What to Remodel First – Kitchen or Bathroom?

When homeowners think about remodeling, it can be tough to decide between redoing the kitchen or tacking the bathrooms. Here are some insights to help you make the right decision, from our laminate countertop edging team.

Which is More Affordable? 

In almost every case, remodeling the bathroom is the more budget-friendly option, as they generally cost around $17,000 according to the national average, compared to the $19,000 that kitchens cost on average. There are also ways to save further on a bathroom remodel, like keeping your plumbing in the same position or upscaling cabinetry.

What Takes the Least Amount of Time? 

Again, bathrooms are the faster option, taking 18 days on average to complete. They are also often easier to handle and less disruptive, as most families have a second bathroom they can use in the meantime. Kitchens are at the other end of the spectrum, taking about 2-6 months to complete, depending on the materials, complexity and size of the remodel. Kitchen remodels are often more of a hassle too, as you have to make other arrangements to cook, store and eat.

What Adds the Most Value to your Home?

Here, kitchens are the winner, as a great kitchen is a stand-out priority for most homebuyers and is well-known as the heart of a home. 52% of real estate agents report that the kitchen is the biggest influence on making a sale, while only 42% report the same for bathrooms.

What is in the Worst Condition? 

This is possibly the most important question to ask, whether you are planning to sell your home or stay in it, as remodeling very poor bathrooms and leaving a decent kitchen (or vice versa) is going to add the most value and quality of life overall. Think about how you use your house and where the biggest pain points are, and choose the option that will make the biggest positive effect on everyone who lives there – and you can’t go wrong!
