Despite the unlimited access to online renovation information, it’s not easy to accurately budget for a new kitchen or bath. For example, if you visited the Houzz.com website to search for farmhouse sinks, your search would deliver more than 77,000 results, with prices ranging from $150 to more than $5,000. How could anyone know which farmhouse sink would be the perfect fit among 77,000+ options? Budgeting is made even more difficult by home improvement television. HGTV, DYI and other networks do not produce documentaries. They are in the entertainment business. As such, many times, the budgets quoted for kitchen, bath and home renovation projects do not include the cost of labor, which can account for more than 50% of the budget, depending on the nature and scope of the project. Home improvement television is an excellent source of inspiration, but an unreliable and inaccurate resource for budgeting and scheduling.
