You’ve saved your pennies and crafted a Pinterest board that would make Joanna Gaines go weak at the knees. And now? Well…you’re ready to renovate your kitchen!
But wait a second: Before you break out the sledgehammer, wouldn’t it be helpful to see what things actually cost—and which reno trends are dominating—for 2019? Luckily, our data-crunching friends at Houzz just conducted a national survey on the subject. Below, the most illuminating numbers to consider if you’re renovating this year.
$11,000: The national median spend on all kitchen remodels. This seemingly modest benchmark figure is the average of all kitchen renovations, both big and small, which were collected from the survey’s 1,337 participants.
$33,000: The average cost of a major kitchen remodel of 200-plus square feet. OK, well that’s a more sobering number. If you’ve got a big kitchen in need of all-new everything (cabinets! appliances!), this is the ballpark of what you can expect to spend on the overhaul.
