How Much Money Should I Spend on a New Kitchen?

We talked about how renovating your kitchen can increase the value of your home in a previous blog, so it's no wonder that this room is one of the most popular rooms to renovate. Not only does it yield a high return on investment but you also spend much of your time at home here too so you want it to be perfect.

While it's an easy decision to make when choosing what to renovate, how much to spend on it is a different ball game. This blog aims to help answer the question "how much should I spend on a new kitchen?"

The average cost for a kitchen renovation

On average, a kitchen remodel costs £18,500 or approximately £120 per square foot.

Of course, this doesn't mean that everyone needs to pay this amount every time they want to update their kitchen. The price depends on many factors - including the size of the kitchen, the quality of the materials and the complexity of the job.

Taking these factors into account, most homeowners spend between £10,000 - £30,000 (or £60-£200 per square foot) on average to renovate their kitchen.
