Thinking about embarking on a major kitchen remodel? Let's set some expectations based on data from the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies.

Of course these numbers change significantly based on local markets. For example, average project costs are about two higher in San Francisco than they are in New Orleans. We've posted more on that here.

Looking to save some money on that project? You can save quite a bit of money by doing it yourself. You lose out on the expertise of having a professional remodel your kitchen and will have to invest your time, but if you have the tools and the talent, the average costs look a lot different. So what are the averages for DIY and professional major kitchen remodels?
