The Mid- to Upper-Range Kitchen RemodelWhat if the existing kitchen layout doesn't work? Maybe you want more space because you really love to bake and want a place to roll and cut out all those holiday cookies. Or a a kitchen island is something you've always wanted so that friends and family can sit nearby as you display your culinary skills.A $40,000 to $75,000 kitchen remodel might include:1. A total rework of the space. Everything, including the kitchen sink, may need to be moved, which means new plumbing, electrical, air ducts and so on. 2. Professional-style appliances. From the 48-inch built-in stainless steel refrigerator to the 48-inch cooktop with grille and griddle to the 30-inch double convection ovens, this kitchen is all about creating wonderful meals.3. Custom island. And if you want an island, why not make it like some large piece of furniture with legs and beadboard? It's a perfect place for the kids to sit and do homework while the evening meal is being prepared.
