With all the excitement that comes along with a renovation, you have to make sure to be realistic in terms of what it will cost you and how long the project will go on. If you’re looking to remodel you’re home, we’re giving you all the insight on how much a renovation costs and how long it will take to get your dream home.

How Much Does a Remodel Cost?

Home remodel costs depend on a few key factors such as the size of your home, location, the quality of materials you use, etc.  Different rooms also come with different costs. According to Houzz’s 2018 Houzz and Home Study, kitchens are the most popular rooms to renovate, with guests bathrooms coming in at the no.2 spot, and master bathrooms at no.3.

In 2017, the median spend on a kitchen renovation was $11,000, and the median spend on a large kitchen with at least all cabinets and appliances being replaced was $33,000. The median cost for a master bathroom remodel was $7,000, and that median cost rose up between $10,000 to $16,000 for master bathroom remodels with at least the countertops, vanity, cabinetry, and toilets replaced.

The median cost for other interior room renovations ranged from $500 for a closet remodel to $3,000 for a family/living room renovation. The overall median renovation spend was $15,000.
