This is the most common question homeowners have when planning a kitchen remodel. What’s it going to cost me and is it worth it? While it’s impossible to say how much your specific remodel will cost without seeing it in person, we can give you some estimates to plan around. Read on to learn how much kitchen remodeling costs in Maryland and Pennsylvania (our service areas).
Average Kitchen Remodeling Cost for Maryland and Pennsylvania
According to a Cost vs. Value study from 2020, the average price for kitchen remodeling in the Maryland and Pennsylvania area is as follows:
- Minor kitchen remodel: $32,494
- Major kitchen remodel: $65,166
There are many different factors that impact your kitchen remodeling cost, such as:
- The size of your kitchen
- The materials used at each stage of kitchen remodeling
- How much you are remodeling (complete kitchen or just components of it)
- If you’re changing your kitchen layout
- The cost of materials and labor in your area
- …and more
A small kitchen with entry-level finishes may cost a fraction of a large kitchen with high-end finishes. However, a small kitchen with high-end materials could cost the same as a large kitchen with inexpensive materials. With such a wide range of factors, it’s important to get a kitchen remodeling quote before deciding what to do in your home.

What Is the Most Expensive Part of a Kitchen Remodel?
The size of your kitchen and the layout will impact where your biggest costs are. Typically, the cabinets are the most expensive component of a kitchen remodel, followed by appliances and countertops. If you have a small kitchen though, you may spend the same money on a high-end fridge that you do on a row of cabinets. O’Hanlon Kitchens can work around your budget to find the right balance for your kitchen.
Budget an Extra 10% for Contingencies
When planning your kitchen remodeling budget, make sure to add an extra 10% for contingencies. Something almost always comes up in a kitchen redo, no matter how straightforward it seems. Set aside some extra money for unexpected issues. If nothing comes up, great! If it does though, you’ll be prepared to cover it.
What Is the ROI for a Kitchen Remodel?
According to the Cost vs. Value survey, the national average ROI for kitchen remodeling ranges from 54% to 78%. However, that doesn’t take into account how much a remodeled kitchen impacts the sales process for a home. Homes with updated kitchens sell faster, and having a remodeled kitchen could help your home stand out against the competition. With the right finishes and strategic material selection, you could get your entire investment back and then some.
Here are some tips to maximize your return-on-investment with kitchen remodeling:
- Use neutral colors for kitchen remodeling. This will appeal to the widest range of buyers and create longevity for your kitchen design.
- Prioritize where you spend your money. Focus on the elements that need the most improvement, and remodel in stages if need be.
- Research the market around you. What do buyers expect in a remodeled kitchen? Which features are sought-after staples in your community?
- Avoid trendy kitchen designs. These limit your buying pool and will make your kitchen quickly feel outdated.
- Choose cohesive elements that tie in with the rest of the home. A good flow will lead to a positive buying experience.
- Put function first, design second. If your kitchen has an awkward layout or several elements in disrepair, fix that first. A kitchen that functions poorly may detract from your home value, rather than adding to it.
