National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) estimates design fee comprises average four percent of the budget, however it may grow. For example, a kitchen designer in Los Angeles may cost up to 15 percent of that budget. NKBA also found that only 22 percent of homeowners renovating a kitchen or bathroom actually hired a designer. Most of homeowners choose to work with the experienced general contractor. The main reason for that is to bring the budget down.

Design plays a big role in the end budget. If you want a change in the kitchen layout which involves removing and relocating load-bearing walls, water or gas lines take the additional paperwork, inspection, and fee into account.

Appliances
