Preparing your budget is one of the most important steps in the remodeling process. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to guess how much you’ll need to spend to update or expand your Northern Virginia home. Our guide to common home renovation costs provides the information you need to create a realistic budget.
An old, outdated kitchen not only affects the resale value of your home, but can make it challenging to prepare meals for your family or entertain a crowd. In addition to improving the appearance and function of your kitchen, a renovation also upgrades outdated electrical and plumbing systems and may even lower your utility costs if you currently use appliances that aren’t energy efficient. No matter what style of kitchen you prefer, a renovation offers the perfect way to make meal preparation more enjoyable and increase your home’s value.
Kitchen costs vary depending on the square footage, floor plan, structural changes, features and finishes. Here’s an explanation of the factors that affect cost and an estimate for upscale kitchen renovations in Northern Virginia. After you read this post, you’ll want to take a look at a few kitchen remodeling mistakes to avoid.
Large, luxurious bathrooms weren’t always a priority when older Northern Virginia homes were built. Although your bathroom may offer everything you need, it might not include features that can turn the room into an elegant oasis, such as soaking tubs, steam showers, high-tech toilets and heated floors.
Costs can range from $66,000 for an upscale bathroom remodel to approximately $90,000 for a bathroom addition in our area, according to Remodeling’s 2019 Cost vs. Value Report. Are you curious about what you’ll get for those amounts and how you can avoid wasting your money? Check out our posts on bathroom renovation costs and common mistakes.
If you’ve run out of room in your home, an addition can give you all the space you need for a luxurious master bedroom suite, spacious family room/kitchen combination or the ultimate home theater and game room.
Size, number of stories, foundation type and fixtures and finishes play a role in addition costs, as do site challenges. We explain what you’ll pay to add on to your home and how you can avoid post-renovation regrets.
