some properties may need to have the bathroom or kitchen remodeled.

Help the community by answering this question:



The answer depends on the level of remodeling you are going to do and the size of the areas you are planning to remodel. An excellent place to get information about average prices (and maybe even find a someone that can do the work for you), is a recently launched web site I came across -
They show average pricies for different types of projects with pictures and info about who did the work.
Hope this helps...

The best way to really understand the costs behind a kitchen or a bathroom remodeling is to simply request an estimate. Contractors are literally throwing themselves at homeowners for a chance to earn there business.

To truly understand the costs take into consideration each type of mini project that goes into place. For kitchens there a few things to consider. Kitchen cabinets are by far the most expensive part of your kitchen. Custom tailored kitchen cabinets can be very expensive. There are cheaper alternatives but rarely last more than 5 years. Second most expensive part of your kitchen is counter tops. Are you considering quartz? Stone? Concrete? wood? tile? Caesar Stone? etc. The higher quality and customization the more it costs. Then there are the extra elements to consider. What type of flooring you need in your kitchen? Would you like back splash or just paint? How about upgrading your windows in your kitchen? Is there leaks in the Plumbing? Generally, an average size kitchen 20 to 35k.

As for bathrooms remodeling project, it matters on the size and level of elegance. The biggest concern for most is tiling correctly and evenly. Once tiling is done right, showers/tubs are the next concern. There are many different types of tubs and showers to consider and each bring on its own prices. Finally its the vanity and lighting. Vanities can be installed easily and standard options are available at your nearest Home Depot. Costs for an average bathroom range fro 6k to 15k depending on factors.

It really depends what you will do in the bathroom. I had 2 bathrooms done in my house a month ago. 1 bathroom was $5000 and the other one was lot more because it was larger and used expensive material.

Here is a number of someone we've used before: 310-619-5557(I've got his number from a coldwell banker's real estate agent in Los Angeles)
His name is Yanni and he is from a construction company that have been in business for 30 years, they will give you a better idea where you're standing.

Good luck.

A lot of people are using "handymen" to get cheap work "Handyman" is usually another word for unlicensed and uninsured, you will be liable for all damages, poor quality and injuries, but you'll save money.

Try using a small sized licensed and insured co. have a simple but clear plan on paper with fixture model numbers, faucets, tile brands and other things you desire and then get three bids.

Don't go to a Home Depot go to a real plumbing, tile, etc. wholesaler that will sell to the public they'll help you out the right way.

Try online yellow pages.

It really depends how high end you would like to go to have the kitchen and bathroom remodeled. Clients I represented on a home purchase recently remodeled their huge kitchen and 2 bathrooms with exceptional finishes for around $50,000. They could have probably saved $10-15k with a lesser remodel, but they had specific requirements.

I'm happy to refer a few contractors your way that you could receive estimates from.

Hey Labuyer1,

If you aren't too fussy and do everything on the middle end, I would say for an average size kitchen you are looking at 30-35k. For a bath remodel, if it's a complete remodel and full bath I would say about 10k.

Always good to get estimates though and allow for overages on any budget.

Exactly, it all depends on the scope of work, if wall, plumbing, and electicity etc. need to be significantly changed and you fondness for finer things.

The kitchen remodel would be considerably more than a bathroom simply because of the amount of cabinets, larger size, and appliances. The previous post is on the mark for a price range of between $5,000 and $50,000.

You can save yourself a lot of money by pulling the permits for the work yourself and having an experienced tradesman do the work for you on the side.

Good luck
