Kitchen and Bathroom Renovation Costs
Kitchens and bathrooms are the most utilised areas in anyone’s home. They are multifunctional and when it comes to selling your home, they are the rooms that buyers scrutinise the most. Naturally how much a kitchen renovation costs is one of the first issues you must face in choosing to renoate either your kitchen or bathroom.
Getting quotes for your renovation is easy, but getting the kitchen and bathroom you want and staying within your budget is a little harder.
Well, how much does it cost to revamp your bathroom or kitchen? The cost of these renovations can depend on a number of variables, including the location of your home, the size of the area, the type of materials used (not to mention the cost of construction materials), the quality of finish and independent installation and labour costs.
According to the 2015/16 Housing Industry Association (HIA) Kitchens and Bathrooms survey, the average cost to renovate a kitchen or bathroom in Australia ranges from $10,000 to $35,000 or even more.
Expect to pay more if you are thinking of a complete renovation or:
– Undertaking any structural work
– Want new features that require additional plumbing works
– Are moving plumbing/or electrical elements
– Replacing all wall and floor tiles
The materials used will have the largest impact on the price tag. For example, tile counters will be cheaper to use than granite or marble countertops. Likewise, vinyl flooring will cost less than ceramic tiles or wood.
For kitchen renovations, another factor set to affect your budget are the type of kitchen appliances you choose, for example, whether you opt for budget electric appliances or top of the range brands.
