From new cabinets, countertops and flooring to a pretty backsplash, appliances, lighting and other small items, a kitchen remodel can be as small or big as your imagination and budget allow. Other than location, size is a significant determining factor of a Boston home remodel because it influences the scope of the project the most at a high level; size will dictate the length of time the entire home remodel will take, the sheer amount of materials you’ll need to work with and the amount of labor required to complete the project.
The best way to be prepared for a home remodel is to have a clear vision for what you want and do not want and a general understanding about the project itself so that you’ll waste as little time as possible when you meet with your architect or builder.
William Fadul, Co-Owner, MOSAIC Group, tells us that his estimate of $50,000 to $75,000 applies to a 12’x16′ kitchen and involves pretty much everything that homeowners want in a mid-range remodel: new semi-custom cabinets; all-new appliances (budgeted around $6,000); granite or solid-surface counters; lay new floors or tie-in existing floors; even minor structural work; and much more.

Even though I was happy with our all white kitchen, I was ready for a change and so one evening while cleaning out a cabinet, I came across my can of Annie Sloan chalk paint in French Linen and wondered how it would look on my lower kitchen cabinets.
