If you’re looking to make some quick improvements that don’t cost you a bunch of cash, then the touchup is a great solution.
The Touchup kitchen remodel consists of:
-Replacing Your Countertop With Granite or Quartz Countertops
-Maybe adding a tile backsplash
The most common touchup is replacing your old tile or laminate countertops with a Granite or Quartz surface. They’re beautiful, durable, and cost on average between $2,500 - $4,500.
(This is for a kitchen hovering around 50sqft of total countertop space with 1 sink cutout)
Obviously the bigger your kitchen, the higher the cost. And if you have a larger kitchen with an island, you’re typically looking at an additional 2-3 slabs to complete the job.
You can get a nice subway tile from Floor & Decor for as little as $1.20/sqft.
Assuming you have 40 sqft of backsplash, you’d spend approx $50 on the tile, $25 on 2 one gallon buckets of tile adhesive (mastic), and $15 on a bag of grout.
You’d spend less than $100 on materials.
If you subbed this job out to a local tile installer, they’d probably install the tile for you for $600-$800.
All in on tile backsplash cost? Less than $1,000 for 40 sqft of tile.
Kitchen Remodel Cost for “The Touchup”: $3,500-$4,500.
