Home renovation involves sprucing up finishes, fixing minor issues, and sometimes replacing basic items. It also includes tasks such as refacing cabinets, repainting surfaces, replacing floors, and updating windows and doors. It's mainly cosmetic and tends to be less expensive.

On the other hand, a home remodel is a significant project often involving replacing flooring, walls, and ceilings, and reconfiguring plumbing and electrical systems. It aims to make substantial changes such as adding rooms, creating new kitchen layouts, building decks, expanding rooms, removing walls, or combining spaces for a more open layout. Due to the extensive work involved, it's generally more costly than a renovation.

The expenses for a home renovation project typically fall within the range of $15,000 to $300,000, contingent upon the extent of renovations.

Here's a breakdown of what you can expect for a certain investment:

  • $15,000 to $50,000: This price range could encompass tasks such as painting, new flooring, and countertop installations.
  • $51,000 to $70,000: This type of budget could include a comprehensive remodel of one or two rooms. It also allows for upscale flooring options such as marble or hardwood flooring.
  • More than $71,000: Such a budget provides considerable flexibility. You could undertake extensive projects such as kitchen and bathroom remodeling, potentially restructuring layouts by removing walls, painting, new flooring installation, custom cabinet installation, and top-of-the-line home appliances.

The anticipated returns on investment (ROI) from a whole house remodel range from 40% to 80%.

When budgeting for a home renovation or remodel, consider the house's condition, desired additions, and local property values. Avoid overspending based on emotions; prioritize return on investment (ROI). Use Kukun's renovation cost calculator for accurate budgeting.

Stick to spending limits based on room values relative to the overall house value. For instance, allocate around 15% for a kitchen remodel if the house is valued at $350,000. Similarly, limit spending on a master bathroom to 10%, and smaller rooms such as a powder room to 5%. And, room additions should aim for a cost per square foot below the home's selling price.

Giving your home a makeover can be an expensive affair. Unless you have ready cash, you'll want some financial aid. There are several ways to finance a home improvement project. You can opt for a secured loan such as a home equity loan or a home equity line of credit (HELOC). Or, an unsecured loan such as a personal loan. Other funding options include cash-out refinancing or taking a loan against a retirement plan.

To choose the best loan option, the first step is to use a reliable loan calculator. The calculator will help you compute your loan payments for a loan amount, at a particular loan interest. It's a smart way to compare all your financial options and gauge what you can truly afford.
