How Much Does Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Cost?

The cost for a new kitchen or bathroom remodel will be determined by the brands or materials you select, the size of the project, where you live in the country and the layout of the new design.

For kitchens, pricing can start at $30,000 if you are replacing cabinets and counter tops.  The price can easily go up if you are replacing appliances, the configuration of appliances and plumbing, electrical, flooring, cabinets, countertops, backsplashes etc.  Maintaining a good kitchen work triangle is important when designing the layout of the new kitchen remodel.  On average, a kitchen will cost from $30,000 – $100,000, including design, products and installation.  I have clients in San Antonio whose appliance budget alone was $30,000, so you can see how it all depends on your budget and taste.  The scope of work for your project is what dictates the construction budget.  We defiantly recommend doing some research before you contact a designer or builder because they will ask you all of these questions.  Visit local home improvement/appliance stores, local  home and garden shows, look online for inspiration or example of styles that you like, start a Pintrest Board/Houzz to show your builder what you like.

If you are considering  a kitchen remodel, you should start thinking about what type of cabinets/ countertops you like.  There are  so many options to consider:

Cabinet wood: oak, maple, poplar, etc.

Upper cabinet height: 30″, 36″, 42″, 48″, etc

Soft close hinges/drawers

Plywood boxes or particle/pressed board

Pull out trays, trashcans, spice racks, wine racks, glass doors, crown molding, etc.

Painted or stained doors/ door styles (shaker, flat panel, beveled edge, etc.

Coutnertops, formica, granite, solid surface, quartz, quartzite, etc.

Bathroom remodeling prices generally average between $15,000 and $50,000 when you’re replacing everything. Again, the cost can be lower or considerably higher depending on what you’re looking for.  If you are changing the configuration of the plumbing the price will increase pretty fast.  Again, it will depend of brand of fixtures, type of tile, counter tops, cabinets, electrical etc.  You can spend several thousand dollars on a spa tub or stand up shower, so it will depend on the things you choose for the bathroom renovation.

Another thing to consider when evaluating a new kitchen or bathroom remodel is  workmanship. In the remodeling and construction business, you tend to get what you pay for. A reputable remodeling company with an expert installation crew may cost more,  but the value of this alone is priceless.  You will appreciate it even more when you get compliments from friends and family.”  Danny Garcia, owner of Rhino Design Build, LLC in San Antonio, Texas.
