Teknika Kitchens and Baths is moving our custom cabinetry business to Chestertown Maryland in November of 2020. It is time to enjoy the lifestyle of the Eastern Shore. So, to introduce ourselves we thought we would let you know what it costs to enjoy the benefits of a custom kitchen remodel in Chestertown and throughout Kent and Queen Anne Counties. This information is from a national magazine that surveys home project costs every year by metropolitan area. The eastern shore of Maryland is part of the Baltimore metro area.
First let me explain the options that are explored and what they entail. For custom kitchen remodels there are two types we are interested in: midrange and upscale.
The midrange custom project involves keeping the kitchen design layout the same and swapping older cabinets and appliances with moderate replacements. This would be for a 200-foot square kitchen and include GE level appliances, including a range, vented range hood, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal and custom lighting. This kitchen renovation would also include new flooring. The cabinets would be semi-custom wood cabinets and the countertop would be laminate. The plumbing includes a double tub stainless steel sink and a single lever, standard faucet. The total cost including materials and labor would be $67,565. This is lower than the national average of $68,490, but still expensive.
The upscale remodel involves the same size kitchen and number of cabinets, but they would be custom products and white (painted cabinets are usually more expensive) with numerous interior storage options. The countertops would be stone and the backsplash tile would be glass or ceramic. The appliances would include a built-in refrigerator, commercial grade cooktop and vent hood, wall oven, and built in microwave. The plumbing includes a high end undermount sink with designer faucet and water filtration system. The lighting would include custom, general and task lighting with under cabinet lights included. The flooring would be wood or tile. The cost for this upscale remodel including custom materials and labor would be $134,277. Again, the national average is higher at $135,547.
Teknika Kitchen and Baths is very excited about our move to Chestertown and look forward to getting to know our neighbors throughout the eastern shore, one kitchen at a time.
