How Much Does a Kitchen Remodel Cost in Dallas, Texas?

The cost of your bespoke kitchen remodel varies widely depending on the scope and scale of the project, the materials and features you select, and the skill and labor expertise required to execute your plan. 

Mid-Range Kitchen Remodel Costs

For a mid-range kitchen remodel, expect to invest less than $145,000 or more than $300,000 for the entire project. These remodels often include a comprehensive redesign of the layout to improve functionality and flow, high-quality cabinetry with features like soft-close and full-extension drawers, premium appliance packages, and durable yet stylish countertops and flooring. You may notice that your appliance package is included in this estimate, which is often omitted from other firm’s line items. Our holistic approach ensures a bespoke fit for every appliance and a budget free from surprises. 

Cost of High-End Remodels

For those looking toward a high-end kitchen remodel, the budget escalates to between $225,000 and $500,000 or more for the project. High-end remodels typically involve larger spaces with more extensive layout changes, including moving or adding walls, windows, and possibly utilities. The material selections start at a higher benchmark, with luxury appliances, exotic stone countertops with intricate detailing, and custom architectural elements that create a truly bespoke kitchen.Modern green kitchen remodel in Dallas, Texas with brass cabinet fixtures and green vertical subway tile backsplash

Key Factors Affecting Kitchen Remodel Costs

When embarking on a kitchen remodel in Dallas, understanding the project's cost variables is essential for effective planning and budgeting.

Scope and Layout Redesigns

The scope of your remodel plays the most significant role in determining cost. A kitchen is rarely just a kitchen—it's a central hub that might integrate dining areas, laundry rooms, or even a cozy nook for family gatherings. Our approach often involves completely redesigning the kitchen layout, moving beyond simple replacements to reimagining the space entirely. This might include relocating load-bearing walls, updating electrical and plumbing systems, or adding new windows to bring in natural light. These changes enhance the kitchen's functionality and aesthetic appeal but require a comprehensive planning and execution process, contributing to the overall cost.

Quality of Materials

Your materials significantly impact the final cost of a kitchen remodel. At Sardone | McLain, we pride ourselves on using high-quality materials that ensure durability, beauty, and functionality, and we’re well-versed in achieving this with your budget in mind. From soft-close, full-extension cabinets to high-end appliances and luxurious countertops, each element is chosen to complement the overall design while meeting our client's specific needs and preferences. High-end kitchen remodel with mosaic backsplash behind oven and range hood and luxury countertop material

Special Features and Expansions

Expanding a kitchen's footprint, whether by extending into adjacent spaces or adding square footage, introduces additional costs. For mid-range expansions, if the project involves repurposing space within the existing structure, such as converting a dining room, costs can be quite reasonable. However, if the expansion adds to the home's footprint, you'll likely pay more, considering the additional structural, roofing, and finishing work required. High-end expansions increase the kitchen's size and incorporate luxury features such as specialty appliances, architectural details, and premium materials. These projects often transform the kitchen into a statement piece of the home, reflecting our clients' unique styles and desires for a functional and visually stunning space.

Pricing Breakdown

Understanding the detailed costs involved in a kitchen remodel helps set a realistic budget and ensure your project aligns with financial expectations. Here's a closer look at where your budget might be allocated.

  • Cabinetry and Hardware: This often represents a significant portion of the budget, especially for custom or semi-custom options that include organizational features and high-quality materials.
  • Appliances: The cost varies widely based on the chosen appliances' brand, technology, and features. High-end remodels might include professional-grade ranges, built-in refrigerators, and additional conveniences like wine fridges or warming drawers.
  • Countertops: Material choice (granite, marble, quartz, etc.) significantly affects cost, with luxury options like exotic stones or custom fabrications adding to the budget.
  • Flooring: Depending on the material (hardwood, tile, luxury vinyl, etc.), flooring can be a substantial part of the remodel cost, especially in larger kitchens.
  • Labor: Including demolition, construction, installation, and finishing work, labor costs can vary based on the project's complexity and duration.

Maximizing Your Investment

To ensure your kitchen remodel adds value to your home, focus on timeless design elements and durable materials that appeal to future buyers. Energy-efficient appliances and features can also increase your home's marketability, appealing to eco-conscious buyers and potentially reducing utility costs.

ROI and Value Addition

A well-executed kitchen remodel can offer a substantial return on investment (ROI), with many projects recouping a significant portion of the cost at resale. The added value comes from the aesthetic and functional improvements and the overall appeal of a modern, updated kitchen to prospective buyers. While the exact ROI will vary based on the project's scope and the local real estate market, investing in your kitchen is often considered one of the most impactful home improvement projects.Two hanging light fixtures above kitchen island with three stools tucked in in Dallas kitchen remodel by Sardone | McLain
