The Most Costly Kitchen Renovation Mistakes to Avoid in 2024

Everyone knows the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where we hang out, host gatherings and whip up food to feed our souls. So when it comes to renovating the kitchen, you want to get the most out of your investment.

In Canada, people are spending more than ever on home improvement projects. In the first half of 2021, Canadians spent an extra 66 per cent on such ventures. Of those who wanted to improve their homes, kitchen renovations were at the top of the list.

Unfortunately, prices have gone up as well: in July 2023, the average kitchen remodelling cost was up to $30,944 (or $195 per square foot), but could climb up to $50,000 and higher depending on the choice of appliances and materials.

If you want to invest in your own kitchen but don’t want to break the bank, be sure to avoid these costly kitchen renovation mistakes.
