to clean. There are no corners or crevices, so dirt, dust and
crumbs that tend to collect on other styles of cabinets are all but
Canac offers more than 50 different cabinet styles and
more than 400 door style/color combinations as well as myriad
accessories to personalize your kitchen or other livable space in the
home. “Full-access cabinets are design neutral, meaning Canac can create
kitchens that include great detailing and decorative accessories typical
of a traditional kitchen or something quite minimal and contemporary in
appearance,” adds Johansen.
Almost all of Canacâ€™s cabinetry is sold direct to new
home builders and remodelers through an exclusive associate dealer
network and corporate showrooms across North America. For more
