I've been lurking on this forum for about a year. I want to thank everyone for the invaluble information I've received. My husband and I with help from my father-in-law and father, diyed the whole project. Five years ago we did a $200.00 update of the kitchen. Moving on to last spring, after the dishwasher finally broke and we were down to the last two flourescent light bulbs, we decided it was time to gut the kitchen and start over. We quickly narrowed down our choices to Ikea cupboards due to budget reasons. The total cost of our kitchen was around $16,000. A few things have changed since these pictures were taken. We now have new chairs and a "craft" cart has taken residence in the corner.

Here is a simplified budget outline.
Appliances (fridge, dishwasher, mini fridge) $3120.00
Lighting 715.00
Floor 1090.00
Exterior (door, exhaust fan etc.) 975.00
Construction (drywall, electrical parts etc) 1262.00
Finishing (french doors, tiles, hinges etc) 1155.00
Cabinets 6500.00
countertops 600.00
sink 120.00
faucet 60.00
soap dispenser 15.00
sink accessories 20.00
drawer accessories 50.00
door knobs 300.00
Grand Total of $15,982.00 The above amounts are in Canadian dollars.

I love your backsplash! Where did you get your tile? It looks great!
I love your kitchen. It is airy and light and makes one happy!
