Last week, we shared all the before and afters of the Pittsburgh kitchen we did with Frigidaire Professional right here. We also shared a fun, behind-the-scenes video (okay, I cried) of the 6-day renovation process right here. Since we shared those, we’ve gotten a lot of inquiries about how much did it all cost?! So, today, let’s talk about that.
Frigidaire Professional was the headline sponsor for this renovation, but we had a few of our other favorite brands, like Rejuvenation, Wayfair and Semihandmade, pitch in some product too. And then there were a lot of materials, tools and decor that we purchased for the kitchen ourselves. But for the sake of an accurate budget breakdown, for those that want to recreate the look, I’m putting the true costs of everything in this post.
Some would call this a save and splurge kitchen, but even the splurges were budget conscious. We were very intentional in stretching every dollar as far as we could, while still keeping things looking high end. Here’s how it breaks down:
12″ x 24″ Luxury Vinyl Tile in Belmont $5.39/sq ft x 85 = $459
2″ x 4″ Porcelain Subway Tile in White $3.38/sq ft x 97 = $328
Unsanded Grout in Silverado $65
Frigidaire Professional Dishwasher $699
Ikea Sektion cabinet boxes and interior fittings and drawers $1517
Semihandmade Super Matte Gray drawer fronts, doors, filler pieces, side panels and toe kicks $2764
Bridge Faucet in Vintage Brass $217
DOMSJÖ single bowl apron front sink $185
Espresso bamboo blinds $35/ea x 2 = $70
Vintage rug $280
Frigidaire Professional Counter-Depth Refrigerator $2298
Cabinet Knobs $9 x 20 = $180
Crown Molding $65
Paint for back door (Dutch Boy Anchoring Neutral) $12
Frigidaire Professional Gas Range $1779
Solid white oak countertops (they’re now sealed, updated photo coming!) $1396
Brackets $8 x 8 = $64
Solid Poplar Shelving $11 x 4 = $44
Over the range vent $269
DIY vent cover $74
Sconces $275 x 3 = $825
TOTAL = $13864
Not bad, right?! I will note that total doesn’t include the expenses we ran into while the walls were down, like the electrician we had to call in to update the knob and tube wiring or the drywall we hung after all that was up to par.
Besides the electrical, we were able to save money on doing all the other work ourselves and the smaller 9×9 footprint helped, too. Less than $14K for all new appliances, cabinets, flooring, backsplash, lighting, hardware, countertops, sink, faucet–basically everything you’d need to actually make your kitchen look like this–is a number we’re feeling pretty good about. I’ve linked all the other dishware and decor we used in the sources below.
