Ideas & Inspiration from Durham Addition & Remodeling Contractors

Kitchen Remodeling in Durham

Part college town, part slow-paced metropolis, Durham offers its residents a variety of amenities with nearby shops, restaurants, and plenty of green space. The city's location between North Carolina's Piedmont Plateau and Coastal Plain give it a combination of rolling hills and wooded land, with a moderate climate that invites residents and visitors alike to spend plenty of time enjoying the great outdoors.

Durham residents interested in remodeling their kitchens can choose from a variety of reputable professionals to help get the job done. For the best results, homeowners should choose a company or individual that is licensed and insured.

Local Costs for Kitchen Remodels

The national cost of remodeling a kitchen averages $20,079, while the average cost in Durham is on par at about $19,080. Before creating a project budget, it’s helpful to have a rough idea of what types of renovations are feasible at different price points. The following table provides a list of what to expect at three different levels:

$10K-$15K Remodel



Upgrade the faucet and sink

Build a kitchen island and replace flooring

Replace flooring with hardwood

Install inexpensive countertop replacement (tile or laminate)

Replace countertops with high-end materials (wood, stone, or metal)

Add granite countertops

Refinish cabinets or install stock cabinets

Install custom kitchen cabinets

Build custom cabinetry

Install appliance upgrades

Install high-end appliances

Install premium, EnergyStar appliances

Install energy-efficient under-cabinet and ceiling lighting

Add recessed lighting

Add extra overhead lighting

Homeowners may also opt for a small kitchen remodel, which typically costs $5,000 to $15,000. This type of renovation generally includes upgrading to energy-efficient appliances and fixtures, replacing windows, and painting the walls for a fresh look.

Necessary Licensing and Qualifications

Homeowners should choose licensed, bonded, and insured professionals to work on their kitchen remodels. North Carolina requires its contractors to have a valid state license that must be renewed annually. Homeowners can verify if their chosen contractor’s license is valid at the official website of the North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors. Any remodeling project that costs $30,000 or more requires a general contractor’s license, but projects that involve electrical or plumbing work that’s estimated to cost $5,000 or more must also be performed by a licensed contractor.

It’s also important to choose contractors or contracting companies that carry general liability insurance. All contractors in North Carolina are required to have workers’ compensation policies, and, in addition, the city of Durham requires these professionals to purchase liability policies worth a minimum of $1,000,000.

Other Projects to Consider 

Durham homeowners can take advantage of the opportunity to continue making improvements in other areas of the home. For example, some additional projects to consider include replacing bathroom fixtures or cabinets, refinishing or replacing flooring throughout the home, adding additional lighting or ventilation in the home, or upgrading the windows throughout the house to keep heating and cooling costs down.
