Traditional vs Online
A recent study by the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) of consumers who had remodeled or who are currently remodeling their kitchens revealed that 54% had used a designer. While a simple “refresh” or cosmetic makeover like cabinet refinishing, decorative hardware changes, updating appliances, counter tops or floors can easily be managed on your own, it is worth considering a professional designer for new builds or major renovations.
While kitchen designs vary in price, the end amount will depend on a low, mid-range or high-end kitchen. The bottom line when it come to kitchen design pricing is the extent of the design advice you seek and level of detail you want. The average cost of a Kitchen & Bath Design Specialist is $160 per hour, but can range between $65 to $250 per hour. This rate could apply to design time, meetings, phone calls, time your designer spends at your project site and more. Alternatively, some charge 10% to 20% of your total project cost. The national average total for kitchen design services ranges between $4,285 and $22,745 according to www.homeadvisor.com
