Remodel Tour Offers Preview of Over $ 100,000 Kitchens and Home Renovations in Columbus



COLUMBUS (WCMH) – Renovating a kitchen or bathroom during a pandemic has its special challenges: waiting six to eight months for appliances, scarce raw materials and soaring costs.

But home prices are also skyrocketing, allowing homeowners to gain equity and create space to suit their needs.

In Upper Arlington, a family from Andover Road decided to expand their kitchen to accommodate a chef who owns the house.

“We actually took a very small and compact old kitchen, and combined it with the old dining room that was rarely used,” said Bryce Jacob, Element One, the contractor of this house.

“We removed a wall… enlarged the kitchen in that area… there was an old peninsula, a few small seats in the back. It really wasn’t very functional.

There is a six to eight month wait for the devices at this time. “A kitchen remodel doesn’t take six to eight months if you do it right, and you’re not remodeling the whole house at the same time,” Jacob said. “So you really have to plan or delay the start of your construction project. “

Kitchen renovations like this cost anywhere from $ 125,000 to $ 175,000 – and the costs are going up.

“If you open walls, redo floors, install custom cabinetry, solid surface countertops, whether it’s Cambria quartz, granite or concrete, and that comes with costs because they are products. luxury, ”said Jacob.

The means to pay for expenses are savings, home equity lines of credit, or construction loans with a post-completion appraisal.

From October 2-3, you can visit renovation projects in and around Columbus, including Westerville, Powell, Worthington and Upper Arlington, at an event hosted by the Central Ohio Chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry.
