Cabinets will no doubt be one of the main parts of your budget for a high end kitchen – as you’ll most likely want custom-made units. The quantity, style and materials used for your cabinets will all affect the price you pay. On average, you can expect high end kitchen cabinets to cost around £100 – £200+ per unit.

If you plan on making the most of space you can incorporate clever design with bespoke kitchen cabinets – though they’ll come at a higher cost.

Factors affecting the high end kitchen remodel cost

With high end kitchen projects, there are numerous factors that will affect the total cost. Some of the most important to consider are:

  • Size of your kitchen
  • Amount of cabinetry needed
  • Quality of materials used
  • Number and type of integrated appliances
  • Integrated lighting
  • Any custom-made cabinets and worktops
  • Luxury fixtures and fittings
  • Cost of professional kitchen design
  • Any prep work needed
  • Any change of layout or expansion of kitchen space
  • Where you live.
