Estimated renovation cost

4 Replies

Hi all!

I have a unit to renovate in boston and wanted to know labor cost (including only rough materials typically supplied by the contractor) of

1) a averaged sized kitchen remodel (i.e. Demo old kitchen, install new cabinets, appliances, floor tiling and backsplash )

2) bathroom remodel (demo old bathroom install new tub, floor and wall tiling, vanity etc). 

I am assuming no major plumbing upgrades. 

Somewhere between $ 100 and $100,000 .  But I still could be a bit off .

Sorry but you didnt give enough information 

The most accurate (and beneficial to your overall experience) would be to call some local contractors and have them come give you some bids.   

No way to accurately price this for you. Either we need a lot more details, size, layouts, what style cabinet, counters, appliances (at that point you could probably find out costs yourself), or have contractors need to price it for you.

You can start by going out to a big box website and add all the materials to your cart. That will give you the materials cost which can be highly variable on kitchens and bathrooms. From there, you can go to a website like to get labor costs. This will at least give you a starting point for when you start getting bids. Researching all the materials needed also helps understand the general right way that each section of the home goes together, helping you to identify if a contractor cuts big corners.
