A few questions for you in order to help you determine costs.
1- What do you dislike about your kitchen, is it too dark, too small etc..
2- Will you be staying in your home for 10 years or more.
3-Do you cook often in your kitchen, if not maybe you are like me and only need a revamp,
My kitchen cupboards were very dark and I wanted a kitchen with sunny dispositions, after a while I could not take it anymore so I repainted it with melamine paint, and believe it or not it worked. Eventually I would like to add a white tile backsplash, but I am not there yet.
4-If you use your kitchen constantly, you may want to make it bigger, remove a wall, or add an additional door or window.

The wall in this kitchen was knocked down and we replaced the narrow door by a window in order to make room for this open French style free standing storage cabinet.
5-Would you prefer an island counter or a dining table (for how many people)

6-If you want to renovate instead of revamping you have to think about a plumber. I know plumbing is always scary but you have to make sure that your pipes are functional and in order, it’s like life, prevention is the best way to go. ”Sorry no plumber available for photo”
7-Lighting, if you add lighting, an electrician is recommended, you have to make sure you have enough juice in your electrical box to light up your work area and your life.

8-Appliances are a big investment, will you be changing them, fridge,range, cooktop, oven hood, microwave, dishwasher wine fridge. Stainless appliances are very tempting but white appliances are cheaper and can also be very attractive.
