How Much Does it Cost to Remodel a Kitchen or Bath?

How Much Does it Cost to Remodel a Kitchen or Bath?

The answer starts in a showroom or design center.

Sometimes remodeling a kitchen or bathroom can be intimidating. What should be the design or layout? How much will it cost? What products will look best? These are all reasonable questions that unfortunately, can be hard to answer. The truth is the final cost of most kitchens and bathrooms depends on your tastes. In other words, higher end materials, appliances, fixtures, etc. will lead to a higher investment – but a nicer finished space. How do you know what’s best for you? Start by visiting a showroom or design center.

What you should expect when visiting a showroom

Making the decision to remodel your kitchen or bath is huge. There are so many decisions to be made along the way. A professional showroom’s role is to help you identify the appropriate budget, ease the fear, make selections easier, and ultimately eliminate stress. That’s why it is important to understand that a professional showroom offers more than cabinets, tile backsplashes, countertops, and lighting. A professional showroom is designed to help you make good remodeling decisions.

How can you differentiate one showroom from another? Develop a checklist of information and assurance that a showroom needs to offer to help ensure peace of mind. You should expect a showroom assist you in the following ways:

Kitchen and Bathroom Vignettes

Getting ideas for the investment you want to make in a kitchen or bath starts with determining your style and material preferences. Seeing examples of complete kitchens and bathrooms is helpful. It will give you an opportunity to see how cabinet finishes, countertop materials, sinks, faucets, lighting, appliances, fixtures and tile backsplashes all work together. It’s also an opportunity to ask what a kitchen or bathroom like the display vignette may cost.

Design

Many homeowners are looking for custom kitchen or bath remodels and want to see a variety of possible layouts. The final design will also dictate the final budget. Showrooms and design centers should be able to show you designs and 3D illustrations of other kitchen and bath remodels. These too may help you hone-in on budget ranges.

Team

Spending time visiting a showroom or design center will give you an opportunity to meet the team who will be designing and building your kitchen or bath. Be sure to ask questions about possible product costs, ask to see previous remodeling projects, meet their designers and production managers. All of this will give you peace of mind that you’re selecting the best company for your project.

Communication

You should expect a showroom to ask you how much you want to be involved in the project. You should identify the decisions that you want to be involved with such as how you’d like tile to be placed or approving lighting location before the space is wired. Your showroom team should also determine the best time and methodology for communicating with you if questions need to be answered or problems need to be addressed during the day and after hours.

Potential Concerns

Your best remodeler should help identify concerns you may have and address them. In some cases, it may be your budget, but design and material selections are usually the most common. Showrooms personnel understand that on every project there is a potential for the unknown. To reduce anxiety and potential stress, expect your remodeler to discuss the areas of concern it has before demolition begins.
