How much will my renovations cost in the current market?

04 August, 2021

One of the most common questions these days, if you are transforming your home in any way, is, how much will my renovations cost me in the current market. As one of Denver’s top interior designers, I have seen some very interesting prices these days. But let's take a look at the number one main renovation category to get an idea of costs: Kitchen renovations.
Kitchen renovation costs vary widely depending on the size, the finishes, and appliances that you choose, but on average in the Denver metro area, you can spend anywhere from $18,000 for a small kitchen remodel, $30,000 for a medium kitchen remodel, or $50,000 for a larger kitchen remodel. For a major upscale kitchen remodel, your costs can range from approximately $70,000 to $136,000.
The size of your kitchen impacts your remodel costs, the larger the kitchen the more you will pay for materials and labor. Here are some pricing examples for different kitchen sizes and what you might reasonably expect to be included in the costs:
  • 40 to 60-square-foot kitchen (small): $16,000-$18,000 for a standard renovation, including new counters, floor, backsplash, cabinets, and mid-range appliances.
  • 135 to 165-square-foot kitchen (medium): $28,000-$30,000 for galley kitchen in a townhome or smaller home, including new counters, floor, backsplash, cabinets, and mid-range appliances.
There is no one-size-fits-all template for kitchen remodels, and the cost per square foot is always relative to what is included. When getting quotes from contractors, always compare beyond the price per square foot.
Next article, we will look into a cost breakdown of appliances, countertops, and cabinets so that you have a better understanding of how these choices impact your bottom line.
