We don't do entire kitchens, or a house full of cabinetry.
But we do parts of some kitchens, and parts of some houses, so we get sorta close to what you are looking for. But we work with the top 2-3% of all housing, so.....
House at $5M may have a $120-150K kitchen, complete with stone, appliances, installed, etc. Bathrooms (5-7), basement bar, two laundry rooms, mud room, craft room, pantry, and now even garage cabinets will exceed over $250K, for 5%. Note that most secondary cabinets are stock units.
A house at $2.5M will still have a $100-120K kitchen, but no garage cabs and maybe not the basement bar (those all go in later, months after move-in). Dramatically downscaled laundry cabs, secondary bath cabs, etc.
Kitchen and master baths seem to have no upper limit. I just saw a single shower with $18K worth of German Chromed exposed plumbing fittings for a shower head and hand shower, with shut offs, etc.
On the 3.2 I had data on, I don't know what the stone ran throughout or the install of the cabinets ran. But the whole house around 65k of our cabinets throughout (we very rarely get cherry picked for just the kitchen). Off the top of my head I'd say $14k of that was in the kitchen. I think the appliances ran 35k if I remember seeing the invoice right months ago.
I'm getting more call for the 1+ million dollar home and trying to collect data on the jump up in cabinet prices from the 1 million and below market.
Family Man - I forgot to mention that most homebuilders use conventional estimating programs that can generate 'budgets' for everything from footers to carpeting. You might approach a better customer/builder and see if they can share some of the basics for cabinetry. It is to your mutual advantage to be able to supply within budget - they like it, and it should be an easier sell for you.
We run into the "Our budget will not cover this so we will have to think about it...." I spent years wondering where and who came up with the budgets for a 'custom' house. Back then, it was shoot from the hip, lowball stuff at every step, with pissed off homeowners by the time they got to realizing the the $2.12 a yd carpet just was not going to hack it.
Today, it is a bit more sophisticated, with a printed spread sheet with hundreds of line items with a budget price. But they do like to keep that info private.
It's important to not mix new construction with remodel in this conversation. It will almost always be more expensive to build a new home than the current market value of a similar size and quality used home. Therefore percentages of value of cabinets vs home value are pretty meaningless when you include both new and remodel projects.
Remodeling Magazine has published its 2016 Cost vs Value report, which contains the costs of 3 different replacement kitchens broken out in over 100 local markets. They began this annual report about 2002. It includes the costs to renovate kitchens then also shows the percentage of the project cost that is added to the home.
This year's Upscale Major Kitchen Remodel project has a national average cost of $119,909 and is described as follows:
Update outmoded 200-square-foot kitchen with 30 linear feet of top-of-the-line custom cherry cabinets with built-in sliding shelves and other interior accessories. Include stone countertops with imported ceramic- or glass -tile backsplash; built-in refrigerator, cooktop, and 36-inch commercial grade range and vent hood; built-in warming drawer, trash compactor, and built-in combination microwave and convection oven. Install high-end undermount sink with designer faucets and built-in water filtration system. Add new general and task lighting including low-voltage undercabinet lights. Install cork flooring, cherry trim.

FORUM GUIDELINES: Please review the guidelines below before posting at WOODWEB's Interactive Message Boards(return to top)
WOODWEB is a professional industrial woodworking site. Hobbyist and homeowner woodworking questions are inappropriate.
Messages should be kept reasonably short and on topic, relating to the focus of the forum. Responses should relate to the original question.

Messages requesting private responses will be removed - Forums are designed to provide information and assistance for all of our visitors. Private response requests are appropriate at WOODWEB's Exchanges and Job Opportunities and Services.
Messages that accuse businesses or individuals of alleged negative actions or behavior are inappropriate since WOODWEB is unable to verify or substantiate the claims.
Posts with the intent of soliciting answers to surveys are not appropriate. Contact WOODWEB for more information on initiating a survey.
Excessive forum participation by an individual upsets the balance of a healthy forum atmosphere. Individuals who excessively post responses containing marginal content will be considered repeat forum abusers.
Responses that initiate or support inappropriate and off-topic discussion of general politics detract from the professional woodworking focus of WOODWEB, and will be removed.
Participants are encouraged to use their real name when posting. Intentionally using another persons name is prohibited, and posts of this nature will be removed at WOODWEB's discretion.

WOODWEB's forums are a highly regarded resource for professional woodworkers. Messages and responses that are crafted in a professional and civil manner strengthen this resource. Messages that do not reflect a professional tone reduce the value of our forums.
Messages are inappropriate when their content: is deemed libelous in nature or is based on rumor, fails to meet basic standards of decorum, contains blatant advertising or inappropriate emphasis on self promotion (return to top).
Libel: Posts which defame an individual or organization, or employ a tone which can be viewed as malicious in nature. Words, pictures, or cartoons which expose a person or organization to public hatred, shame, disgrace, or ridicule, or induce an ill opinion of a person or organization, are libelous.
Improper Decorum: Posts which are profane, inciting, disrespectful or uncivil in tone, or maliciously worded. This also includes the venting of unsubstantiated opinions. Such messages do little to illuminate a given topic, and often have the opposite effect. Constructive criticism is acceptable (return to top).
Advertising: The purpose of WOODWEB Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions. WOODWEB suggests that businesses include an appropriately crafted signature in order to identify their company. A well meaning post that seems to be on-topic but contains a product reference may do your business more harm than good in the Forum environment. Forum users may perceive your references to specific products as unsolicited advertising (spam) and consciously avoid your web site or services. A well-crafted signature is an appropriate way to advertise your services that will not offend potential customers. Signatures should be limited to 4-6 lines, and may contain information that identifies the type of business you're in, your URL and email address (return to top).
Repeated Forum Abuse:
Forum participants who repeatedly fail to follow WOODWEB's Forum Guidelines may encounter difficulty when attempting to post messages.
There are often situations when the original message asks for opinions: "What is the best widget for my type of shop?". To a certain extent, the person posting the message is responsible for including specific questions within the message. An open ended question (like the one above) invites responses that may read as sales pitches. WOODWEB suggests that companies responding to such a question provide detailed and substantive replies rather than responses that read as a one-sided product promotion. It has been WOODWEB's experience that substantive responses are held in higher regard by our readers (return to top).
The staff of WOODWEB assume no responsibility for the accuracy, content, or outcome of any posting transmitted at WOODWEB's Message Boards. Participants should undertake the use of machinery, materials and methods discussed at WOODWEB's Message Boards after considerate evaluation, and at their own risk.
