Before reading: If you are planning for any high end kitchen, the following may not be applicable for you. This is for someone whose total home interior budget is from 3L to 8L.
This article should help anyone who is starting with their kitchen planning with regards to the budget.
Though we strictly work on cabinet based pricing, I am going to use sqft pricing for quick calculation and convenience.
Let's break down the parts that affect the price -
Counter-top, Civil, Plumbing, Electrical, etc.
These are the boxes that will go into your kitchen. If a cabinet is made using the following configuration, the price of the cabinet will be around 1400 rs/sqft.
Plywood of Rs. 80/sqft
Matte finished laminated shutters
Ebco Normal-close hinges
Handles or Rs. 150/piece
You can calculate the entire width and height of the units and multiply it by 1400rs. For instance, if you have floor cabinets of length 13ft, and wall cabinets of length 10 ft (roughly matches a 7ft x 8ft kitchen) -
Price of the cabinets: 55.75 sqft x 1400 rs = 78,000 (approximately)
Hardware include -
Drawer Fittings (Tandem Boxes or SS Baskets)
Lift Up Systems
The following is a ballpark of the hardware price.
Drawer Fittings - Tandem box
The kitchen considered can have anywhere from 3 to 8 drawers. Let's assume 5 nos for now.
Assuming one corner unit
No pantry unit considered
One Roller shutter for this kitchen
One wicker basket
Note A lot of people very only very few hardware because of the budget constraint. It is completely at your discretion to finalize the list.
The price in the cabinet considered matte/glossy laminated shutters. There are different types of shutters available. You can go for either one of the finishes or a mix of one or more. Following gives you an idea of how much each of the finish will contribute to the price. The total sqft of the kitchen is 55.75 sqft (from the above section)
Increase in Price per sqft
The total increase in price for 55.75 sqft
Counter-Top, Backsplash, Sink, Plumbing & Electrical
If the builder has already laid the counter-top, then there should not be any additional cost. If not, there will be some misc cost which can vary from 10,000 to 25,000. Most of the price will be contributed by the counter-top, so you can get in touch with any granite shop to understand the price.
This should give a fair idea of the different components that contribute to the price of the modular kitchen.
