Remodeling 101

How much will my new kitchen or bathroom cost? Unless you have detailed design drawings and have selected all of your materials, it’s difficult to give an exact remodel cost— all of which our services can help you with. When it comes to a quality remodel, the design, finishes and options are really what determines the bulk of most project costs. For example, you could spend $2,000, $10,000 or $20,000 (or more) on a new kitchen appliance package. Likewise, you could select custom cabinetry or inexpensive box cabinets; unique quartz countertops or common granite; solid stone tile or porcelain; and the list of choices goes on. While there's always ways to cut costs and save (or spend) money, we recommend remodeling your kitchen or bathroom to match the quality and value of your home and neighborhood. In other words, we wouldn't recommend spending $20,000 on a kitchen appliance package in a $300,000 home, nor would we recommend installing inexpensive box cabinets in a luxury home.
