Click on the Home > Remodelling - Kitchen and Bath link under your question - there are a lot of recent answers to similar questions on pricing for kitchen remodels.

Cost will vary tremendously depending on the grade of cabinetry and appliances you go with, whether the walls you are taking out are load-bearing or not, etc. The nationwide average on kitchen remodels runs from around $20,000 for a low-level upgrade to around $40-50,000 for a normal remodel, to $80-100,000 for real high end. Sounds like you are certainly in the $50,000+ range.

Bear in mind taking up garage space for a mud room will probably negatively impact your resale value unless you have a very large garage. Also, make sure there are no local covenants or planning and zoning codes that mandate a certain minimum garage size or number of cars capacity that you would be violating.

For that reason, even though it will cost a bit more for new foundation, I would generally recommend that instead of going into garage space, that you go the other direction with the kitchen expansion and do a bump-out addition with the kitchen, if feasible.

If you do go with the mudroom in the garage space scheme, I would EMPHATICALLY recommend a clean structural and wall material break at the garage interface, at you are likely to get minor cracking in the wall at that interface due to the difference in foundations. This intentional expansion joint, which should help prevent random or diagonal cracking in your new wall coverings, can easily be covered over with trim so it is not visible.

Around $2,500-$10,000. It's all relative to the type of remodeling you want, depending on size also. Based on the this figure-Basic, mid-range and relatively high-end remodeling, the price bar can be altered astronomically itself.

For minimal cost, I'd suggest to repaint painting kitchen cabinets and even floors. Now a days, installing new cabinatory doesn't cost too much. Buy the pre-assembled or Ready to assemble (RTA) cabinets from any trusted retailer that will help to minimize the budget indeed.

I experienced, dealing over internet is quite scary process but a deal with turned up my mind.

I had 3 estimates in virginia. They were all around $17,000 - 19,500. We broke a wall between kitchen and dining area and added a peninsula with granite top bar, all new cabinets, granite countertops and glass backspash, new sink and electric work. A 24 inch pantry was added. My price was $17,530. This is without painting and flooring. Hope this helps.
