Back in October, Lady Gaga plopped down a cool $23 Million for a 10,000+ square foot Malibu mansion. While the entire house is beautiful, amazing, and sprawling (complete with a “Bat Cave Bowling Alley”), our favorite room is the kitchen. Naturally, this got us thinking about price – how much did this kitchen cost to build and is there any way it can be replicated a designer kitchen on a budget?

To see if this was possible, we dug deep into our data and tapped into the knowledge of our in-house home improvement expert, Jason Kyser. First, based on our data, we know that the average price of a kitchen remodel in the US is $50,500. Jason estimates that including material and labor, Lady Gaga’s kitchen cost around $139,000 to build. Is it possible to build this beautiful kitchen within the $50k range? According to Jason, it can be done for $48,971.22.
