How much does it cost to do a Kitchen renovation in Toronto
Planning to update your kitchen? I think that the first question you would ask is how much does it cost. There are many variables - same like buying a car. Therefore it is always best to determine how much you would like to spend - you aren't going to a dealer who sells $20K cars if you are looking for a $50K car and vice versa.
Average Kitchen Renovation Cost in Toronto
The average renovation cost of a mid sized kitchen with mid-level finishes ranges between $50,000 to $75,000. That's includes custom cabinetry with quartz countertops and basic repairs like HVAC, drywall, minor plumbing and electrical, and project management fees (around 25-30% of the total budget).

Permits usually cost around $5000 but depending on the complexity could be more.
There is no fixed price for kitchen renovation because there are many variations from protect to project. But the two main things that affect the price are size (and height! ) of the kitchen and desired finishes (doors, cabinetry, countertops, etc) - check here for some cabinet features to consider.
Kitchen countertops and backsplash
Stone countertops and backsplash would be a big part of the your budget. Depending on the stone - it could be around $100-200 per square foot with fabrication and installation.
There are many important factors like edge profile, total SQFTage, complexity of the installation and fabrication, etc
What Are the Steps in a Kitchen Renovation?
1 - Set a budget
Come up with a number on how much you want to spend on the renovation. Consider budgeting an extra 10 to 20 percent for unexpected costs that might arise.
2 - Design stage
This is the most exciting step in the whole process for the customers.
3 - Hire a Contractor
Research and select a contractor you feel comfortable with . Be sure to sign contracts that help define the scope of work and the process to potentially avoid or resolve any problems
4 - Obtain Permits
Depending on the work you are planning to do it might be required to get a building permit or management approval when renovating a condo.
5 - Demolition
Regardless of how big your kitchen upgrade is, there will be demolition involved. Typical demolition will involve removing old countertops,cabinets, and tiles. Depending on the project, walls, popcorn ceiling, bulkhead, or drop ceiling might be removed next.
6 - Work Behind the Walls
Now, it is the time for work behind walls, under floors, and above ceilings — mainly electrical and plumbing. Add wires for new outlets, switches, appliances, and relocating plumbing pipes if needed. Next, patch, hang drywall, tape and sand for smooth exterior surfaces.
6 - Drywall
This dusty stage might take a wile. We will install drywall, tape and sand for smooth exterior finish. After or during that stage we could also fix the existing sub-floor or install new one.
7 - Painting
Its always better to prime and paint before doing the floor because is very easy to damage and very hard to fix.
8 - Install Flooring
When all the dirty work is done, its time to do the flooring. The most preferred type is hardwood or tiles as they last longer and give the kitchen designer look.
9 - Install Cabinets
Now when walls and floors are done, cabinets are typically installed next, with upper cabinets going in before lower ones. This step the major part of the kitchen renovation and take the most of the money out of the budget for entire project.
10 - Countertop
After cabinets are installed, we can do a template for a countertop, fabricate it, and than install. Its usually takes 3-5 days as countertops have to be custom made and cut for your cabinetry and sink space.
11 - Appliances
While your countertops is being fabricated, its a good time to bring in and install appliances.
12 - Plumbing Works
Our licensed plumber will connect your sink, dishwasher, fridge, and other appliances that require a water line.
13 - Backsplash
Tile or quartz backslash can be installed before or after plumbing, depending on the project, but it doesn't take much time do it. If it is quartz, then it will be templated after the countertop installation and fabrication will take a few days (during which appliances will be installed and plumbing works done)
14 - Lighting
Our electrician will install new light fixtures, outlets, sockets, and undercabinet lights. Everything is almost done.
15 - Finishing Touches
After final painting, hardware installation,other touch-ups, and clean-up, you will be able to move in into your new place! Very exiting moment :)
