Kitchen Budget Calculator

Step 1: Determine a reasonable budget based on the value of your home.

It is generally recommended to spend 5% - 15% of your home's current value on a kitchen project, with the national average being 8%. Spending less than 5% may lower the value of your home. If you spend more than 15%, you are unlikely to see a good return on your investment.

Step 2: Decide how those funds should be allocated.

The National Kitchen Bath Association conducted a recent survey in which they found that on average homeowners using professional services allocated their budget as follows:

  • Cabinetry 40%
  • Countertops 14.5%
  • Appliances 14%
  • Fixtures 5%
  • Lighting and Electrical 3.5%
  • Flooring 3%
  • Walls and Trim 1.5%
  • Labor 18.5%
