What Factors Will Affect New Kitchen Costs in Ireland?

There are many factors that can and will affect the price of a new kitchen, everything from size, scope, quality of materials, number of appliances and preferred worktop will have a bearing on the overall cost of the project. 

We asked Alan O’Connor of Aloco Kitchens what he felt in his experience was the biggest cost contributor, 

“in 20 years of kitchen design and installation, I can say with authority that the largest cost contributor is the size of the room, the most important part of a bespoke kitchen is the materials used and the larger the space, the higher the cost.”

Before commencing work on any renovation project, you must clearly communicate your desired budget to your chosen kitchen designer so that they can design a kitchen that meets both your requirements while not exceeding the budget.

What are the average kitchen costs?

As a leading authority on kitchen design and installation, we are often asked for the mean average costs of a kitchen. As we have discussed already many factors affect the price of a kitchen, but if you discount all of the variables and only consider the mean average cost of a bespoke kitchen based on national averages (cite: Aloco kitchens) , then it is possible to indicate cost without the granular information. To best display this we have placed it in a table below.

Small bespoke kitchen cost

Because a small kitchen can only house a few cabinets and appliances and requires less flooring, all of the major expenses are sufficiently

One of the largest expenses of a bespoke kitchen project is the design and fit of the bespoke kitchen cabinets. Bespoke kitchen cabinets are made to measure and have to be perfectly designed to house the chosen appliances and storage areas. A large part of the kitchen cabinet cost is the quality of the materials, but another large price point is the labour and skill it takes to design and fit them.

On average bespoke kitchen, cabinetry will range will range between €10,000 – €20,000

Design and fitting costs for bespoke kitchens 


If you opt for a bespoke kitchen, then invariably you will require a kitchen designer.  The kitchen designer will take into account what your requirements are, the size of the space, the appliances you desire and of course the budget you have available.

If you looking to have a kitchen designed, manufactured & Installed then the design will more than likely be free of charge. If you’re only looking to have a kitchen designed then you should expect to pay between €100 – €1500.

The next cost to consider is fitting, the average cost of a kitchen fitter team (2 people working in tandem) is €325 per day. Finally, there is an appliance to install and configure, a  bespoke kitchen will on average house €10,000 worth of appliances.
