🔔SUBSCRIBE ➡ http://bit.ly/FREETOFAMILY We have now been moved into our our DEBT-FREE fixer upper for about 2 1/2 weeks. In this video I share how we were able to keep renovation costs for this IKEA kitchen low and do a kitchen renovation on a budget. Our house had other factors that impacted our kitchen renovation that were not included in this total, but overall we are happy that we were able to stick to a budget for a great kitchen! The house is not 100% complete but it has everything we need to be able to live comfortably. I still have plenty of projects and updates to share such as an IKEA kitchen tour, A BEFORE & AFTER, DIY backsplash video, and a bunch of other ideas...so stay tuned!!!

Wow that's beautiful. I was guessing $16-18k w/o appliances. $11k is amazing.
Jillian Clarke (3 months ago)
Hi there! Thanks for the amazing video and I know I’m late to the party, but doing the same as you and planning before we even close! Excel spreadsheet to prove it! Ha. We are doing an open floor plan with a smaller floor then you, even after taking the wall down and are combining the “dining table” into the island like you’ve done here for a kitchen (with dining) living room layout. I love your island and the additional 15” “hidden” cabinet storage on the back. To replicate this, how did you plan that part? You said you had a fabricator? What was your steps. Size the island with the cabinets and 16 inch overhang, bought the countertop and then had someone install the table ends to (your contractor) to the counter? Any details on who I should be asking? Supplies? Etc would be amazing. Trying to keep to a budget and do this ONCE the right way. Really love your island!! Thanks I’m advance for any little details you have!! Love your vids.
Jillian Clarke (3 months ago)
FREE TO FAMILY thank you!!!!! Appreciate the response!
FREE TO FAMILY (3 months ago)
We designed the kitchen and sourced contractors on our own:) The fabricator was for the countertops only. We found ours through a recommendation. He installed the legs for us. We bought them ourselves at home depot. :)

Other kitchen companies love to criticize IKEA cabinets. Currently, I've been quoted $13k for "real wood" cabinets. The kitchen is very small. Just feel like going with IKEA and taking my changes with the so called bad quality 🤷‍♀️

Wow i got discouraged bc i really thought kitchen renovations were lik 30k. I want one similar to yours too.

Thanks so much for the breakout of cost. I appreciate it because I feel it is the most important detail often left out of videos like this. Glad your kitchen came out so lovely! It’s beautiful!
Taylor (4 months ago)
Me, personally, I feel like whenever I mention prices, there are a lot of people who always say, "Omgz, that is so expensive! I expected those custom cherry mahogany cabinets and custom pantry and newly installed bathroom to be a dollar!, not $100k! omgz!" If it doesn't sound affordable to someone, then they're going to say it's expensive even if it's a custom made kitchen the size of their home.

How did you get your quartz counters so cheap?
Sarah Robertson (1 year ago)
Omg that’s so painful! I was quoted at least $100/ sqft.
FREE TO FAMILY (1 year ago)
I worked with a fabricator who only chareged me the wholesale price of the material at a wholesale granite/quartz supplier (MSI stone). It was only $13.99 a sq. ft. He only charged me labor ($28/sq. ft.) and I paid for the quartz under his name/business. Many fabricators hike up the price of the materials:(
Forever and Always (1 year ago)
Your kitchen looks fabulous! How did you get your labor cost so low? Traemand (IKEA installers) want to charge $3000 to install 11 cabinets and one over the refrigerator cabinet. Also, cabinets from IKEA are going to cost $3598, off white bodbin. That’s with 15% off. Where did you find granite so cheap? Please tell me your secrets for getting a lower price.
FREE TO FAMILY (1 year ago)
I took advantage of the 20% sale that IKEA does 2 times a year. Traemand prices fluctuate by location and they even told me that...ugh. The granite is from a wholesale granite yard (MSI stone) and I found a fabricator who only charged labor and gave me the wholesale price from MSI...most fabricators will upsell you. That stone was only $13.99 a sq. ft. and I talked him down to $28 sq. ft for install. Where are you located?

Did y'all do cabinets first or floors first?

FLOORSS!!!! I wanted to know that a fresh floor was under my cabinets because they aren't bolted to the ground (except the island) and if I ever wanted to make a change, I knew my flooring was ini tact:) Just a personal decision although many people don't do that....

was your floor vinyl, tile or wood? It really flows with the kitchen. I just love white kitchens, you can see a mess or spill right away and can clean it so nothing builds up. It to me is flexible you can decorate with color in those things that can cheaply be changed out for a fresh new look..i.e. canisters, dishes etc.

It is porcelain tile:) It is great!!! LOVE the white too! xoxo

I chose the grey and think we will love it! I have less cabinetry to purchase with no island(I have a farm table instead) and we are not changing the floor plan or original cabinet set up as it is presently. We are leaving spaces for open shelving since everything we own it seems is white or stainless and minimal also so I don't require but a few sets of cabinetry. God bless.

Awesome!!! you will do great!!! Love my IKEA cabinets!!! xoox
Marsha Balderrama (1 year ago)
That looks so beautiful. We did a renovation about 6 years ago and before I had white Cabinetry, and was tired of it. In an alley kitchen. We knocked out the back wall it took me $25,000 for new dark Oak Cabinetry $2,000 for granite countertops and another $20,000 to tear out the back wall and add a den. Now I want to paint them white lol🤔🤗

How much for the countertop? Costs for different countertop options?
FREE TO FAMILY (2 years ago)
I put it in the video:) It was $13.99 a square foot for materials and $26.00 a square foot for fabrication costs/labor. xoxo
Cdogvlog 55 (2 years ago)
It would have cost me 10k plus to put in a new kitchen probably so i just reconditoned and fixed up the old 1970's units and built a shelf for the microwave. It was 150 dollars for a new countertop, the new sink was free, under 200 dollars in material, some money on paint and polyurethane, 80 dollars for new door handles. I think i will eventually be replacing the kitchen but this will keep it going for another 5 - 10 years. Plus there is a fireplace in the way and an expensive hot water situation that I'd rather not deal with unless the 40 year old hot water cylinder gives up.
FREE TO FAMILY (2 years ago)
It sounds like a HUGE job! That is when things get expensive:) I would say only do it when you are financially and emotionally ready:) xoxxo
Cdogvlog 55 (2 years ago)
Well the thing is there is this annoying chimney right in the middle of my house and demolishing it would greatly expand the kitchen space. So am actually considering tearing it down along with the new shelving space we put in so then I can move the stove from where it is to where the chimney is now, and put a dishwasher where the stove is. So building that new shelving unit I think is going to be a good temporary measure until ready to take down the chimney which is a huge job. On the plus side will have plentiful chimney bricks I can use to make a pathway out the back. Unfortunately this humungous chimney adds a lot of charm to the outside of the house so I'm sort of torn to be honest.
FREE TO FAMILY (2 years ago)
That is awesome! What an innovative backsplash!!! Let me know when you start documenting your journey:) xoxo
Cdogvlog 55 (2 years ago)
My kitchen is really basic, there is no dishwasher. All the cabinets were painted wood and had to use paint remover, a sander and paint the doors to make it look decent. My dad also fixed up the broken drawers. He was not that happy he said "why are we fixing up this old junk" Am lucky that hte flooring was in such good condition. On the plus side though the previous owner put in a brand new stove - I think its the law that a kitchen has to come with a stove here. I have now got to replace the old 1970's carpet in three bedrooms and the passage, update the electrics - there are not enough outlets in the place and then put in roof insulation. Apart from that just a lot of painting and cosmetic stuff like silicone etc still needs to be done. I also forgot to mention we used cheap 2 dollar tiles as a backsplash. My dad reckons i need to get professional carpet people to put carpet in and thats not a DIY thing. The thing I'm tackling now is the fireplace - It would cost me 4000$ to put in a new wood burner, but i don't want to have a non functioning fireplace there. Want to take it out because its connected to the old hot water cylinder and do something cosmetic in its place - the box with the candles in it or something. I just wish now i'd replaced hte fireplace instead of putting in a heat pump.

FREE TO FAMILY (2 years ago)
OH LOL! I went with ALL drawers and the most expensive drawers! LOL!!! I definitely could have done it for way less...I just can't stand doors on the bottom cabinets....LOL! I am a bit of a diva! LOL! So glad you own your home free and clear!! YOU GO GIRLLLLL!!!!!! xoxo
Apple's bunches (2 years ago)
FREE TO FRUGAL yeah we have 6 in the island I think and we went with the cheapest doors.. There only 6 drawers in my whole kitchen cause the drawers are the most expensive part and I didn't see the point... I kept it to the bare bones basics... Im so cheap then again I didn't want to redo my kitchen in the 1st place a storm caused damage so had no choice.. :) filling 212 inches of space top and bottom with out the island I was like can we made cabinets lol everyone talked me into ikea so went into Ikea like I have a big space and want to spend the least as possible... ur kitchen is beautiful and I wish I had the budget to do that but then again even if I did I think ill have a brake down...I can part with money... I own my house free and clear and everyone keep telling me to update it it will bring the market price up im like yea nope..Im so cheap people can't stand it but I love it... demo is fun :) keep up ur wonderful content I think it very interesting.. love it
FREE TO FAMILY (2 years ago)
My kitchen is HUGE!!! we had a TON of cabinets and that is why it was more expensive. My island alone has 7 full size cabinets. Most kitchens only use a little more than that for their whole kitchen..lol! $2000 is not a lot at all! IKEA stands behind their cabinets but if you hire them for install they guarantee the install not just the product.

The space and light in your kitchen is just stunning, love it!   My husband was project manager for our house build, and it's amazing how prices for even nails and knobs varied in different stores.  We have oak worktops for our kitchen that are lovely and warm but high maintenance, so I'm really loving your quartz countertop, its fabulous.... enjoy!!!

that is a great idea!!! I wanted to do that but when we wanted to take out a wall, we had to take the cabinets down and they fell apart😵

FREE TO FRUGAL oh my word! I think we will probably just refinish, either paint or stain the doors then. :-)

Excellent job. All the hard work paid off from the beginning of the end. Having the knowledge was a definite factor in the completion at a low cost. Which is amazing! I am happy for you. Enjoy. Thank you for sharing a wonderful part of your life. Have a amazingly successful day. :)
