The average kitchen reno costs about $25,000, with a high end closer to $40,000. The cost depends on a lot of factors, from your geographic location (it’s a lot cheaper in the South, for example) to your taste and the size of your kitchen. Still, no matter how you slice it, renovating a kitchen is an expensive project.
So it’s not surprising that buying your kitchen from IKEA is a tempting option. There’s absolutely no doubt that IKEA kitchens are a lot cheaper on paper—on average about half the cost, and possibly even lower depending on the options you choose. IKEA sells everything you need for your kitchen in one place, from appliances to flooring, cabinets, countertops, and finishes, so it’s also a fairly convenient way to remodel.
