Budget Kitchen Remodel

$7300

Here in Germany, everything is expensive partly because the Euro is stronger and partly because all types of "Handy Man, Jack of all trades" type of work is contracted out to license professionals and then because home improvement stores like Lowes or Home Depot are crazy expensive. My husband and I have had to learn quickly how to improve our home on our own. The original kitchen was fairly new and functional but it was dark, old fashion looking and limiting. After a lot of research, I opted to design the kitchen myself using IKEA's handy kitchen planner. For about $7300 we were able to install a kitchen that had a large island, lots of counter space, an induction cook top, 2 full size ovens, dishwasher and a beverage refrigerator along with a full size refrigerator plus the large buffet in our dining room, new lighting, small appliances, window treatments and decor. One of my favorite rooms is the kitchen.
