Nearby existing plumbing or electrical lines significantly reduce installation costs. Costs may vary based on the size of the kitchenette, the quality of the materials and appliances you choose, and whether electrical or plumbing connections are already in place nearby.

However, if you want a high-end kitchenette with extra features and luxury appliances, expect to pay substantially more.

According to the New York City building code , the space used must be 80 square feet or less to be classified as a kitchenette.

While there's no minimum size for a kitchenette, they're rarely under 50 square feet because there must be enough room to prepare food and store cookware. Based on these minimum and maximum sizes, here's what you can expect to pay to install a kitchenette.

Take a look at some of the key elements that make up the total project price to add a kitchenette. If new wiring runs a significant distance, not only will the cost of installation go up, you may also need to replace affected drywall.

The cost to install kitchen cabinetry ranges from $100 to $1,500 per linear foot, depending on the type and style of cabinet you choose. High-end hardwoods, rare reclaimed woods, and custom, handcrafted units sit at the top end of this range. The table below shows you how much you can expect to pay per square foot, including installation for some of the most popular countertop materials. Material Cost Range Average Cost Granite $25 – $170 $97 Soapstone $30 – $100 $65 Marble $25 – $220 $122 Quartzite $50 – $200 $100 Slate $30 – $90 $60 Limestone $20 – $100 $60 Travertine $21 – $65 $43 Engineered Stone Quartz $25 – $100 $62 Corian $30 – $105 $67 Acrylic $23 – $60 $41 Laminate $40 – $80 $60 Ceramic $11 – $58 $35 Concrete $60 – $130 $95 Wood $28 – $68 $48 Butcher Block $25 – $65 $45 Stainless Steel $70 – $130 $100 Copper $100 – $175 $137

For tile backsplashes, you'll pay $25 to $36 per square foot, including materials and installation. Standard ceramic tile backsplashes cost the least, at an average of $25 per square foot.

Stainless steel tile backsplashes are the most expensive, at an average price of $36 per square foot. Because installing a kitchenette involves significant plumbing and electrical work, plus a fair amount of construction work for the cabinetry and countertops, it's worth considering outsourcing the project to a general contractor or a construction manager.

Once you've agreed on the price and the specifications, the local general contractor you hire will oversee the entire project, bringing in the right pros at the right time. In that case, you can oversee the project yourself, saving yourself 5% to 15% by not hiring a construction manager or general contractor.

You can also cut costs by tackling the finishing work yourself, such as laying flooring, adding a tile backsplash, and even installing cabinets or countertops. DIY countertop installs work best with laminate, butcher block, or metal surfaces.
