Nothing fancy, but looking to replace pretty much everything... Preferred materials would be:
- SS appliances (Samsung/LG)
- Laminate/vaneer cabinets
- Quarts tops and ceramic/glass backsplash
- Ceramic tiles in bathroom
- Vinyl flooring

The place is in Vancouver.

If you DIY I think you might be able to do all of that for around 15-20k if your condo will allow DIY.

Professional install will double that cost I’d say. That would probably include plans for the condo corp and everything.

FYI I’d knock out that kitchen wall and open up the space to living room with an island. That would add cost too, because you’d swap stove electrical + vent as well as plumbing for sink, but would make the place look way more modern. You’d also want to add more lighting to kitchen (potlights/island pendants).

Good luck!

if i were you, i would paint the cabinets (all of them, kitchen and bathroom) , change flooring to LVP throughtout the condo. pickup SS appliances from Kijiji or marketplace and get someone to come in and redo the tiles in the bathtub and also get granite. shouldnt be more than 15k.

From the sounds of it, you want to redo the entire bathroom and kitchen... prob looking at 50k-70k.

$15K-$20K very easily doable (replacing everything)

Bathroom is probably 10-15K

Kitchen would be around 30K (w/ appliances) assuming no changes to layout / wall removal

If your condo allows, get notice early. My wife's nephew just renovated his, Yonge Finch area, $50K for kitchen, it was not DIY for him, cash deal. His neighbours complained to management about the noise.

Now that I think about this again, given that it’s an older unit, I would just do cosmetic Reno’s - fresh coat of paint, new quartz countertops (a splurge in this case), paint kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity, new vinyl flooring throughout the entire unit, some new light fixtures and kitchen/bathroom hardware, and call it a day. This might cost you 10-20k already. Save your $ for investments and your next purchase.

With LG/Samsung . you may get more bells and whistles but you will need to replace sooner than you thought. Their parts are hard to find and more expensive.

This should not be more than 10K imo. I just did quartz countertop (~14 linear ft) with new undermount ss sink and faucet, tiles for kitchen floor (110 sq ft), painting about 800 sq ft, new ELFs, recarpet stairs for about 7k. None of this was DIY.
