One of the first things people generally ask when they call a home remodeling contractor in Westchester about a renovation is the price. “How much will it cost to redo my kitchen?” “Can you update a bedroom on a budget?” These sorts of questions can be hard for a contractor to answer, particularly if they haven’t seen the home. Remodeling prices can vary drastically, depending on the scope of the work, and what sort of materials the customer wants to use. Fundamentally, there isn’t really a price ceiling. However, the team from C.E.T. Painting can offer some very general guidelines on what the costs might look like. Typical Costs When You Hire Home Remodeling Contractors in Westchester Kitchens Kitchens are hugely popular targets for remodeling because they can genuinely add to a home’s value and increase its chances of selling quickly. At the very least, plan on around $250 per square foot to update the decor and paint. Are you also looking to update many of the appliances? It will go up to something more in the area of $350 per square foot, at least. And with kitchens, the sky is the limit. A high-end kitchen remodeling project utilizing the best in materials, cabinetry and appliances could easily top $100,000. One way to possibly save on a kitchen project would be to refurbish instead of replacing cabinets. New hardware and sanding can go a long way towards a refresh. Bathrooms Bathrooms are generally less costly than kitchens, just because they’re smaller and have fewer fixtures. A lower-end job, including some new plumbing and fixtures, can easily come in under $20,000. On the other hand, a high-end update can exceed $500 per square foot, particularly if you’re looking to put in a new shower or tub made of high-end materials. But at the high end, we’re talking marble flooring and faucets that cost $2K apiece. Most people don’t need that for bathroom remodeling unless they’re really shooting the moon. Basements Basements are a great target for renovation. There’s so much you can do with them, and a well-finished basement can be another magnet for buyers. A basic remodel, simply intended to turn it into a living space, could be accomplished as little as $50 per square foot. Even fancier updates will probably come out around $100-$150 per square foot, and that includes adding windows and other structural updates. Westchester County Trusts C.E.T. Painting C.E.T.
