How much does a new kitchen cost?

The cost of replacing a kitchen has increased drastically in recent years. The main drivers behind this cost are increased labour costs within the construction sector and increased costs of goods, driven by rising energy costs and increased tariffs for importing materials. 


As a result of these increases, industry publication KBB Review’s 2024 Retail Survey found that the average kitchen renovation currently costs £27,500 when purchased through a kitchen retailer. Thankfully, there are several ways to save money on a kitchen project, including by working with Worktop Express! 


Renovating your kitchen is an exciting endeavor that can breathe new life into your home. However, one of the most crucial aspects of planning a kitchen renovation is understanding the associated costs.  


From worktops to cabinets, appliances to flooring, each element contributes to the overall budget. In this guide, we'll explore the various factors influencing the cost of renovating your kitchen and provide insights to help you budget effectively. 

Kitchen Worktops

Worktops are a focal point of any kitchen renovation, and their cost can vary depending on the material chosen. Whether you opt for affordable laminate, luxurious solid surface, or timeless solid wood, it's essential to consider factors such as durability, aesthetics, and maintenance requirements when selecting your worktop material.

The cost of cabinets depends on factors such as material, design complexity, and size.
